    Assistant Architecturual Lighting Designer
    Auerbach Glasow
    Full-time
     
    Job Description

    Come join our team in San Francisco! You’ll get to work on some really cool international and domestic projects - occasionally high-rise, at times underground, the theatrical and astronomical, private residences and public exhibits, progressive solutions in historic renovations, institutions but never institutional. Experiment with mock-ups in our in-house Light Lab using a variety of light fixtures and materials, and gain hands-on experience with the latest lighting technology. With us, you will put your college degree to good use while designing for real-world applications. Our firm has been around since 1972 and we want to share our knowledge and experience with you. Here, you’ll enjoy autonomy while being part of our dedicated and loyal crew.


    Here are a few of our projects you may have heard of:

    • Pixar Animation Studios

    • Boston University, Booth Theatre and College of Fine Arts Production Center

    • Monterey Bay Aquarium

    • Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Wrightsman Galleries

    • Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired

    • Vancouver International Airport

    • Salesforce Transit Center

    • Carnegie Hall, Zankel Hall

    • MGM Grand Hotel and Casino, KÀ™ by Cirque du Soleil®

    • University of California Berkeley, School of Law

    • Shanghai Grand Theatre

    Qualifications

    You will show off your skills in Revit, AutoCAD, AGi32, and hand drafting. You know how to perform computer-generated and by-hand lighting calcs. You have a college degree in a related discipline, possibly even a master’s, but you’re still enthusiastic about learning. Bonus points if you know your way around Adobe Creative Suite, 3D AutoCAD, SketchUp, and Rhino. You’ll select lighting fixtures for projects and produce fixture schedules based on design concepts.


    Our typical work week is Monday to Friday, though there may be occasional after-hours work for night site visits and infrequent weekend work for project deadlines. Please be authorized to work in the US. In exchange, you will be a part of a strong, passionate design team who enjoys health insurance, commuter benefits, and a 401(k) plan (which is never too early to think about) in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.


    Our office is near the base of Telegraph Hill, and a quick walk to North Beach, Chinatown, and historic Jackson Square where you’ll find some of the oldest buildings in the city. Our expansive office windows illuminate a daylight-filled, open studio where you can easily collaborate with your team. Our location is oh-so-convenient to public transportation - we are a short BART ride away from the East Bay, and San Francisco’s network of sustainable public transportation can get you anywhere within this 7 x 7 city.

    So, are you ready to let your talents shine at Auerbach Glasow? If you have what we’re looking for, enlighten us by sending in a cover letter of interest along with your resume and portfolio to jobs@auerbachconsultants.com.

    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.

    Position Overview:

    The Design Director will be responsible for strengthening and growing KDI’s landscape design practice; building our staff’s and organization’s capacity to deliver innovative, multi-faceted built projects; and expanding our reach to new communities throughout California and the U.S. We’re looking for someone with a strong interest in social justice and participatory processes; exceptional design ability; extensive experience implementing built projects; a track record as a leader who can work collaboratively, mentor staff, and carry out a vision for what design can achieve in under-resourced communities.

    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

    Thank you
