Are you a design enthusiast with a passion for turning creative concepts into reality? Join us as an Architecture Intern, where you'll embark on a thrilling adventure through the diverse realms of architecture, from Planning to Design and beyond. At DesignGroup, we are dedicated to providing an internship experience that empowers students to actively contribute to the design process while benefiting from personalized mentorship by seasoned design professionals. Alongside engaging project work, we foster continuous learning through enriching experiences such as site tours, studio crawls, and office-wide lunch and learn sessions.

We are seeking ideal candidates currently enrolled in an accredited U.S. based higher education program, with plans to return to school in the Fall. Graduating students concluding their studies in the Spring, who won't be returning to school, are also encouraged to apply.

Each piece should tell a compelling story, incorporating essential process information such as models, sketches, and diagrams that elucidate your design thinking. We value a comprehensive view, so encompass the entire design journey, from initial phases to the final imagery. In cases of collaborative efforts, acknowledge primary team members, and emphasize your specific contributions to the work and the overall process.
