Daniel V. Scully

Dan ScullyWhile in college, Daniel Scully worked for 4 summers with Louis I. Kahn, Architect, on projects such as the Exeter Library, in Exeter, NH, and the Sher-e-Bangla Nagar: Capital of Bangladesh in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Subsequently, he worked briefly for Paul Rudolph, architect of the Art and Architecture Building at Yale University, and then Robert Venturi, his thesis advisor with whom he helped write *Learning from Las Vegas*. After a year at the American Academy in Rome and teaching a full range of design, architectural history, and energy design courses for two years at Ramapo College in New Jersey, Dan became the third member of Total Environmental Action (TEA) in 1973. At TEA, Dan was on the Board of Directors, Vice President for Design and headed a 10 person Design Group division of the company that grew to 35 people and focused on solar heating and energy efficiency. There he also taught a more conceptual course on Integrated Energy Systems as they relate to building design form and technologies – now called Sustainable Design. DVS/A has designed several academic projects intended to meet the Green Building Council LEEDS standards.

Scully/Architects was founded in 1983. Very active in the Monadnock Region/Keene community, Dan finds a visually strong modern architectural irony, and zing, in an inventive juxtaposition of a combination of historical context and a future sustainable vision, in the individual scale service of the larger community context.

DVS/A has received numerous design and planning awards from the AIA and PLAN/NH Awards. AIANH awarded Dan their highest honor, the Clinton Sheerr Award for Architectural Excellence.
