He’s interested in planning, strategy and architecture for places made of information, likes coffee an awful lot, and teaches information architecture at the University of Michigan School of Information.

In 2017, Klyn joined the scientific board and teaching faculty of Building Beauty, a new school of architecture in Sorrento, Italy with curriculum based on the work of Christopher Alexander. 

In early 2018, Dan began work on a book-length biography of Richard Saul Wurman, for whom he served as editorial assistant from 2015 – 17.
