Joshua Lentz, AIA, LEED AP BD+C
Associate | Architect
Joshua joined Hacin in 2013 after working with GMI Architects and Horizontal Systems, a pioneer of cloud-based BIM collaboration (now Autodesk BIM360 Glue). He received a Master of Architecture from Roger Williams University and had the opportunity to study abroad in Italy, Spain, and The Netherlands. Graduate school amplified his interest in urban design and how contextually responsible place-making can reveal regional history, culture, inequality, and ecology. He was awarded a Salmanson Travel Grant to further explore some of these themes for his thesis in Israel. While at Hacin, Joshua has gained experience across project types, including private residential and commercial mixed-use, and worked on award-winning projects such as Public Garden Townhouse. He feels fortunate to be able to incorporate his interests for preservation, social equity, and sustainability into practice and education. Joshua is a registered architect, AIA member, LEED AP BD+C credentialed, and is well-versed in Boston’s public approvals process. In 2018 and 2022, he returned to his alma mater to help teach a graduate architectural design studio as part of Hacin’s participation in the school’s Teaching Firm in Residence Program. Outside of the office, he can be found playing basketball, traveling, or exploring the many parks of Boston and Greater New England.
