The best urban design solutions foster public life through an evolutionary and inclusive approach to city making, neighborhood spaces, and connections. Designing at the urban scale requires a comprehensive and wide-ranging systems approach, be it a masterplan for a new city or district, the revitalization of a neighborhood, or for planning a new mixed-use development.

Ideal candidates have 2-5 years of experience, practice a concept-based approach to design, have a passion for designing for health, good technical skills, excellent graphic communication abilities (hand and digital), a clear commitment to excellence and a high degree of modernist design sensitivity. A degree in Interior Architecture or Interior Design along with software skills including Revit, Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop are required. Lumion is highly desired.

 

At Mithun, our design has purpose—to create positive change in people’s lives. We are an internationally recognized leader in sustainability, combining exemplary design with a focus on building and site performance, human health and social equity. Since the inception of the practice in 1949, Mithun has been recognized with national awards including the AIA Institute Honor Award for Interior Architecture, IIDA Interior Design Competition and Interior Design Magazine Best of Year Finalist. The firm has received six AIA Committee on the Environment Top Ten Awards, is a JUST organization and is ranked among the top firms in the nation by Architect magazine.

 

We embrace justice, equity, diversity and inclusion (JEDI) as key expressions of our mission of Design for Positive Change. We are committed to promoting JEDI both internally and externally, in our firm culture, project work and partnerships. Our goal is not just good intentions but real impact for the people, communities and clients we serve. This is an ongoing process that we approach with an attitude of inquiry and openness.
