d.esk is an eponymous practice led by David Eskenazi in Los Angeles. Its aim is to contribute to the history of ideas in architecture through a close look at contemporary conundrums. The practice works at all scales, with current projects in California and Mexico. Recent work includes a full-scale installation at the Banvard Gallery at Ohio State and a proposal for an office building in Los Angeles.

Alongside the practice, David pursues design research through writing and teaching, with publications in journals including Project Journal, Pidgin Magazine, Dimensions Journal, Archinect, Offramp, and One Twelve. His work has been exhibited in over twelve public installations and exhibitions throughout the United States. He has been awarded League Prize from the Architectural League of New York, the Oberdick Fellowship at the University of Michigan, the LeFevre Fellowship at the Ohio State University, and was a MacDowell Fellow. Currently, David is a design studio and visual studies faculty at SCI-Arc. He received a Master of Architecture with distinction from SCI-Arc and a Bachelor of Architecture from Carnegie Mellon University.
