Canopy is an award-winning socially- and environmentally driven architecture firm located in downtown Chicago. We believe that good design is essential to the human experience and the environment. As architects and planners, we design for neighborhoods, families, and for- and non-profit businesses including housing agencies throughout the region. Please see our website for additional information.


We are seeking a talented, passionate individual to join our growing practice of eleven. The candidate should have excellent communication, design, and technical skills as well as experience in multi-family residential and other commercial projects. Responsibilities will include overall project management and preparation of deliverables from design through construction including programming, code/zoning, design research, bidding, permitting, and construction document coordination.

Ability to lead teams in design and technical phases as well as client and consultant coordination is essential to this position.

The position requires overall skill and knowledge in design, drawing documentation, and construction administration including zoning and code studies, schematic design, design development, permitting, construction documents and construction administration (8-10 years of experience minimum). Keen knowledge of local construction methodologies, engineering systems, specifications, and accessibility codes is highly preferred.
