Danniely Staback Rodriguez


Danniely Staback Rodríguez is a Puerto Rican designer, academic and architect licensed in Massachusetts. Her research centers on the critical embrace of fabrication and design technologies as vehicles for both cultural awareness and creative expansion of the modern and the vernacular.

Staback obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Design from the University of Puerto Rico. She was admitted to MIT for a MArch degree as a graduate fellow and later became a teaching fellow. She has accrued a broad range of experience through her work at Muuaaa Design Studio, Díaz Paunetto Arquitectos, Block Research Group, Snøhetta, MIT, UIUC, KVA MATx and currently as a project architect at Studio Enée.
