LATENT Productions is an innovative architecture and development firm with distinguished building design and research capacities. We are a design practice operating at the nexus of architecture, real estate, and inquiry, where rigorous experimentation and precise strategies facilitate critically inventive solutions within diverse contemporary projects. 

Design is directed by an architect / associate professor with 18 years’ experience on the Columbia GSAPP studio faculty, and development is directed by an architect / entrepreneur with 20 years’ experience in construction and finance.  We are currently seeking an intelligent designer with meticulous research and analytic capabilities, coupled with a sophisticated, professional graphic sensibility. Design and research responsibilities will be vast and diverse, reflecting the complexity and scales of our practice.

Current projects include Greylock WORKS - the revitalization of a 240,000 SF former cotton-spinning mill, new construction of multi- and single-family housing, innovative alternatives for urban burial, and event production as a catalyst for the maker economy.

  • A mind that is principled, but open to change
  • A character that is self-motivated, focused, confident, collaborative, respectful, and reliable
  • A passion for design and an appreciation for a balance of efficiency and effectiveness within non-linear thought processing
  • Resourcefulness, persistence, and focus to research relevant data, edit pertinent information, analyze comparative results, and clearly present - both visually and orally - intelligent conclusions
  • Capacity to think ahead, and work well under pressure with real deadlines and serious responsibilities
  • Excellent communication and organizational skills, strong visual presentation skills and refined graphic talent
  • Practical knowledge related to scale, material, and space
  • Proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite, Rhino and/or 3D Studio Max, CAD, IG and FB. Experience with Wordpress, and Eventbrite a plus.  We are a predominately Mac-based office.  Applicants should indicate VectorWorks aptitude, and willingness to acquire proficiency.

  • Consistently high standards in everything that LATENT engages
  • A robust relationship with academic, research, and design pedagogy
  • Benefit package and salary commensurate with evident capacity
