We have architectural practices in the UK, Europe, the Americas, Australasia and East Asia and we are growing.    

We are looking for people who would like to join our community of Architects in a mission to Shape a Better World. We continue to design buildings that are simple, purposeful, efficient and beautiful, that are technologically advanced and sensitive to environmental and human needs in line with Ove Arup's vision for ‘Total Architecture'.  Our projects span various sectors, including transport, sport, science and industry, commercial buildings, and social infrastructure and we work closely with Arup's unparalleled range of engineers and specialists to create the most beneficial outcome for our clients, for society and for the planet.
