DAO is a contemporary architecture and design-build company based in Sudbury, Canada. Our architecture office works on a diverse range of projects. We are committed to comprehensive problem solving and we strive for meaningful design rooted in context. We use the latest technological tools in combination with enduring cultural strategies to support a healthy balance among our society, city and environment. To reach this goal, we merge the skills and enthusiasm of our architectural team with the aspirations and experience of our clients.
We also have an affiliated company Danielson Associates Office Inc. for R&D and commercialization activity. We innovate using new, unfamiliar approaches and we deepen our project results by seeing our work through to production as part of our architectural process. Our research, development and commercialization work takes place with a diverse team of specialists in other fields to suit the specific needs of the innovative work. Currently, occupational therapy, oceanography and mining engineering have become integral to our internal activity.
Patrick completed a Bachelor of Biomedical Science in Sudbury prior to completing a Master of Architecture at the University of British Columbia.

Patrick has been the recipient of several awards, including those from the government, private sector, and academia. He has previously taught as a Sessional Instructor at the McEwen School of Architecture and is currently a registered architect in both British Columbia and Ontario as well as a member of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada.
