Daniel Koch


Daniel Koch is an architect and PhD in Architecture. Koch’s main research interests has been complex buildings studied from the point of view of how spatial configuration and commodity distribution work as cultural communication and negotiation. In this process studies have moved through libraries, department stores, and academic environments. He is currently a researcher and teacher at the KTH School of Architecture, giving studio courses in Urban Planning and Design and theory courses in Architecture, at the same time as working as an architect at the co-founded Patchwork Architecture Laboratory.
