Daisy Ames is the founding principal of Studio Ames, an architectural design office based in New York City. The work of the office focuses on the intersection of art and architecture, the dialogue between historical and contemporary elements, and investigates how perception can inform new visual and physical experiences. Ames’ research focuses on the spatial implications of social, economic, and political shifts within cities, and how these intersecting forces affect contemporary living models. Her drawings and writings have been featured in exhibitions and publications worldwide. Ames received her Bachelor of Arts in Cultural Anthropology, and the History of Art and Architecture from Brown University, and received her Master of Architecture from Yale School of Architecture. She has previously taught studios and seminars at Rice School of Architecture, Yale School of Architecture, and Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation.
