SKEW Collaborative is an architecture and research practice that started in 2006 in Shanghai, before expanding to Hong Kong and Singapore. The first conception of the practice began in New York City in 2000, vis-a-vis SKEW's inaugural exhibition at the Substation Gallery in Singapore.

SKEW Collaborative and Pianjian are looking to hire dynamic and creative designers with critical thinking skills in the Shanghai and Singapore offices. The design team is cosmopolitan in outlook, with an emphasis not only on design, but also on discourse, theory, and engagement with architecture and urbanism in expanded fields. Applicants should be skilled in modelling software, CAD, and Adobe. Our team is involved in all levels of design and construction, and welcome candidates that are able to communicate through drawing and verbal skills. [+]
