About NAAU

NAAU is an emerging architecture and urban design practice led by Edmund Carter, John Doyle, Ben Milbourne and Laura Mártires. We have successfully delivered the Latrobe Regional Gallery in Morwell which is becoming a much loved asset for the local community, was delivered on a very tight budget and has been well acknowledged by the design community.

NAAU’s practice seeks to develop innovative solutions to the challenges of building in cities and urban environments. We specialise in design and problem solving, with a trans-disciplinary approach that spans architecture, interior and urban design, as well as information systems, sustainability, planning, economics, infrastructure and construction technology. We are involved in ongoing research into the future of cities, and innovation in information and fabrication technology through our partnership with RMIT University.

NAAU's creative team has over 40 years of experience in significant architecture and urban design projects both internationally and in Australia. We contribute regularly to industry publications and journals and their work has been published extensively. The partners are regularly invited to lecture on issues around architecture and urbanism and have received numerous awards and citations.
