Joshua Broomer


Joshua joined NRS in 2018 after working for prestigious architectural practices in London and Belgium. For these he has worked on office, residential, education and infrastructure projects. He completed his Bachelor of Architecture at the Mackintosh School of Architecture where his work was selected for publication in the school’s Mac Mag. After this, he completed his Masters at the Bartlett School of Architecture in a unit specialising in individual design based research and tools.

Joshua’s Masters project proposed the playful reuse of Turin’s waterfront into a cinematic playhouse to promote the city’s creative activity alongside the playful conservation of its historic buildings. For this, a range of digital and analogue, prototyping and testing methods were used. Through his interest in the making process, Joshua made a number of experimental models ranging from the portable to the basis of experiments with material and light.

Joshua also participated in the construction of multiple exhibitions, pavilions and film sets, and continues to seek innovative uses of fabrication and craftsmanship within his work. In 2017 he was part of the winning team for the IDEAtion place and displacement competition, proposing a market place and employment cooperative for refugees in Berlin. This was followed up by working with a number of communities on collaborative workshops and pro-bono design work.
