Daniele Profeta is an Italian architect and designer.
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. This allowed him to work on a variety of projects ranging from small-scale installations to international competitions as well as large developments in the Middle East and in Asia.
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’.
A renewed interest in the collaboration of practice and academic environments encouraged Daniele to enroll at Princeton University, in their post-professional degree, where he began to explore architecture as a multi-layered landscape, constructed through the interaction of material things, large environments and social bodies.
Daniele is currently Assistant Professor at Syracuse University School of Architecture and he is developing his practice Alam/Profeta with his partner Maya Alam.
