Giving voice to Australia's world-class architects
Nigel Bertram is a director of NMBW Architecture Studio and practice professor of architecture in the Faculty of Art Design and Architecture at Monash University in Melbourne. Nigel established NMBW Architecture Studio in Melbourne with Marika Neustupny and Lucinda McLean in 1997. Their architectural work since that time has been widely published and awarded across categories including urban design, single and multiple residential design, small public works, adaptive re-use of existing buildings and peripheral urban design strategies. NMBW's work is known for its careful reading of existing conditions, at both an urban scale and the scale of individual inhabitation.
In 2012 Nigel was appointed as a member of the Design Review Panel established by the Office of the Victorian Government Architect. Nigel's current research with the Monash Urban Laboratory tests design-led processes for suburban regeneration and infill redevelopment, seeking new relationships between natural and human-made systems.
