BAM is looking for Landscape Architects or Architects interested in working in landscape
BAM是谁？ | Who is BAM?
Ballistic Architecture Machine (BAM) is a multidisciplinary design studio based in Beijing, Shanghai and New York founded by Daniel Gass, Allison Dailey, and Jacob Walker, three close friends and former classmates, nearly expelled from architecture school for creating installation art. BAM’s early interest in installation work lead them to gravitate away from architecture and towards the field of landscape. While the fields of architecture, art, and engineering receive an enormous amount of attention from designers and clients in China, BAM focuses on all the spaces outside of architecture to create public spaces that integrate the IDEA of nature. Founded in 2007 the studio has built projects from ARCHITECTURE to LANDSCAPES and INSTALLATIONS around the world. BAM’s studio has a background in ART and CRAFTSMANSHIP and integrates these skill sets into all phases of the design process.
BAM focuses on the long-term growth of our employees also known as BAMMERS through a career path system to employee ownership within our Hong Kong parent company. A prime example of this is Guan Jingwen, who started as an entry level designer and grew to the first employee to become partner since BAMs founding. Jingwen is now BAMs business director in China and apart from handling the financials she is heavily involved in project management and knows the condition of all BAMs projects, she handles promotional work and first client contact for almost all of BAMs incoming projects.

BAM团队 | BAM Team
BAM has two office locations in China, headquarters in Beijing and location in Shanghai. BAM is 18 – 25 members across both locations however BAM intends to grow. In the past we have maintained a relatively small size however as BAM is now in such extremely high demand we are now expanding. BAM is not a meat mill, or CAD monkey factory, we have very low turnover as people often stay at BAM for many years and learn an extraordinary amount while at BAM. BAMMERS are carefully selected not only for their skills but personality and perceived ability within the BAM community’s group dynamic. Everyone at BAM has an interesting story to tell and the BAM team is a mix of landscape architects, architects and artists with rich international and Chinese backgrounds.

BAM之工作体验 | What is it like @ BAM?
At BAM you will work on a variety of Chinese and international projects at a variety of scales, and everyone has a chance to participate in the entire process of a project from concept to construction. BAM believes that design happens at every stage, not just the concept phase. Designing details is just as valid a time and place to develop ideas and try new things as is a masterplan. In Architecture and Landscape ideas come and go and are tried and tried again. A good idea badly built is just as meaningless as an exquisitely built dumb idea.

外部考察 Outside Office
Design is not just about what you make in the office. You must learn to see and learn from the world around you. Design ideas are everywhere we go if you just know where to look. At BAM there are many opportunities to learn about design outside of the office. Apart from regular site visit to construction sites and group office trips to completed projects, every year BAM takes an international trip which is available to all BAMMERS from interns to partners at no cost to employees. BAMs annual trip is a time to learn and study and expand our horizons and ideas through thoughtful travel.
At BAM there are a variety of ways in which BAMMERS are trained. Apart from BAMs famous “sink or swim” training method, you will be exposed to lectures on various topics as well as seminars about BAM books such as “Landscape Vision” which is our bilingual design manual which helps to create a common ground for communication through language and visual thinking. Not only is Landscape Vision taught at BAM, as details are critical to creating ideas in the physical world, BAMs Library of successful constructed details in the form of a massive bible-like book is an incredible resource for both highly experienced designers as well as those still wet behind the ears. Not only this you will also have chance to meet other world-famous landscape architects, architects and designers who frequently visit BAM for group design reviews or project visits.
BAM为员工准备了丰富多样的培训方式。除了BAM著名的“sink or swim” 方法，你还可以参加各种主题的讲座和关于BAM所著书籍的研讨会。例如，BAM编著的《景观视界》就是一本双语设计手，旨在通过语言和视觉思维建立共同的沟通基础。除了 《景观视界》的培训，细节设计也是BAM项目落成的关键环节。无论对于经验丰富的设计师还是初出茅庐的学生，BAM编撰、归纳的成功施工细节图集都是一种绝佳的资源。除了上述内部培训，你还将有机会接触到世界顶级景观大师、建筑大师和设计师，他们经常来BAM做客与团队一起审阅讨论设计或参观项目现场。
