Nishan Ratinam

Nishan graduated from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT), Australia in 2009
and received a Masters of Architecture with Distinction. His thesis research focused on
developing strategies for the densification of suburban places in Melbourne and sought to
tackle the requirement for the provision of new large-scale infrastructure whilst maintaining the
small-scale texture and enhancing the social capital of the suburb. Other areas of his design
research include sustainable methods for the revitalization of underprivileged communities
and towns in greater Melbourne. His speculative project entitled ‘Waste Net’ was
exhibited at the Victorian-Eco Innovation Lab (VEIL), Australia as part of their ‘Visions’
exposition. In 2006 he studied abroad at the Ecole Nationale Superieure d'Architecture de
Montpellier (ENSAM), France and participated in the Nano City International Architecture
Workshop. In addition he has also worked in the area of sound design (for film), with his work
being exhibited at various international venues, including the International Architecture
Biennale Rotterdam (IABR).
