Daniel Horowitz is an architect-entrepreneur and an educator. His research focuses on new pedagogical models for architectural education, and new models of practice and project delivery. He is passionate about developing blockchain business applications for the design and construction industries and has an interest in research-based studios without a “physical bias”. He works within an experimental and speculative ideology but remains dedicated to industry applications. His research includes robotics, artificial intelligence, machine vision, digital assemblies, and alternative housing models. He has founded two successful businesses and is currently working on a Blockchain start-up. Early in his career, Daniel worked at Philadelphia-based Venturi Scott Brown and Associates for five years, as a member of a team that designed a new science building at the University of Pennsylvania, a government center in Toulouse, and a resort in Japan. He later formed a design-build firm in Stamford, Connecticut, where he designed and built numerous homes for over 20 years. His most recent projects include a complete renovation of a Park Avenue apartment and a private estate in Westchester County, New York.
