Daniel Vasini

Director

As Creative Director of West 8, Daniel Vasini visualizes master plans, urban environments, and large-scale interventions and specializes in transformative placemaking projects. Collaborating with founding partner Adriaan Geuze for over 16 years, Daniel embodies the know-how and working culture of West 8 and leads the North American office. A core interface with clients, Daniel both steers and directs the visioning of the work products and expands company business in both the Americas and in Europe.

Daniel leads and collaborates with top-tier multi-disciplinary teams to address complex challenges and envision solutions that articulate the major urban design issues of our time. He is deeply committed to a project-tailored, wide-reaching, iterative process of design, and is adept at its implementation. He rises to infrastructure and urbanization challenges by creating designs that address sustainability goals, natural resilience, and historic identity.

Daniel graduated with honors and, as a Fulbright Scholar, earned his Master’s Degree in Metropolitan Research & Design from the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) in Los Angeles, California. Sharing his experience of international projects with students, Daniel serves as a visiting critic and lecturer for Harvard Graduate School of Design and Syracuse University, among a few, as well as a panelist, juror, and conferences around the world.
