As a Senior Architectural Designer at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), Daniel Inocente is focused on design innovation through the building sciences and computational architecture, generating new methodologies to impact design integration. He works on projects across sectors which include skyscrapers, transportation, aviation, government, cultural, science, education, and space architecture. Projects he has worked on at SOM include Guiyang World Trade Center, Zhongtian Tower, Zhuhai Tower, and others. As an expert in digital design, he integrates technology and interdisciplinary research into projects leveraging computational and scientific methods. He simultaneously supports formulating building typology needs to develop integrated technology platforms which range from high precision digital modeling to environmental simulation and building information systems.
He has also worked to establish and advance private-public partnerships with government and academia for future exploration initiatives. By working with agencies that include ESA and academia at MIT, his goal is to expand the role of the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry through international and cross-sectoral collaboration, nurturing cross-disciplinary partnerships. His work in Space Architecture research has been exhibited, presented and published at the 70th International Astronautical Congress (IAC), AIAA Year in Review, IEEE, Architect Magazine, American Society of Civil Engineers, New Scientist Live, ISDC, MIT’s Beyond the Cradle, ESA 541, Space Resources Workshop and more.
Before SOM, Inocente worked for Frank Gehry Partners, Gehry Technologies, NASA and HKS | LINE working on seminal projects such as the Guggenheim Museum Abu Dhabi and Battersea Development. Inocente is a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) accredited professional under the U.S. Green Building Council, Assoc. member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and the Space Architecture Technical Committee (S ATC).
