Arcadia Landscape Architecture has announced that Nicole Wilson is joining the Sydney studio as a Principal.

With more than 15 years of years of diverse local and international experience to the team, with a particular passion for complex, community-focused urban design projects, “Nicole’s exceptional experience in large-scale master planning and multi-faceted projects with numerous stakeholders will be a huge asset to our project teams, who are currently working on a range of city-shaping legacy projects, including a network of state-significant urban activation precincts,” says Alex Longley, Founding Principal at Arcadia Landscape Architecture.

Some of Wilson’s recent project experience has included the Australian War Memorial Southern Entrance Redevelopment, Sydney Park Children’s Bike Track, Lendlease Circular Quay Tower Public Domain, Pemulwuy Precinct, Taronga Zoo Wildlife Retreat, the Waterloo Estate State Significant Precinct as well as the London Culture and University District, Stratford in the UK.

“I was eager to work with a company that had a great pipeline of urban and public work but is also championing innovative design with a point of difference. I love that Arcadia’s projects embrace upfront, authentic Indigenous collaboration, and that there is a commitment from the business to integrate this through every facet of the company, not just design,” says Wilson.

“I’m excited by the opportunity to contribute to Arcadia’s growth nationally. This role combines my passion for designing great spaces with the joy I get from using my mentoring and leadership skills to nurture and support my work colleagues.”

“As a working mother, I’m passionate about showing what women in our industry can achieve at a senior level, and I’m thrilled to be in a position to make some noise about this and contribute to industry-wide change,” Wilson says.
