Architectural Designer

ReThink Studio is a New York City-based transportation planning firm with a reputation for developing holistic solutions that address small and large-scale transportation problems.  Our proposals are bold, practical, and address topical issues about transit throughout cities. From our inaugural proposal to expand LaGuardia into Rikers Island - which now has the support of the NY Times editorial board, the NYC City Council and the Cuomo Administration - to our ongoing impact on the debate around Penn Station. We are fond of a quote by the British poet and architectural critic John Betjeman: “Transport, more than anything, changes a place.” Through our ReThinkNYC proposal, we aim to do just that, and we are looking to grow our team with talented designers and architects.

On a whole range of social, economic, and political issues, creating ubiquitous rail-based transit as a reasonable alternative to the automobile has the power to improve the lives of millions and serve as a model not just for the U.S., but the entire world. We believe this is the power of ReThinkNYC.

Architects have always led the way in city planning. With an education that is a rich mixture of holistic and problem solving skills with graphic and verbal abilities, a background in architecture gives us the ability to work in many scales of space and time at once.

Our small office is a collaborative environment, allowing everyone to learn new skills and grow. This is a good place for designers who are interested in expanding responsibility within the office. The work ranges widely in scale - architectural to the urban to the regional - and media - animations, graphics, publications, outreach, writing, and drawing - and is provides a good environment for self-motivated team members with strong analytical skills.

As we move forward with ReThinkNYC, our team is working to express the proposal in multiple media formats. Here is a list of the skills and experience we are looking for:

  • 2 - 4 years of architectural work experience preferred 
  • B.Arch., M.Arch., or equivalent
  • Fluency in AutoCAD, Adobe CC (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop),
  • Knowledge of Adobe After Effects and/or GIS preferred
  • Interest in and technical understanding of urban transit systems (rail, bus, metro, etc.)
  • Strong graphic sensibility with regards to the visualization of data, maps, and diagrams
  • Excellent interpersonal, written, and verbal communication skills
  • Ability to prioritize and multi-task

If you think ReThink Studio is a good fit for you and you have the skills to contribute, please email us your resume with a cover letter to  It would be very helpful if you could also write about why you'd like to join the ReThinkNYC production team. To do this, it would be helpful to have a fairly complete understanding of the ReThinkNYC plan.

The position is full time and the salary will be commensurate with your skills and experience. More information on the position is available at
