Kevin Daly Architects is a practice rooted in the belief that architecture has the power to transform the everyday built environment. Since establishing the firm in 1991 as Daly Genik Architects and now as Kevin Daly Architects, Kevin Daly has guided a design process that upholds the practical magic of architecture –an alchemy of craft, materials, and form. Buttressed by project-directed research, the work of Kevin Daly Architects interweaves innovation in technology and fabrication, sustainability and urbanism, livability and economy. The firm’s award-winning portfolio includes environmentally and socially responsive educational, residential, and institutional projects ranging in scale from single-room artist workspaces to campus master planning.
Kevin Daly Architects is particularly recognized for reclaiming and transforming sites characteristic of the urban fabric, turning generic background buildings into models of community identity. The practice has been recognized with over thirty AIA awards, the Rudy Bruner Foundation’s Gold Medal for Urban Excellence, and the AIA/LA’s Firm of the Year Award. The practice’s body of work has been featured in numerous publications and web sites including The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Domus, A + U, Newsweek, Time, Metropolis, Architect, Architectural Record, Fast Company, T Magazine, and Azure.
