PIVOT is Hiring a Design Professional!

At PIVOT Architecture, we work in an open and transparent way in teams that are formed for each project. We actively listen to each other and our clients and produce places that are responsive to programmatic requirements, context, and budget. We recognize our responsibility to manage resources thoughtfully and understand that the decisions we make affect the health of our communities and environment. We seek people who understand that implementing these values requires thought, care, and creativity. Our interior designers are at the table on day one, seamlessly blending the perspectives and contributions originating from all facets, inside and out, of each project’s design.

For more information, see our Careers page.


New Faces at PIVOT

PIVOT is welcoming some new faces this summer, all of whom are associated with the University of Oregon’s School of Architecture and Allied Arts.

Sam Slack and Francisco Toledo are recent BARCH graduates and are joining the firm full time. Charlena Kea and Hank Huang are current undergraduates at UO and are summer interns. Clay Neal is our inaugural 2017 PIVOT Architecture Fellow. He is preparing to finish his MARCH degree in the spring of 2018.

To get them oriented, we took them on a tour of some of our projects, which included EWEB’s Roosevelt Operations Center, Howard Elementary School, and Lane Transit District’s Willow Creek facility, which is under construction.
