Open Positions | Historical Concepts

My name is Aaron Daily and I am a Principal at Historical Concepts and a 1995 KSU Architecture graduate.  It is an exciting time to be in the design profession and you will likely have multiple employment options to consider. With that said, please allow me to take this opportunity to share with you some information that we like to think makes Historical Concepts unique:  

  • As you will see when you visit our website, we are a traditional architecture and planning firm headquartered in Atlanta with a growing office in New York.

  • When Jim Strickland founded the firm in 1982, he purposely chose the name “Historical Concepts” over his own to emphasize the design philosophy and body of work.  This vision still guides us today and our designs are shaped by context and precedent, never ego or individualism. 

  • As traditionalists, we are committed to the ideals of classical and vernacular architecture; however, we take pride in being generalists who seek to improve the built environment. Our team members enjoy tremendous variety, collaborating with residential, civic and developer clients on a range of project types, styles, scopes and locations. 

  • Each and every project is a team effort.  A spirit of collaboration is ingrained in our culture and applies to everything we do. This provides opportunities for everyone to contribute to projects in a meaningful way and we believe that good ideas stand in open forum.

  • We have built the firm by hiring recent graduates, investing in their growth and promoting from within.  Newly hired staff members are immersed in one of our small studios, where they work side by side and receive daily mentorship from a Principal who began their career at Historical Concepts as well.  

If you feel that our ideals and place-making services align with your interests then we would welcome the opportunity to talk with you.  Please feel free to reach out to me at the contact information below.

Thank you for your time and we hope to have the pleasure of talking with you soon.

Sincerely and with best regards - Aaron
