Interactive Design Architects / Chicago, IL / Website


Interactive Design Architects (IDEA) was founded in 1992. IDEA is small by design, retaining a close-knit collaborative environment that allows for inclusive decision making. We believe in the value of cultivating architects to learn and evolve as whole into well-rounded professionals capable of many roles within the field. We believe in a healthy office environment, with respect for the individual, transparency in decision making, and maintenance of a good Work/Life balance.

Our portfolio includes projects for the University of Illinois, University of Chicago, Lincoln Park Zoo and the General Services Administration and features collaborations such as The Modern Wing at the Art Institute of Chicago with Renzo Piano Building Workshop and our on-going work as Associate Architect to Tod Williams | Billie Tsien Architects for The Obama Presidential Center. We are certified as a Minority-owned and Woman-owned Business Enterprise.

We are looking for a new team member that possesses the flexibility to contribute to various projects in all phases including design, production, coordination, detailing, presentations, and renderings. The ideal candidate will be adaptable, cooperative, and able to integrate into our team. Of equal importance is a candidate’s appreciation for the firm’s familial culture and their interest in a working environment that seeks to balance individual integrity and initiative with supportive team dynamics and collaboration.
