Nick is a practice leader in rule-based design and research. Nick has used his considerable skills to advance the practice’s design methodology, his primary focus is on computational research, parametric design and performance orientated optimisation. Whilst working on the Regina Stadium, Nick developed the complex and efficient roof design using evolutionary algorithms.
Despite his youth Nick is at the cutting edge of rule based scripting. A significant proportion of his time is allocated to the practice’s research into computational stadia design. His leading status in the field is reflected in his appointment as a studio tutor for the Abstract Machines masters unit at LBU, where he lectures on computation and digital fabrication.
He earned his Masters of Architecture in 2012, attaining a Distinction. His award winning thesis project ‘Fabricari’ explored the application and effect of computational design to construction and fabrication was nominated for the RIBA Presidents Silver Medal. He continues to explore applications of scripting in industrial design and fabrication, with recent work being featured in London Design Festival.
