Welcome and thank you for visiting Sodium Design. My name is Nicholas Ault and I am a Licensed Architect living in Charlotte, North Carolina. Currently, I am working at Little Architects designing and detailing a large corporate headquarters in Northern California. Additionally, I have a small practice that is currently pursuing multiple small commercial projects in North + South Carolina. Previously, I have worked at Perkins+Will and as a Lecturer at multiple universities. I have held positions at Clemson University and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte as a Lecturer, Professor in Residence and Director of the Digital Fabrication Labs. Having spent the bulk of my career dedicated to the world of higher education, I have decided to change directions and fully invest myself in the pursuit of professional practice whilst I continue to be an active participant at regional universities through adjunct teaching opportunities and as a juror.

The work represented in the following pages illustrates a sampling of teaching, research and design work that I have directly executed or by students directly under my supervision.

I would like to thank you for visiting the site and encourage you to contact me directly with any questions that you may have.
