Daniel Andres de Riva
Andres is passionate about cities and urban development, having worked on urban design projects throughout Europe and Latin America, on real estate investments in Spain, and on economic policy in Massachusetts’ Gateway Cities. He has taught at the Syracuse University School of Architecture, worked at the British real estate consultancy firm Knight Frank, and most recently worked at MassDevelopment, the Massachusetts finance and economic development agency. Andres enjoys working across professional silos, including design, policy, and finance, to propose cross-sector strategies that address complex urban challenges.
While at Harvard, Andres exhibited at the HLS and HKS European Conferences a family collection of 25 original posters printed in 1950 to promote the Marshall Plan and European cooperation. In addition, Andres partook in the launching of the Belfer Center’s (HKS) new Transatlantic Relations Initiative, where he presented a short film interviewing European and American students at HKS on their views and sentiments on NATO and the rise of populism.
Andres holds a Bachelor in Architecture from Cornell University, a Msc in Real Estate Development from Columbia University, and a MPA from the Harvard Kennedy School.
