Kevin Daly Architects, Los Angeles, CA, US, Architectural Designer

While working in KDA, for each project, I was responsible for different phases such as conceptual design, design development, building simulation, site visits, and meeting with clients. In addition, I got more experienced in zoning, building codes, professional physical model making and photography, graphical presentation, quick and accurate 2D and 3D drawing, and façade parametric design and detailing. UCLA’s Mo Ostin Basketball Center which is now in construction phase, and Berkeley Global Campus (recognized in AIA and “LA next LA”) are among the projects that I collaborated in KDA.
