His work for various international organisations in places as diverse as Africa, China and Europe regularly features in print, electronic and broadcast media internationally. In 2016 he won the RIBA President’s Medal for Research for ‘Asmara - Africa’s Modernist City’ and was very instrumental in the Eritrean capital being included on the World Heritage list in August 2017. Edward specialises in consulting on Urban Development and Cultural Heritage, Architectural Photography, Professional Research, Writing for academic, specialist and public readerships, and Sustainable Design. Nick’s research contends with two broad, open questions of architectural and urban history—what industrial changes occurred in building and architectural practices in mid-twentieth century Britain? How might those specific processes of change illuminate transformations in wider cultural and political dimensions? He has considered these questions in relation to the building industry, architectural profession, and wider cultural and political institutions, of mid-twentieth century London in particular. Nick continues to collaborate with a diverse range and number of scholars, public intellectuals, artists and architects in pursuit of this research.
