Dan Briker is an architect and a teacher. His architecture practice, dbdbdb, engages in a variety of project types, with an interest in spatial narrative, sequence, and tactility.

Prior to establishing dbdbdb, Dan practiced at LGA Architectural Partners, working on a range of institutional, residential, non-profit, and mixed-use projects, including the Laurentian School of Architecture in Sudbury, and the Bathurst Street Center for Social Innovation. His background in information graphics, data visualization, and experiential design are highlighted by professional experiences at Pylon Design and Bruce Mau Design, including work on Frank Gehry’s Biodiversity Museum in Panama.

Dan’s research interests around the issues of authenticity, identity, and authorship in architecture have been highlighted by several publications and lecture invitations, as well as a solo installation at the Art Gallery of Alberta, titled “West Edmonton Mall and the Subconscious Space of the City” (2009).

Dan has been teaching design since 2009, and joined the Daniels Faculty in 2015.
