Nigel Gilkison has a wealth of knowledge and experience working alongside some of the worlds most renowned Architects and Urban Designers. A journey that has led him to starting his own consultancy practice ‘Universalform’.
Universalform can work across a range of project scales, including designing new subdivisions, assisting with regeneration plans, exploring land development opportunities, or designing new buildings.
“The goal is to create inspiring, innovative and sustainable design solutions which respond to local needs and conditions, creating attractive, vibrant and successful places which foster strong communities and provide inclusive environments for all people to use and enjoy.”
My interest in urban design developed initially from my interest in architecture, but also from my general interest in the fields of evolutionary theory, history, anthropology (the study of humankind), social organization and cultural identity. I am interested in the way in which urban design considers all aspects of human interaction (social, political, cultural, economic and environmental), providing a physical environment for human habitation which allows us to share skills and knowledge efficiently.
