Program Background
Architecture for Humanity loves looking at beautiful buildings, so we decided to preserve each of our own designs through the efforts of the Architecture for Humanity Model Making Program. This year we have the opportunity to showcase two of our projects at the Milan Design Week. To make this happen, we are seeking two expert model makers who can pull this extraordinary feat off in the next month.

An enthusiastic and highly independent worker with an interest in good design is ideal, and a passion for humanitarian design is a plus. We are unable to offer financial compensation, but we will reimburse transportation costs within the Bay Area to and from our headquarter in San Francisco. What we can offer is the prestige of showing your work at a highly regarded international design fair.


  • Work independently to produce one project model from the Enel Empowerment Program in less than a month
  • Prepare scale plans from CAD files
  • Plan, budget, and acquire model materials
  • Additional skills required (Please only apply if you meet all requirements)

    • Self-directed with consistent follow-through
    • Flexible, agile and ability to learn quickly

    1 month and/or 1 model (full-time, unless you are super fast)

    To Apply
