Daniela Rojas – SVA MA Design Research

Daniela is a Colombian New York-based design curious. She holds a Bachelor of Industrial Design and a minor in Sustainability Studies from Pratt Institute. She is currently working with several education institutions in Colombia to improve not only the spaces in where children learn but also collaborating to create a new curriculum base on Education for Sustainable Development.

Believing that industrial design is so much more than cute chairs, she is eager to explore the limits and possibilities of design.

She joined the Summer Intensive program hoping to expand and continue learning about design and improve her writing skills.
