Nick Wood


Nick Wood is an Architect and Founder of How About Studio, a London based design practice working internationally on projects ranging from event based installations, to furniture and permanent buildings.

His design work combines his passion and diverse knowledge of 1:1 making with a belief in the dormant potential within all spaces and places to delight the people that interact with them.

Projects within his practice explore the tangible overlaps between Art & Architecture, with an investment in the fabrication process that extends beyond his role as an Architect and focuses on combining craft and digital technologies to create new and engaging experiences.

Over recent years Nick has worked with large cultural institutions and local communities to create a diverse portfolio of high quality interventions. He has taught Architecture at CASS and Brighton University.

Nick is currently in Australia as the Droga Architect in Residence, courtesy of the Australian Institute of Architects Foundation.
