Jamar Moore is currently a candidate of the Master of Architecture/Master of Urban Design Program and Research Assistant at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He received his Bachelor of Science in Architecture with a minor in Architectural History from the University of Virginia in 2013. While at the University of Virginia, he was a member of the National Association of Minority Architects (NOMA) and was Vice President of the University of Virginia Chapter of NOMAS, the student chapter of NOMA. At the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, he is an active member of the UNC Charlotte Chapter of NOMAS, serving as the Treasurer for the 2017-2018 academic year. During the Comprehensive Design Studio, Jamar, along with his studio partner, placed second out of the fifteen groups for their design of the Charlotte Opera Hall in Uptown Charlotte, entitled Overture. As an amateur photographer, he was recognized as a Top 100 Finalist in Adorama’s Top Photo of 2017. He is a student who believes that despite past notions, design has had, and will continue to have, a large effect on social issues that plague this country. With this in mind, he believes that it is important that architecture responds to its surrounding urban context in a way that enhances the quality of life by meeting the present needs and preparing for the demands of the future.
