Dan Sakai

AIA, LEED AP / Associate, Project Architect

Dan brings to WRNS a strong breadth of experience across project scales and typologies as well as a passion for urbanism, public space, tectonics, and technology. Dan has lead the design of mixed-use developments spanning a dozen city blocks and resolved façade systems down to the rivets. He sees weaving together the roles of generalist and specialist as one of the foundational challenges of architecture.

The High Line, the Broad Museum, and the Nassau Coliseum are some highlights of Dan’s diverse portfolio of projects including public parks, hospitals, office buildings, and mixed-use developments in the US and overseas. While vastly different in size and program, Dan seeks to bring to each project an appropriate calibration of scale, sustainable interfaces, site-specific solutions, and technical excellence.

Originally from the Bay Area, Dan received his Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from UC Berkeley. Drawn to dense, vivid, urban landscapes, he moved to New York City where he earned a Masters of Architecture from Columbia University. He focused his research on technology, urbanism, and culture. Prior to joining WRNS Studio in New York, Dan worked with Diller Scofidio + Renfro, SHoP Construction, and NBBJ.
