David Orkand graduated from Otis College of Art and Design as valedictorian of his class in 2004.
While at Otis he also studied at the Architectural Association in London during a summer session, traveled throughout Europe and the Americas, and worked in the offices of Patrick Tighe Architecture and Griffin Enright Architects.

After graduating from Otis, David attended Princeton University's School of Architecture. David participated in travel studios in China, Japan, and the United States and, as the recipient of a Howard Crosby Butler Fellowship, conducted his thesis research in Iceland. He also worked in the office of Architecture Dean Stan Allen and served as his Assistant in Instruction on multiple occasions.

Upon completing his Master of Architecture with a Graduate Certificate in Media and Modernity, David spent the following year traveling throughout Asia, living and working predominantly in Tokyo and Beijing. After this nomadic period, David moved to Madrid, Spain, to work for Mansilla + Tuñón Arquitectos, where he worked on numerous architectural projects in their office over several years. In the spring of 2009, David returned to his alma mater, Princeton University, to serve as a Teaching Assistant for his employers, Luis Mansilla and Emilio Tuñón.

David then pursued additional travel in Europe and Africa, finally returning to Tokyo as a Monbukagakusho Doctoral and Research Fellow in the Tsukamoto Laboratory at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. He spent the following three years conducting research and working with numerous Japanese architects including: Toyo Ito, SANAA, Junya Ishigami, Kazunari Sakamoto, Atelier Bow-Wow, and Go Hasegawa.
 
Upon completing his Doctoral course work, David recently moved back to his home state of California. Since returning he has been teaching at the University of California, Berkeley and the California College of the Arts.
David recently (winter 2014) started his own practice, atelier d.o.a., operating out of the Bay Area.
