Welcome and thank you for visiting Sodium Design. My name is Nicholas Ault and I am an Architectural Designer living in Charlotte, North Carolina. For the past eight years I have held positions at Clemson University and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte as a Lecturer, Professor in Residence and Director of Digital Fabrication Labs. Having spent the bulk of my career dedicated to the world of higher education, I recently decided to change directions and fully invest myself in the pursuit of professional practice. This change has led me to a wonderful opportunity asI have recently joined the Charlotte office of Perkins + Will where I will continue my education as an architect and apply my background in the academic world to the continued evolution of the design process in practice. As I continue to pursue my education as an architect I hope to continue to foster relationships in the academic world, play a role in the continued development of a design culture in the city, investigate the ways in which technology augment the practice of architecture and become a complete and thoughtful architect.
The work represented in the following pages illustrates a sampling of teaching, research and design work that I have directly executed or that of students directly under my supervision in either the architectural design studio or a variety of topics based seminar coursework.
I would like to thank you for visiting the site and encourage to contact me directly with any questions that you may have.
