Rhino / Grasshopper Jobs in architecture!

OPEN POSITIONS – AVAILABLE IMMEDIATELY

MMA began its lineage with unique, digitally-based collaborations, developed using advanced 3D software. At MMA, our projects commence with investigations of local systems, both natural and synthetic, that are specifically applicable to each site. We strive for intelligent abstractions of these local programmatic, climatic, and biotic conditions to inform the iterative development of digital models, resulting in a holistic and ecologically calibrated design. We are engaged in solo projects and multi-firm collaborations ranging in scale from experimental furniture to urban re-visioning.

We are looking for talented individuals to enrich our architectural practice, and to bring creative energy to our process of iterative design, computation, and 3D modeling.

The following TWO positions are available immediately.
