Daniel Inocente is an American Designer based in New York City, New York working as a Senior Designer with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. His work revolves around developing design methodologies which leverage computational techniques for performance driven design, enclosure systems, discrete geometrical optimization and interdisciplinary research. His primary interests in the future of architecture & design stem from having worked directly with some of the most innovative teams on producing unique processes for creative and complex architectural systems. His cumulative professional experience includes working with Gehry Partners LLP, NASA, Gehry Technologies, HKS LINE and is now charged with leading computational design efforts at SOM, New York. An integral part of introducing unconventional approaches to architectural design and problem solving is his passion for discovering connections between technology, industry and research.
