Danny Forster & Architecture, a multi-faceted architecture firm based in New York City, is seeking a Project Designer to join our office. We’ve built a global reputation through our experienced yet inventive architectural, interior, and urban design; branding and corporate storytelling; filmmaking and production; and thought leadership in the realm of modular building. Our current projects include a Manhattan AC by Marriott that will be the tallest modular hotel in the world; a tower on Market Street in San Francisco; a 13-building resort development for the Shinnecock Indian Nation; and a long-term initiative (in partnership with Berkshire Hathaway) to transform the field of modular construction and move the industry forward. We are equally committed to the residential side of our practice, with several extensive high-end projects underway in New York City.

We are looking for a project designer who brings a strong portfolio and a strong work ethic; who wants to learn but also has much to contribute; who balances self-motivation with teamwork. One technical note: we are a 100% Revit operation; please do not apply if Revit is not second-nature to you.
