Hello, I’m Daniel Davis, I’m a researcher specialising in the technology of the building industry. Recently I moved to New York after completing a PhD on computational design at RMIT University. I now work as a Lead Researcher at WeWork.

This blog has become slightly neglected now that I have a monthly technology column in ARCHITECT Magazine. I still try to at least update this blog with my writing published elsewhere. In the past my writing has appeared in AD, ArchDaily, ENR, Design Reform, and the International Journal of Architectural Computing, as well as books such as ‘Thought Leaders of BIM’ (2014), ‘Designing the Dynamic’ (2013), ‘Scripting the Future’ (2012), and ‘Computational Design Modelling’ (2011).

I originally trained as an architect in New Zealand and I continue to intermittently work on Antoni Gaudí’s Sagrada Família – a role I have occupied for the past six years.
