Based in Los Angeles and New York, kdA is an architectural firm and design studio renowned for its extensive portfolio of residential, civic, and institutional facilities. These projects consistently advance award-winning contemporary design in everyday life. Established in 1990, the practice has a longstanding commitment to driving building technology downstream, bringing high expectations and exceptional design to modest building programs through an unwavering belief in the transformative capacity of good design at every scale.

Over his thirty-four-year career, Kevin Daly has guided an architectural practice that is both national and intensely local, embracing the practical magic of architecture – an alchemy of craft, material sensibility, and form.

Bolstered by abundant research and a design process centered on physical models and mockups, he has realized the implementation of advanced, unconventional building technology in public projects throughout the state and the country, ranging from affordable housing and public schools to university buildings, workplaces, and single family residences.

Daly’s critical practice is nationally recognized and engages the profession as well as the local community. He has served on numerous awards juries, and his projects have won over 100 design awards, including over 30 national awards, as well as the inaugural AIA/LA Firm of the Year Award. He has held distinguished university chairs at Berkeley and Michigan, currently serves on the Rice University Architecture School’s William Ward Watkin Council, and is a faculty member at UCLA.

kdA is licensed to practice architecture in California, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, New York, Texas, and Washington.
