DANIEL PROST Univ.Ass. Mag.arch.
is an Austrian born architect and designer based in Vienna. He is also an assistant at the University of Applied Arts Vienna in the DDPLAB. He received his architectural education in the studios of Wolf D. Prix and Hani Rashid at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. Right after graduation in 2014 he got the opportunity as a freelance architect to move to Shanghai to construct his first project. After that a number of hospitality and office projects in partnership with architectural or design offices in Shanghai and Hong Kong followed. In 2016 he joined Studio Schwitalla in Berlin, to work on more experimental projects at the intersection of architecture, urban design and socially valuable projects. Since 2018 he is a partner at Some Place Studio, an architecture and design studio located in New York City and Vienna. Some Place Studio is an architectural design studio interested in the production of physical and virtual space. The practice is defined by an expansive interest in contemporary issues through the lens of architectural discourse and technology. Specifically they are invested in questions of sustainability and equity, seeking collaboration, flexibility and diversity in their work, their partners and clients. Daniel gained his first digital production experience already during his education, while working as a rapid prototyping assistant at Studio Rashid for 3 years and became the the latest member of the DDPLAB in 2018.
