About Charlotte Falk
Charlotte Falk is an interdisciplinary designer and educator with a practice spanning industrial design, communication design, architecture and public art. She holds a Master of Architecture (University of British Columbia) and a Bachelor of Design (University of Alberta), and designs primarily for public space and publications. Building from her interdisciplinary background in design and visual art, Falk works with artists on the development and execution of public art commissions. In this role, she has collaborated with professionals across disciplines to bring public art projects to fruition throughout Canada.
Her research 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, Falk 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. She is currently an Adjunct Research Associate with Living Labs at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, co-leading the Designing for Public Space project.
