William E.S. Kaufman – 1st LEED–accredited Architect in New JerseyUnited States Green Building Council
PUSHING THE ENVELOPE OF INNOVATION
"What if learning architecture means forgetting what you know about architecture? That’s the question William Kaufman, president and founder of New Jersey-based WESKetch Architecture, has repeatedly posed throughout his career.
The designer’s incurable itch to pursue new possibilities in his field made him New Jersey’s first LEED AP in 2000, and it earned him the AIA’s Young Architect of the Year Award the year after that.
It has landed him on the cover of Architectural Record; it has gotten him featured in Architectural Digest and on HGTV, NBC, and PBS; and it even resulted in the publishing of his own monograph."
