Dara created DH Liberty in 2013. Her idea was simple: First, recruit architects and designers who’ve honed their craft working for the world’s most renowned architecture firms. Then, give them the freedom to look at each project with totally unshackled imagination. And then watch the magic unfold.

Dara graduated from Harvard University with a BA and MA in Architecture. She then worked at Herzog de Meuron in Switzerland, Asymptote Architects in New York City, and Foster + Partners in London. During that time, she worked on Skyscraper, 56 Leonard Street, New York City and The Tate Modern II museum in London.

She is regularly invited to participate as a public speaker, in design and global events including: reSITE, Prague; MIPIM, for the City of London, Cannes; PropTech, London; Art Basel, Hong Kong and at the RIBA, London.

Dara’s father was a NASA scientist who emigrated from Taiwan to the United States, and she’s lived in places like Tokyo, Basel and New York City. This multicultural background shows in her work, as does her love of contemporary art, pop culture, and technology.
