Founder

Danish Kurani is a Pakistani-American architect and urban designer. By age 13, he was designing recreation centers for children on the streets of Karachi. Danish went on to study architecture at Harvard and Rice University and work for industry titans.

In 2013, Danish launched Kurani to design solutions for society’s biggest problems. His creations include STEM labs that give inner-city kids learning opportunities, floating houses to protect people during floods, and a rehabilitation center as an alternative to prisons.

The OECD, national governments, and Google call Danish for advice on design. His efforts to build a better world have earned him titles of “Agent of Change” by the Centre for Social Innovation, “Young Leader” by the World Cities Summit, and “Generation Change” by Hillary Clinton and the US Government.
