Daniel joined Merge in 2019. He received his Bachelor of Arts in Architecture at the College of Environmental Design at UC Berkeley and a Master of Architecture from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design.
Influenced by travel abroad studios to both Tokyo and London, his interests and concerns regarding architecture and the city hybridized to form the premise for his Master thesis, ‘Elevate’. The project examined the varying relationships between architectural syntax and existing built contexts, through research of form, typology, and program.
Prior to joining Merge, Daniel worked at firms such as SOM, Woodsbagot, and ELA Architects in San Francisco working on projects ranging from large urban scale developments to smaller residential housing projects.
