Richard Jost, Architect

      Richard Jost grew up in Bakersfield, California, spending his summer months assisting his father with residential construction. In 1961, after building his first house independently at the age of 19, Richard was recruited to the University of Houston on a basketball scholarship and played for two years with the U of H Cougars under coach Guy Lewis.  In 1966 he was drafted into the U.S. Army, and was honorably discharged as a Vietnam Veteran in 1967. He then returned to the University of Houston to complete his Bachelor of Architecture, awarded in 1970.  After completing his training at the U of H, Richard Jost began work as an independent architect and contractor. Unwilling to choose between pushing the pencil or swinging the hammer, he adopted a design and build approach to architecture which has persisted to this date. Through the years, he has completed projects in California, Vermont, Texas, and New Mexico, some of which have earned wide recognition through awards and publications. From 1976 to 1986, Richard practiced design and build as a registered architect in the State of Texas. After relocating to New Mexico in 1986, he was licensed by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB), and regionally by the New Mexico State Board of Examiners for Architects.
