The buildings that make up the landscape of our daily lives seem like permanent fixtures, fastened to a time and place. But what if that didn’t have to be true? What if our built environment — where we live, learn, play, and conduct business — carried us forward instead?
Our Buildings practice keeps people at its heart, recognizing that our shared journey forward is shaped by the meaningful and responsive places we design. From iconic designs to monumental groundbreakings, join us to bring transformational building solutions to life. Every day we apply our expertise, creativity, and passion to propel communities into the future—join us!
Our built environment is transforming rapidly as world events drive new paradigms about where we live, learn, play, and conduct business.

Join us to contribute your ideas and skills in this exciting time of change and innovation.

Collaboration is required between different disciplines on the project team including site planners, architects, interior designers, and subconsultants. The role is highly interactive, including presenting information and ideas to the internal team and the client, assisting in facilitating workshops and running meetings.
