Charlie completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Bath. She has since undertaken placements at London practices: LEEP Architects and LTS Architects. She worked a stint as a set designer on a Bollywood film and travelled to Cuba on a research project to explore how the country’s 20th-century revolution impacted its architecture.
Following graduation Charlie returned to LTS, working predominantly on competition bids and a social housing project, the latter being an area she explored in her undergraduate final year thesis. Until April, Charlie worked at Lipton Plant Architects, assisting on a wide range of projects and competitions.
During her time at the LSA, Charlie has been focusing on the rapidly developing area of Stratford, from a pedestrianisation proposal in her Urban Studies module to a Planning Centre proposal for her thesis project. The latter stemmed from her thesis ‘Open Plan’ which called for a transparent and inclusive planning system- with a planning hub in every borough.
In her spare time, Charlie enjoys playing guitar and exploring London on bike and on foot.
