Daniella Calma

New York, USA

Born into a family of artists and architects, Daniella Calma spent her early years as a sponge; absorbing art and design through travels with her family and by wandering through construction sites with her dad. Fueled by this early exposure, her perception of architecture was unconsciously generated purely out of aesthetics. However, after graduating with a Bachelors in Architecture (with honors) from Pratt Institute and immersing herself in the unique social fabric of New York City, she grew invested in the common ground between architecture as an art form and the dialogue it creates within the public realm and the surrounding context. She is currently pursuing a Masters in Architecture at the Yale School of Architecture where she hopes to cultivate her passion in seeking a broadened comprehension of the scope in which the strands of design, evolving concepts of identity, social engagement and contextual catalysts are weaved together.
