Daniel R. Ringelstein
AIA, Director of Urban Design and Planning
Dan Ringelstein brings a unique perspective to his many accomplishments in urban environments around the world. As an architect, urban designer, and planner, he is both interested in the physical characteristics of a place and how planning, urban design, urban infrastructure, and architecture can create a positive public environment. This is evident in the strong role he has played in getting complex projects of significant magnitude planned, implemented, and built.
As the leader of SOM’s European Urban Design + Planning Group, Ringelstein directs projects that focus on the urban regeneration of cities. He also guides and implements the urban strategy of each architectural project in the London office. Collaborating closely within a multidisciplinary team, he assists in the development of all concepts with the client and specialist consultants.
Ringelstein has extensive experience in working in differing cultures and contexts across the United States, Europe, and Southeast Asia. His urban design and planning skills include working with regional authorities, city officials, developers, specialist consultants, and individual communities to deliver long-term visions. His architectural design skills include working with clients and consultants developing all phases of a project from the initial conceptual studies through construction.
