el dorado is an equal opportunity employer that believes a dynamic creative community is enriched by diversity and inclusion. el dorado does not discriminate in employment opportunities or practices on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions), marital status, national origin, ancestry, age, disability, family care status, protected veteran status, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, citizenship status, genetic information or any other characteristic protected by applicable law or humanist worldview.

About el dorado
Established in 1996, el dorado is an architecture, urban design, curatorial, education and fabrication practice located approximately in Kansas, Missouri. In the beginning, as equal parts art gallery, fabrication shop and design studio, we were known for fingerless gloves and raffish outbursts that helped jumpstart Kansas City’s emergent culture. Today, we work purposefully across scales and contexts, from city blocks to exhibitions, between critical ideas and our intangible, spiritual attachment to place. el dorado’s three partners and 28 staff — including 11 architects, a university professor, curators, industrial designers and certified welders — chase big ideas with a common touch.

Enlivening contradictions are coded within el dorado: yes, there’s the mythical city of gold, but we’re also named after a gas guzzler. Our core belief — design excellence is possible anywhere, for anyone — has us saying Hell Yes! to unexpected opportunities as often as, No!, we ain’t going down that dark road. We are equally as eager to upend industrial typologies as we are for ascendant collaborations with artists, bringing design integrity to low cost housing or starting critical design dialogues in rural America. Our Kansas City roots grant intimate knowledge of the strange magnetism that bridges flyover status with hard-earned belief in the possibilities of this place.

The mythologies and rigor of the Midwest flow through our practice, and we see the shared ethic between the astronaut’s moonshot and a farmer’s buckshot. el dorado seeks opportunities for everyday alchemy and radical normalcy throughout our polarized landscape. Our work creates common ground in the middle of everywhere.
