Architect-US, the employment platform for architects in the United States

The employment platform Architect-US puts architects and engineers anywhere in the world in contact with companies based in the United States. The program facilitates the incorporation into the North American labor market, finding participant´s job in the USA, and processing the arrival of the participant in just 30 days. The service includes the J1 visa, medical insurance, and official documentation, within the legal framework of the U.S. Government Exchange J-1 Visitor.

With the mission of improving the professional perspectives of young talents trapped by the crisis that struck the profession in the period 2008-2014, Architect-US was established by Patricia García, a graduate of the Madrid School of Architecture (UPM-ETSAM), during her 2016 stint at the firm HOK in New York. It now boasts a community of over 5,000 architects and engineers from 110 countries and a network of 200 American practices. OMA, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, SOM, Morphosis, and SHoP are some of the offices working within the program, and the locations include New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Miami, and Portland. Read write-ups by Architect-US participants.

From the very start Architect-US has had the support of institutions like the American Institute of Architects, the Spain-US Chamber of Commerce, the Spanish Education Ministry's SEPIE Program, the Immigration and Emigration Ministry's Youth Program, and the Cultural Affairs department of the Spanish Embassy in Washington, D.C. It collaborates with several university entities in Spain (ETSAM, CEU, UE School of Architecture, UFV, ETSAB, etc.) and abroad (Architectural Association School of Architecture, Moscow Architectural Institute, Politecnico di Milano, Bartlett School, TU Delft, Chandigarh College of Architecture, ETH Zurich...).

With the aim of strengthening alliances with key organizations in the field of Architecture, Architect-US will make possible the expansion of the Arquia Foundation Scholarship into the United States, for the realization of professional internships for young Architects of Spain and Portugal by making available two scholarship positions at two industry-renowned American architecture studios.
