    Design Director
    Kounkuey Design Initiative
    Full-time
     
    Job Description

    Kounkuey Design Initiative (KDI) is an international, non-profit, design and community development firm, offering landscape architecture among its many services. KDI uses design as a tool for social justice. Specifically, the firm collaborates with under-resourced communities to advance equity and activate the unrealized potential in neighborhoods and cities. This mission is accomplished through advocacy, research, planning, and built works. Often, KDI works with local residents, to transform unsafe and under-utilized places, into “Productive Public Spaces”. From permanent parks, to temporary vacant lot activations, each space integrates key amenities such as community buildings, water and sanitation facilities, green infrastructure, and open spaces for recreation and exercise. KDI executes all phases of the design process. KDI believes community-led planning is key to sustainable and equitable change, so KDI also helps residents design and implement programming that generates income, energizes culture, builds community capacity, and brings the Productive Public Spaces to life for years to come. KDI designs “with” each client, and not “for”.


    The firm has five departments: design, planning, community, research, and operations. KDI started when 6 students at Harvard University Graduate School of Design, developed a two-week research project in Nairobi, Kenya. That project took on a life of its own, and KDI was formed in 2010. With offices in Los Angeles, Nairobi, and Stockholm, KDI continues to grow and further its mission, with domestic and international projects. KDI has been recognized for its innovative approach to poverty alleviation by notable institutions such as The Rockefeller Foundation, UN-Habitat, The California Endowment, Ashoka Changemakers, American Express, Annenberg Alchemy, Smithsonian Institute, IDEO, Echoing Green, The Atlantic Renewal Project, and UN/Dubai and Swiss Re Foundation.

    SUPERSTRUCTURE
    Freelance
     
    Job Description

    The company: architecturally-focused real estate

    SUPERSTRUCTURE is a start-up real estate company co-founded by Noah Walker and Jack Byron which aims to change the way in which homes are bought and sold and will have a strong design focus and interest in residential architecture of all eras and typologies.


    Noah Walker is an American Architect and the founder of Walker Workshop, a design-build firm based in Los Angeles that is known for creating modern structures that are warmly minimal and deeply rooted in the context of their location. Jack Byron is principal of design-focused real estate developer California English and has previously worked for a number of architectural luminaries including Norman Foster, Philippe Starck and Zaha Hadid.


    The job: freelance research assistants

    We are currently constructing a database of every architecturally-significant single-family house and multi-unit residential building, initially in Los Angeles, and eventually in Southern California generally. It will be a significant project encompassing every notable architectural style of building completed by a known-architect and/or featured in the architectural press, from Spanish Colonial to Contemporary.


    At this point we are genuinely unsure of how many unique entries the database will have but it could be upwards of 4-5000. Initially the database will be used for commercial purposes but eventually we would like to make it available as a resource to academics for research.


    The job will involve researching various print (architecture monographs, geographical and typological guides) and online resources about Los Angeles as well as actually entering the data into our database.


    The work is freelance in nature, the project will most probably be 2-3 months in duration though there may be a longer term opportunity available. The work could be undertaken parttime or full-time to suit the applicant and could be a suitable summer job for under/postgraduates.

    Qualifications

    A focused self-starter, preferably, though not necessarily with previous research experience, with an interest in architecture or design, historic buildings and Southern California. The applicant will most likely be a current architecture or design undergraduate or perhaps postgraduate student.

    How to Apply

    Please apply with resume and cover letter/email explaining your interest and suitability to Jack Byron: jbyron@gmail.com

    SUPERSTRUCTURE
    Freellance
     
    Job Description

    The company: architecturally-focused real estate

    SUPERSTRUCTURE is a start-up real estate company co-founded by Noah Walker and Jack

    Byron which aims to change the way in which homes are bought and sold and will have a strong design focus and interest in residential architecture of all eras and typologies.


    Noah Walker is an American Architect and the founder of Walker Workshop, a design-build firm based in Los Angeles that is known for creating modern structures that are warmly minimal and deeply rooted in the context of their location. Jack Byron is principal of design-focused real estate developer California English and has previously worked for a number of

    architectural luminaries including Norman Foster, Philippe Starck and Zaha Hadid.


    The job: freelance research assistants

    We are currently constructing a database of every architecturally-significant single-family

    house and multi-unit residential building, initially in Los Angeles, and eventually in Southern

    California generally. It will be a significant project encompassing every notable architectural

    style of building completed by a known-architect and/or featured in the architectural press,

    from Spanish Colonial to Contemporary.


    At this point we are genuinely unsure of how many unique entries the database will have but it could be upwards of 4-5000. Initially the database will be used for commercial purposes but eventually we would like to make it available as a resource to academics for research.


    The job will involve researching various print (architecture monographs, geographical and

    typological guides) and online resources about Los Angeles as well as actually entering the

    data into our database.


    The work is freelance in nature, the project will most probably be 2-3 months in duration

    though there may be a longer term opportunity available. The work could be undertaken parttime or full-time to suit the applicant and could be a suitable summer job for under/postgraduates.

    Qualifications

    A focused self-starter, preferably, though not necessarily with previous research experience,

    with an interest in architecture or design, historic buildings and Southern California. The

    applicant will most likely be a current architecture or design undergraduate or perhaps postgraduate student.

    How to Apply

    Please apply with resume and cover letter/email explaining your interest and suitability to Jack Byron: jbyron@gmail.com

    Thank you
