Nick is a design lead at Pattern, a practise that specialises in Stadia design. Generally focusing on large complex structures such as the stadium façade and roof. These packages involve a high technical and computational knowledge to design, develop, coordinate and construct. With contractors, engineers and suppliers spread around the world.
While Abstract Machines is an experimental design studio, that explores fabrication through innovative computational design methodologies and CAD/CAM technologies. These ideas are explored through a mix of academic teaching and live projects. Nick has taught at Leeds Beckett University for five years on the Masters unit of the same name and led several live projects with students. The studios most recent completed project Greathem Creek won a Structural Steel Design award and was shortlisted for RIBA NE Award.
