The Urban Design Division at the Department of City Planning (DCP) is growing! Bring your design expertise and skills to help shape a city that is designed and built to contribute to the quality life and well-being of all New Yorkers in every neighborhood!
Urban design focuses on how the elements of the public realm can be built and arranged to create a positive experience for everyone. Everything from the shape of buildings to the location of benches on sidewalks are important urban design elements. DCP’s Urban Designers help shape regulations and provide guidance so that new buildings or public spaces contribute positively to their surrounding communities.
The Urban Design Office is seeking an urban designer with a proven track record of professional
achievement, strong visualization, design and communication skills to join the team. The ideal candidate will be a curious and enthusiastic learner, an artful problem-solver, a critical and engaged user of design technology, and possess a positive attitude toward interdisciplinary work and community service.
