Daryl Toy


Daryl is a Designer at WRNS Studio. With an interest in architecture's curatorial and material aspects, she often focuses on the interaction between design and one's personal experience of the environment. Her thesis, Dis[place]ed Boundaries explored how globalization and climate change have impacted borders and immigration. The investigation revealed the expanding liminality of spatial borders as well as cultural questions of origin, immigration, displacement, and naturalization. 

In her free time, she enjoys creative pursuits, using jewelry-making as a vehicle to explore materiality, texture, light, and space. She also loves to cook, citing food as a universal and culturally specific language not unlike architecture or dance. A frequent traveler, she's studied abroad in Torino and Rome and has spent time in Chile and Peru. Daryl holds a Bachelor's Degree in Architecture from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
