Daniele Profeta is an Italian architect and designer. He is currently Assistant Professor at Syracuse University School of Architecture.
He holds a Master degree in Architecture with Honors from KTH School of Architecture in Stockholm, and a Master of Architecture from Princeton University.
In the past Daniele has worked in internationally renowned architecture offices, ranging from experimental design practices such as Mark Foster Gage Architects in New York and P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S in Los Angeles, to larger firms such as Studio Fuksas in Rome.
While in Los Angeles, Daniele had the opportunity to pursue his own research interests in material performances as an Assisting Teacher for the ‘Material Lab’ Seminar at SCI-Arc where, working with students, he developed a set of computational techniques to control and optimize the fabrication of complex geometries. This led to a series of workshops that he was invited to teach at UCLA on ‘Coding and Procedural Design’.
His current research explores the potential of digital mapping as a practice of world-building, one that allows to collapse heterogeneous forms of information to develop a thicker understanding of the contemporary architectural discourse. Daniele is currently collaborating with Liam Young on the movie ‘Where the City can’t See’, as well as developing his practice Alam/Profeta with his partner Maya Alam.
