Charlotte Lipschitz is an architect and urban designer at Utile, Inc., where she focuses on institutional projects relating to education and public space. Her previous work combined interests in community development through architectural interventions, craft and material exploration.
Alongside work at Utile, Lipschitz founded Studio Morrow, where she experiments in design at a smaller scale. Her projects—including graphics, installations and residential design—examine the intricacies of daily life and the synergy between built objects and light in influencing how people interact with space and each other.
Lipschitz earned a bachelor’s in economics and public policy from Brown University and then worked in furniture design for Studio Dunn. She received her MArch from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, where she was awarded a Community Service Fellowship to oversee construction projects in Zambia for New York-based Scale Africa. She has worked for firms including Barkow Leibinger, RMA Architects, IK Studio and Jonathan Levi Architects; has taught undergraduate architecture studios at Northeastern; and is a registered architect in Massachusetts.
