Dan Fields studied Architecture at the University of Texas at Austin. Prior to joining TTD, Dan worked for seven years at KRDB designing, building and developing financially accessible high design projects.
While at KRDB Dan helped develop SOL, a net-zero sustainable community consisting of 40 homes. He aided in the concept, design, and development of MA, an affordable modular housing system which leverages potential arrangements with a limited kit of parts. Meanwhile he worked as a project designer and manager for the Frick Residence, Gates Residence, Blanco River House, and Heywood Hotel.
During this time Dan had the opportunity to collaborate with other creative firms, working with Studio D+Form on 120 11th Avenue, and Finn Design Build on the Bouldon Creek Ranch.
Dan comes from El Paso Texas where he was raised in a Mexican-American household. His father’s hobby of collecting automobiles sparked Dan’s interest in design at an early age. Similarly his Mexican roots compelled him to travel through Central and South America, studying contemporary Latin-American urbanism and Pre-Columbian ruins.
