Nick Wood lands Droga Architecture Residency

The Australian Institute of Architects’ Droga Architect in Residence program welcomes London’s Nick Wood to Australia to commence his three-month residency.

October 20th, 2015


Nick Wood is the founder and director of How About Studio and will be presenting a range of talks, lectures and workshops around the country in addition to undertaking a research project focusing on the role of the awning in inner urban environments.

Wood is known for his work exploring the intersection between art and architecture, with an investment in the fabrication process of combining craft and digital technologies to create new and engaging experiences.

In selecting Wood for the program, the jury, chaired by Brit Andresen, noted “Nick is a non-traditional maker, combining a sense of community purpose and a fascination with the material world in a unique way.”

“Nick’s proposal to look at the Sydney awning ties a practice based approach to research into an identifiable Sydney urban element, and invites a reconsideration of policy and discussion relevant to projects such as the Sydney Light Rail corridor and Parramatta Road upgrade.”

Wood will present a lecture and workshop in Adelaide for the Festival of Architecture and Design on 8-9 October. Responding to the festival’s theme of ‘Life on the Edge’, Wood will be exploring the relationship and potential futures between Adelaide’s CBD and outer districts.

And later on Friday 16 October, Wood will join Sibling Architects for a free event to discuss overlapping themes in their work at the MPavilion in Melbourne.

Wood will be documenting his residency and research project on his blog, The Awning Project, at theawningproject.tumblr.com
