Paul Nicholas holds a PhD in Architecture from RMIT University, Melbourne Australia, and joined the Center for Information Technology and Architecture (CITA) as an adjunct professor in 2011. Paul’s particular interest is in computational approaches that support interdependent design and thinking by establishing new and different links between architecture and other fields. Having previously worked at Arup Melbourne from 2005 and Edaw London from 2009, his current research explores the idea that composites, or designed materials, necessitate new relationships between material behaviour and digital representation. Paul co-founded the design practice mesne in 2005, and has exhibited in recent Beijing and Venice Biennales.
