Are you a young architect, artist, designer or computer programmer interested in making stuff? Low Design Office is hiring for project-based design work through the first quarter of 2014.
LOWDO is an architecture and design studio based in San Antonio, Texas and Tema, Ghana that aims for more with less: we make high performance buildings, landscapes, tools and systems with low environmental impact and low energetics (efficient use of materials, optimized operations and maintenance, low carbon footprint). We contend that low is the new minimalism: meaningful aesthetics and design innovation emerge from bottom-up responses to low supply.
To date our team has worked on projects on five continents that span social design, community engagement and low-cost sustainable construction with a practical, hands-on commitment to innovative environmental research through design/build. We are looking for dynamic, highly motivated and proactive candidates with strong design, graphics and 3D modeling skills who are precise, detail-oriented and capable of working independently.
. Bachelors or Masters Degree in Architecture, Art, Design or Computer Science
. Proficiency with AutoCAD and Rhino
. Working knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator)
. Experience with rendering, illustration and graphic design
. Capable of concept design and development, rapid iteration at high level
. Hands-on ability to build physical models, prototypes, construction and finish carpentry
. Any experience in the following is a plus: web development, mobile, hardware, robotics and mechatronics, metal-work, environmental science, videography and media communications
Interested candidates should submit a PDF portfolio to firstname.lastname@example.org with portfolio, resume and cover letter indicating your timeframe of availability and preference for Ghana or Texas office. Please note that given volume not all submissions may receive a response.
