OTO Group offers a mentorship program for anyone wanting to further their career or looking to learn more about our style of practice.
Successful applicants will be mentored by a member of staff and guided through our way of thinking on a design research project in our competitions team.
The competitions team is involved in a range of projects from housing to cultural spaces.
Our current stream of research that you may be involved with are:
-'Un-finished cities- an exploration of the urban fraying of Auckland'
-mixed use community spaces and surf lifesaving club proposal
-bat housing and study facility
We are looking for people who are able to question their environment and are excited to challenge designs with critical thinking and embodiment.
Our mentorship is framed around continuing education and teaching valuable skills for any architectural practice. This will involve site analysis, sketching techniques, model making, BIM through the entire design process and design presentation techniques including diagrams, videos and book making. Emphasis is on passion and inspiration not technical know-how, we can teach you the skills but we can't teach you how to feel.
Don't feel you've got much or any experience? No worries, our team want to guide you through your learning experience.
Please fill in the submission form and our team will get back to you as soon as we are able. We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you to our team.
