Daniel Fagerberg is the head architect and director of Urban Future Organization, -Stockholm branch. UFO is a green global architecture and research collective with offices in ten major cities and its headquarters located in Hong Kong.
Daniel began his training in Newcastle, Australia, and completed his studies 2002 at the Architectural Association in London, UK. Next to architecture, Daniel has been involved in a number of cross fertilization projects within IT and marketing, where social and infrastructural issues have informed the development of innovative business concepts. He has also worked extensively within animation, video and web. Daniel has lectured and taught studios, touching the zone between architecture, technology and new media at universities in Sweden, UK, Australia, Norway and Chile. In 2012-2013 Daniel held the visiting professor position, -Hyde Chair of Excellence, at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln USA. Former Hyde Chairs include Peter Cook, Wolf Prix and Michael Sorkin amongst others.
Daniel is a firm believer in applied architecture, meaning his offices spend just as much time on the factory floor as on site, in the forest or in front of the screen. He focuses on sustainable building with a special interest in cross laminated timber and efficient industrial production and mass customization. He strives to be engaged in the full building process, which has led to a series of new ventures within engineering, software development and property development.
To achieve his personal goals which require a development of the timber industry through the use of parametric design tools and BIM. Daniel has found a new market in the translation of the architects CAD environment into CAM and digital fabrication of timber building components. In 2003, Daniel began developing software, which in 2009 led to the formation of his company PAQAM (pack-to-cam). This resulted in further demand for product development and services, and in 2010 he founded Strombro Building Workshop(engineering). Through the work with Paqam and Strombro, his companies have taken a pole position as a specialized consultancy firm in the emerging industrialization of timber building in Scandinavia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and since 2012 into USA and Canada.
Daniel frequently lectures at fairs, seminars and councils in Sweden, Norway, US and the UK, occasionally in south east Asia, promoting timber building design and industrialization, for a sustainable built environments.
