You are invited to join us for the 11th instalment of the Architecture Alumni Webinar Series featuring Nick Flutter, a Designer and Co-Lead of BVN's New York Studio.

About Nick Flutter

Nick Flutter

Nick Flutter co-leads BVN’s New York Studio, a small office embedded in the city’s startup culture. The studio is set up to work on projects across North America, as well as facilitate international collaboration and to prototype new ways of approaching architectural practice. 

Nick is invested in design at all scales. At the larger end of the spectrum - masterplans, high-rise commercial buildings and multi-residential developments, including the new Atlassian HQ in Sydney. The Atlassian project is a collaboration between BVN and SHoP Architects in New York, along with a diverse international consultant team with a mission to become Australia’s most sustainable high-rise building. Nick was also closely involved in BVN’s adaptive re-use plan for White Bay Power Station in Sydney for Google, and since then contributed to Google’s new campus in Sunnyvale, California, during his time working with Bjarke Ingels Group.

At the small scale, Nick is a founding member of Re-Ply, a BVN initiated project constructing pop-up architectural solutions for pandemic-affected restaurants and businesses in New York City. In addition to its community agenda, Re-Ply prototypes ideas relating to material circularity, productization and digital fabrication that can be scaled up on BVN’s bigger projects.

Nick’s longstanding passions for sailing and boatbuilding, bicycle frame building and furniture making have led to a deep interest in new design tools and digital fabrication, manufacturing and global supply chains that integrates with his architectural work at BVN.

Nick graduated UQ with a Master of Architecture in 2009, receiving the Karl & Gertrude Langer Memorial Prize for Drawing and a commendation for the Thesis Prize. His final year work was also shortlisted for the 2010 RIBA Presidents medal and received a commendation in the 2010 Colorbond Steel Student Biennale.
