Daniel Wu


Senior Associate

“Architecture serves as the unspoken choreographer of our daily lives, providing the backdrop for our everyday experiences.”

Growing up in a family of architects and engineers, Daniel was introduced to the art of technical drawing at a young age. Watching his dad create intricate blueprints with basic tools like a T-square, compass, and a Rotring pen sparked Daniel’s love for drawing and geometry. His journey to find his true passion took him around the world, as he immersed himself in different countries and cultures. During this adventure, he explored various aspects of the AEC industry, including architecture, urban planning, and construction management. These experiences deepened his love for architecture, ultimately guiding him toward a career in this exciting field.

After extensive training and internships, Daniel began his professional career in 2011. As a Registered Architect in Illinois, he has contributed to a diverse portfolio of construction projects, including mixed-use developments, senior living, hospitality, and K-12 schools. As a project architect, he engages in all project phases, from translating client visions to practical design, managing construction documents, communicating with stakeholders, ensuring regulatory compliance, and overseeing construction execution as it aligns with client expectations.
