Daniel Parolek

 

Daniel Parolek is an architect and urbanist who is committed to creating and reinforcing walkable, sustainable places and designing buildings that reinforce them. He is the founding Principal of Opticos Design, Inc. and is at the forefront of the practice of Form-Based Coding. He is coauthor of the first comprehensive book on the topic “Form-Based Codes: A Guide for Planners, Urban Designers, Municipalities, and Developers,” which was published by Wiley in 2008 and has been called “the definitive handbook” on the subject. Since 2003, Opticos has been working with Town Founders Robert and Daryl Davis and Leon Krier to create a master plan for the evolution of the Town Square and beachfront of Seaside, Florida, that was the recipient of a 2011 CNU Charter Award. The plan is intended to create a modern-day agora and includes a dramatic beachfront plaza, a civic viewing tower designed by Leon Krier (for which Opticos is serving as Architect of Record), an enhanced outdoor amphitheater, which started construction in the spring of 2011, and bazaar-like retail market buildings designed by Opticos. Daniel has a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Notre Dame and a Master of Urban Design from the University of California at Berkeley.
