Daniel Abad is a recent graduate from the University of Waterloo School of Architecture Master's program. Daniel's recent work investigates the architecture produced by the Mexican state in the mid-twentieth century, a period defined by national identity, and social reform. He unravels the promises embodied in the built form, and documents their subsequent betrayal. He is a founding co-editor of galt publication, and co-directed the BRIDGE Centre for Architecture and Design, projects that link Cambridge's local and architecture communities. He has practiced with architectural firms in Toronto, Mexico City, Barcelona, and Paris.
