Architecture Plus Information
A+I is an award-winning architecture firm that prides itself in doing inspiring work with inspiring people. Our 70-person firm is an ideal fit for seasoned professionals looking to engage with projects across the full process, from pre-design through construction, in a bright, supportive setting. We nurture an open office culture that prioritizes a healthy work-life balance, careful mentorship toward professional growth, and deep collaboration across a wide array of talents and disciplines.
DESIGN: We believe the best architecture comes through information. We’re not formalists. We believe program guides design, but great design transcends program. We work at a broad variety of scales, from the object to the landscape, preferably in the same project. We think and re-think until the unexpected becomes obvious.
BUILD: We engage in discourse through making. We build. We are uninterested in theory unless it serves to improve the built work. We embrace the practicalities of our profession: schedule, budget, gravity, clients. Real limitations challenge us to be smarter, sharper, better. We iterate through building.
TEAM: We embrace the richness of difference. We put our heads together and believe design should be passed around not down. We seek trans-formative projects for people transforming the world. We find fulfilling our clients’ needs fulfilling. Our work is stronger because of multiple points of view.
