Jason Macdonald is the principal of JMAC. His diverse professional experience has exposed him to innovative community design techniques that are based on Traditional Town Planning. His technical skills and experience include Architectural, Civil, Urban Design and Project Management.

Signatory to the NZ Urban Design Protocol, Jason has shown great leadership and passion to create New Zealand’s example of traditional neighbourhood planning.

Global travel with international urban design affiliates DPZ , RobertsDay, Studio LFA, Simon Youngleson Architects has enabled him to research, document and experience the most successful and vibrant communities - inherent livable qualities in ideal human habitats.
