Daniel Newman is a multidisciplinary professional with a background in architecture, design, and education. His work encom-passes a diverse range of activities, including design practice, artistic endeavors, and critical research, with a primary focus on the convergence of architecture and media. This intersection informs his exploration of the curatorial aspects of spatial identity, particularly as they relate to the experience of living and building community in a mediated urban environment.
Daniel’s practice is based in Philadelphia, where he specializes in the design of exhibition interiors, interactive spaces, and responsive surfaces. He holds a M.Arch from Parsons the New School for Design, complemented by a B.S. in Political Science from Syracuse University. This diverse educational background enriches his approach to architecture, incorporating insights from both design and social sciences.
Daniel’s research focuses on the design and analysis of spaces and networks optimized for transmitting, storing, consuming, and producing media. His investigations also extend to addressing the public’s understanding of telecommunication infra-structures, the impact of observational technology on spatial and identity dynamics, and the transformative role of networks in shaping the representation of urban landscapes, communities, and civic life. Notably, Daniel’s work has been exhibited most recently at Ars Electronica Berlin, ESC Atelier in Rome, Flux Factory NYC, the Esther Klein Gallery at the University City Science Center in Philadelphia, and the Little Berlin Cooperative Exhibition Space.
