Nikole Bouchard

Critic
Nikole Bouchard’s interdisciplinary research and design work straddles the space between art, architecture and landscape to discover ideas that stimulate ecologically sensitive and culturally relevant design interventions. Nikole engages in projects of all scales and media that explore contextually driven methods of design where experiments embody a unique sense of fantastical pragmatism—are playful, yet intentional, well-informed and environmentally conscious. Nikole is an associate professor in the School of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee and a critic in the School of Architecture at Yale University. She has also taught at Cornell University, Syracuse University, the University of Waterloo and the University of Toronto. Nikole has worked at the offices of Steven Holl Architects; Skidmore, Owings & Merrill; and Lateral Office. She has been a James Harrison Steedman fellow, a MacDowell fellow and an artist-in-residence at Baer Art Center in Hofsós, Iceland. Nikole edited and contributed to the book WASTE MATTERS: Adaptive Reuse for Productive Landscapes published by Routledge in January 2021.
