Who are we?

Supernature Labs is a regenerative design and technology organization committed to reinventing the existing structures of the built environment, and stopping urban sprawl as we know it.

Founded by Dror Benshetrit, Supernature Labs is a global ecosystem
of designers, architects, urbanists, city futurists, engineers, neuroscientists, strategists, technologists and activists addressing the need for regenerative urban communities.

We recognize the tremendous amount of resources and wealth being invested to enable billions of people to live in an environment that will kill us all. As both a call to action and an organization, our mission is to shift Urban Planning as we know it towards “Bioplanning", a more efficient, healthier and harmonious engagement between the natural and built world.

We are developing a holistic, practical framework to design like nature, and with nature, to measurably improve the wellbeing of all life.

Together we are working to facilitate the transition from Sustainability to Ecological Harmony and designing innovative solutions for urban planning, building typologies, material use, and regenerative construction methods that deliver holistic, ecological, and scalable urban experiences, allowing communities, economies, and ecosystems to grow in support of each other.

What is the role?

In this new role you will be an early member of our team and support the planning, design and development of our urban projects that aim to radically rethink how cities are built.

Our work centers on planning, designing, and building Supercell communities around the world.
The Supercell is a modular, biophilic housing and mixed use neighborhood solution designed to merge structure and infrastructure and support healthy, equitable, and regenerative communities.

You will be joining a team of architects, designers, and technologists dedicated to sparking massive change in the AEC industry by advancing regenerative construction through cutting edge technologies and sustainability practices.

This is a project manager / designer role with a path to grow, likely a great fit for someone with 5-8 years of professional experience in urban design and planning. You will be working closely with the Design Director.  

As an Urban Planner/Designer, you will be responsible for:

  • Contributing to the urban planning and design strategy and development for Supercell communities around the world.
  • Contributing to the development of urban scale 3D models for multiple unique Supercell projects.
  • Working in conjunction with cutting edge computational and generative design workflows to develop and encode our urban designs and Bioplanning approach into a comprehensive planning framework.
  • Developing urban masterplan concepts that integrate regenerative building typologies and green infrastructure systems.
  • Developing documentation sets for multiple projects (drawings, renderings, diagrams).
  • Researching innovative infrastructure systems, sustainable technologies, and regenerative urban strategies and integrating them into masterplan concepts. 

Must Have:

  • Professional degree (Bachelor’s or Master’s) in Urban Planning / Design or related field.
  • 5-8 years’ experience in urban planning / design working on masterplanning projects.
  • Excellent knowledge of the AEC industry and standard planning and design processes. 
  • Excellent knowledge of urban planning first principles, codes and policy.
  • Excellent understanding of sustainability principles and technologies.
  • Superb graphic, verbal, and written communication skills.
  • Excellent design software proficiency - primarily Rhino 3D and Grasshopper. 
  • Proficient with Adobe Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign).
  • Experience with GIS software.
  • Great time management skills, and ability to work well independently. 
  • Able to adapt quickly to changing day-to-day design needs. 
  • Eager to work in a fast-paced startup environment.
  • Passionate about sustainability and the future of cities.  

Nice to Haves:

  • Experience with Grasshopper and computational design. 
  • Unity experience is a plus.
