Dan Ciolino is an award winning designer, Registered Architect, and LEED Accredited Professional with a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Syracuse University. He currently is working for KGD Architecture based out of Arlington, VA. Earlier this year he moved from Washington DC to Austin, TX and has been working remotely for KGD; but now is looking for the right fit in Austin. Dan won an AIA award for his design work on the Riyadh Metro Project. This was an individual award for his design and leadership on the project.
Dan believes in an architecture that carefully considers site, material, and culture. His goal is to spread thoughtful, modern design via architecture. He is very passionate about the build environment and loves architecture. Dan has experience with office, courthouse, police, prison, and transportation architecture; and most recently residential architecture. He also has experience with all phases of the architectural process: from planning and conceptual design to construction administration. Over the past few years Dan has been a leader in his offices. He led teams as a designer as well as a project architect. Dan has very strong design skills and a comprehensive knowledge of BIM. The value he places on data integrated design has led him to computational design, which he sees as being important for architecture's future.
