Nicola Garrod

Director /Architect
<p>Nicola is a co-owner and director at ANTARCTICA, an architecture and design practice based in Melbourne. Nicola has been a part of ANTARCTICA since the practice began in 2005, playing a central role in its operation.</p> <p>ANTARCTICA brings design to a broad set of situations and audiences, including peripheral locations, difficult problems and tight budgets. We aim for our work to participate in the widest environment it can; in new forms of communication, in sensitive natural environments, new types of cities, and with ordinary life.</p> <p>With experience ranging from small installations and additions through to medium- and larger-scale community and recreation projects, Nicola has engaged in all aspects of practice – architecture in its broad sense. Through her principal role in delivering several large community buildings, Nicola has become skilled at stakeholder consultation and community engagement.</p> <p>After moving to Melbourne from Scotland in 2001, she completed her architectural study at RMIT. Nicola has continued to pursue her interest in the richness and diversity in architecture and the communities who inhabit it through both her practice and her sessional teaching role at RMIT University.</p>
