Prior to founding Constructive Dialogue, Nick worked for commercial practices in Sydney. In 1996, dissatisfied with the lack of community or social consideration in many projects, he left Australia and worked for community-based organisations in the Asia-Pacific region coordinating their building programs. During that period he completed his Masters on community building process with funding from the NSW Board of Architects, the Asian Coalition for Housing Rights and the University of Oregon. The methodology he developed during that time has fed directly into the approach now taken by Constructive Dialogue. It has proven effective at involving staff and building users in the design process. Nick has taught university programs and corporate workshops that focused on social considerations in design.
