Daisy Ames

Daisy Ames is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia University’s GSAPP, where she teaches architecture studios. Ames is the founding principal of Studio Ames, an architectural design studio based in New York City. The work of the studio focuses on the intersection of art and architecture, and investigates how perception can inform new visual and physical experiences. Ames’ research focuses on the spatial implications of social, economic, and political shifts within cities, and how these intersecting forces affect contemporary living models.

Her drawings and writings have been featured in exhibitions and publications including the Venice Architecture Biennale, World Architecture Festival, Storefront for Art and Architecture, Sir John Soane’s Museum, See/Saw, Scroope, Log, and more. Ames received her Bachelor of Arts in Cultural Anthropology, and the History of Art and Architecture from Brown University, and received her Master of Architecture from Yale School of Architecture. She has previously taught at Rice School of Architecture, Yale School of Architecture, Pratt Institute’s GAUD, and also currently teaches at Cornell AAP NYC.
