Adjunct Research Associate, Designing for Public Space
Charlotte Falk is an interdisciplinary designer and educator with a practice spanning public art, industrial design, communication design, and architecture. A graduate of the Master of Architecture program at the University of British Columbia, and the Bachelor of Design program at the University of Alberta (Industrial Design / Visual Communication Design / Fine Art), she most often designs for public space and publications. Falk’s work focuses on creative processes at the convergence of disciplines, analog and digital, and 2D/3D/4D. Across these elements, emphasis is placed on how considerations for materiality, methodology, and technique are generative throughout the design process—and ultimately manifest experientially in design outcomes. In 2018, she facilitated a series of workshops titled Making Space, in partnership with Arts Assembly and supported by the BC Arts Council. These participatory events looked at alternative methods for site specificity, intuitive responses to space, and the democratization of design (publication forthcoming).
