Adjunct Associate Professor

Daniel A. Vos is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia GSAPP where he has been teaching since 2004. He is a Principal at Heintges Consulting Architects & Engineers, a full-service firm offering state-of-the-art expertise on the design and construction of bespoke building envelopes to building owners and their architects.

Vos is particularly keen on the detailing of façade systems – the art of bringing building components together well, so that the result enhances the architectural design and meets the performance goals for the project. It is a process that brings together his broad interests: fundamentals of building physics, material properties, engineering, economic constraints, production techniques, fabrication methods, and installation means and methods; sustainability and resiliency goals that place architecture in the context of its environment; wellness goals that place building occupants at the center of the design process; and the formal aesthetic goals of modernism and efficiency, tempered by historical and cultural associations of architectural form.

During his professional career, Vos has had the privilege to collaborate with marquee architectural design firms around the world: structural glass facades such as Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall and Julliard School in New York (Diller Scofidio Renfro); demanding museum facade designs at the National Museum of African American History & Culture in Washington DC (Adjaye Associates, et al) and the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens (Leeser Architecture); high-end flagship stores for Burberry, Tiffany, and Nike (with their global design teams, respectively); New York City’s first net-zero public school building in Staten Island (SOM); iconic residential developments such as Reflections and Corals in Singapore (Studio Libeskind); and towers that demarcate cities’ skylines such as 4 World Trade Center (Maki & Associates), 30 Hudson Yards (KPF), and 50 Hudson Yards (Foster & Partners). He particularly appreciates having been part of the team for the historic renovation of the United Nations Headquarters in New York, where Heintges were the Architect of Record for the facades.

Mr. Vos studied architecture in both Paris and New York, is an alumnus of the Columbia GSAPP, and a registered architect. He is regularly invited to speak at international façade conferences, is dedicated to the development of a more diverse and inclusive architectural profession, and an architectural community that engages and supports environmental policies as part of our everyday practice.
