Safdie Architects is a design studio driven by a spirit of innovation and idealism, founded upon the guiding principles that architecture should be inherently timeless, connected to nature, and profoundly humane. Their design philosophy is rooted in Moshe Safdie’s powerful metaphor: “For Everyone a Garden”, the beautifully simple notion that sees architecture as a generous act of connecting us to nature and creating meaningful spaces of community that serve as catalysts for vibrant public life.
Safdie Architects is seeking young designers with exceptional creativity and communication skills to join their design practice. The position requires experience in the production of concept, schematic, and design development documents for large-scale, programmatically complex public and private projects. The architectural designer will be involved in a project from concept through completion, working directly with Moshe Safdie and the firm’s Design Principals to develop and execute the design. Aside from involvement in architectural projects, designers will have the opportunity to work on research-driven efforts and assist with publications and exhibitions.
In addition to an aptitude for design and problem solving, candidates must be highly motivated and can work effectively in a collaborative team environment. Safdie Architects relies heavily on the building of physical models, the use of advanced digital design software and techniques, rapid-prototyping, etc. – candidates must have demonstrated skills in these areas:
· Expertise in AutoCAD, Rhino, Adobe Suite, and rendering software (EnScape, Lumion, VRay)
· Excellent visual and verbal communication skills
· Strong working knowledge of REVIT and experience with BIM preferred
· All applicants must have the authorization to work within the United States
