As Design Director at LPA, Daniel Moskop believes design should reflect an inclusive, collaborative approach between all project stakeholders and design team members. He commits himself to identify key concepts at the onset of a project to determine the best decisions throughout.
Daniel represents the LPA brand, culture and business in all aspects of his work. With a keen eye on strategic development, he combines an understanding of regional and market factors with firm operational goals and targets. He asserts that great designs are achieved when the team has clear project goals established by listening, discovering opportunities and identifying constraints.
With more than 15 years of experience, Daniel leads project teams and consultants on programming, scope assessment and all phases of project design. His skills include balancing project budgets and programs and leveraging new technologies to help visualize projects.
Originally from the rural environment of eastern North Carolina, Daniel spent most of his time outdoors, building forts and tree houses. As a child, his parents worked in Europe for extended periods of time, giving Daniel the opportunity to wander the dense urban spaces of the old cities. Aware of the juxtaposition between where he lived and these modern-yet-ancient cities, Daniel gained a curiosity about how the qualities of a space can shape the quality of life. He received his Bachelor of Architecture and Environmental Design from North Carolina State University. While a student there, he received the Architecture Faculty Award for Design Achievement. He is a member of the AIA, LEED and NCARB accredited, and is a guest lecturer at the University of California San Diego’s Urban Studies and Planning Program.
