As the industry starts to pick up again, we have gotten a new offer from Wheeler Kearns Architects in Chicago. They are looking for a Junior Architect, and already have a Job+J1 Visa Program participant in their office. Keep a look out for more offers as we start to pick up the process.
Their design process requires an uncommon level of attention, curiosity, devotion. Their clients use the word “partner” to describe them as often as “architect.” And they are proud of that. It reflects their belief that along with a lofty vision, sometimes you also need someone willing to tackle the mundane.
One mind focused on solving your problem is good; many are better. They use their unusual structure as a “collective practice of architects” to solicit multiple ideas from a team in the early stages of the design process. It offers you a wider spectrum of possibility. And that can lead to solutions that nobody anticipated, like transforming a shuttered lumberyard into a model, 21st-century school. Or discovering that the 70-foot tower of an abandoned food-manufacturing plant really can be a viable and exciting performance space. Always, they seek to open doors to new ideas about how you can live into your aspiration.
