David Ross

David Ross is a licensed architect in California and Maine. He established David Ross Architects (DRA), a Los Angeles–based studio, in 2016, and relocated to Maine in 2018. The concept-driven firm develops speculative projects through sculptural material investigations and full-scale prototyping. Recent DRA projects include the design and construction of a ramp, entitled Dusk, for artist Torkwase Dyson’s exhibition at Colby College Museum of Art (October 2018). Previously, Ross led the NYC/LA-based experimental design agency Code-A.

Over the past 15 years, Ross has taught graduate and undergraduate architectural design studios and seminars. He has held teaching appointments at SCI-Arc, UCLA, RISD and UC Berkeley. Ross has collaborated with many leading architects and artists. In New York, he worked for Diller + Scofidio, and he was project architect at Steven Holl Architects. In Los Angeles, he was project director at Gehry Technologies. Ross is the author of the award-winning publication Pamphlet Architecture 24: Some Among Them Are Killers (Princeton Architectural Press, 2003) with an afterword by Lebbeus Woods.

Ross studied at the Architectural Association and at The Cooper Union, where he earned BArch and MArch degrees.
