About Cushing Terrell

We might be old, but we’ve aged gracefully. Back in 1938, founders Cushing and Terrell believed integrating architecture, engineering, and design opened the doors for deepened relationships and enhanced creativity — and that hasn’t changed. Generations of collaborative practice have proven the benefit of working shoulder-to-shoulder to yield broader viewpoints and better design solutions.

But our passion to forever improve is inherent. “The way it’s always been done” isn’t always the best way, which is why we implement programs that challenge us to perform above standards and beyond past successes. As a team, we champion diversity, equity, and integrity in all forms — this means placing people at the center of our practice.

After all, our mission is to invent a better way of living. We find joy in uncovering imaginative solutions for the people who work here, the people we work for, and the planet as a whole. Our broad range of specialized service offerings and global project locations make every day unique, and a love for exploring new frontiers is what keeps the pioneering spirit of our founders alive.


Interiors Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 Austin, TX
“I enjoyed how personable the office was. I felt welcomed and invited into the company immediately., and the working culture is exceptional! There are so many departments within this office, it was helpful to work and collaborate in a fluid environment. I also appreciate the practical experiences I gained by working with my coworkers. Everyone that I worked with gave me real-project design work. Getting to interact with clients and experience project deadlines was helpful in my growth as an aspiring designer, and I have been able to apply these skill sets in my academic work. I am thankful for the exposure I had during my time at CTA. I greatly enjoyed my time there and would definitely recommend CTA's internship program to students.”
