Nicholas G Potts is an architect and designer who has led landmark projects at world-renowned firms covering a broad spectrum of scales and project types. His early training under Joan Soranno and John Cook at HGA in Minneapolis instilled a a deep rigor and empathetic framework that led to notable projects in their studio including the national AIA-Award winning Lakewood Mausoleum, and that continues to influence his work.
While at the Harvard GSD, and later with AMO/OMA, he worked alongside Rem Koolhaas on the XIV Venice Architecture Biennale, eventually serving as one of the editors of a 1600-page encyclopedic history of the elements of architecture; he led SHoP Architect’s team on 111 west 57th Street as it navigated a complicated regulatory and technical framework, and two concurrent towers with BIG – including the Spiral at Hudson Yards – that challenge preexisting assumptions about commercial real estate.
Recently relocated from New York to Washington DC, he is pursuing high-concept work that builds on his legacy and unique approach to design: focused on deep historical, technical, and cultural research, data-driven communication, and an embrace of image-making and beauty.
