Wood is an Adjunct Professor at Princeton University’s School of Architecture.

WORK Architecture Company (WORKac) was founded in 2003 by Amale Andraos and Dan Wood. Based in New York, WORKac strives to develop architectural and urban projects that engage culture and consciousness, nature and artificiality, surrealism and pragmatism. WORKac is involved in projects at all scales, ranging from a master-plan for the new BAM cultural district in Brooklyn, to a single family villa in Inner Mongolia, China. Recent completed projects include the installation ‘Public Farm 1’ at PS1/MoMA and, the new headquarters for Diane von Furstenberg; current work includes the new Kew Gardens Hills Library in Queens, the extension of the Clark Art Institute at Mass MoCA, a new Children’s Museum for the Arts and the first Edible Schoolyard New York City with Alice Waters’ Chez Panisse Foundation.
