Welcome and thank you for visiting Sodium Design. My name is Nicholas Ault and I am an Architectural Designer living in Charlotte, North Carolina. Currently, I am working at Perkins+Will Architects pursuing multiple projects of varying scope and size - from the 140,000 square foot New Belgium Brewery in Asheville, North Carolina to a 1,700 square foot pro-bono no-kill dog shelter in York County, South Carolina. In addition to my many opportunities at Perkins+Will, I am also once again teaching at the University of North Carolina - Charlotte where I am teaching the Computational Practices course to fourth-year undergraduates and will be teaching the first year undergraduate design studio as well as coordinating the first year curriculum in the Spring Semester of 2016.

Prior to my working at Perkins+Will, I, for the past eight years, 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 decided to change directions and fully invest myself in the pursuit of professional practice. This change was necessary in order to continue my own education as an architect while allowing me apply my background in academia to the design process.

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 in either the architectural design studio, focused seminar or my role as practitioner.

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