We’re seeking an Urban Designer with a minimum of 5 to 7 years of experience to join our Chicago office.
Working collaboratively with a design team on multiple aspects of urban design and planning, the Urban Designer communicates overall urban design concepts, objectives, and critical issues, applying their knowledge to tasks and assignments; develops design sketches, renderings, models, and graphics for presentation materials; responds to the technical implications of urban design decisions; and facilitates studio and project goals.
This person must demonstrate a well-developed understanding of conceptual urban design documents and fundamental theories of urban design, project design, and execution. A five-year bachelor’s degree in Architecture or master’s degree in Urban Design with advanced knowledge of drafting and 3-D rendering software (Rhino, AutoCAD, Revit) is required. Prior project management and strategic planning experience is preferred.
Founded and led by architect Jeanne Gang, Studio Gang is an architecture and urban design practice with offices in Chicago, New York, and San Francisco. The Studio works as a collective of more than 100 architects, designers, and urban planners, employing a design process that foregrounds relationships between individuals, communities, and environments. A sustainability ethos is central to the practice, coupled with a methodology defined by research and experimentation, including collaborations with a wide range of disciplines both inside and outside the traditional design field.
Studio Gang offers a competitive compensation and benefits package that includes medical, dental, vision, basic life, short-term disability, long-term disability, and voluntary/term life insurance; holidays and paid time off; and 401k enrollment and profit sharing.
