Get to know Charlotte

Charlotte joined our BMJ Architects team this week. From championing equity, diversity and inclusion, with a particular focus on neurodiversity in the built environment to a green-black belt in kickboxing, Charlotte's passion was palpable.

What’s your job title? 


Why did you choose to become an Architect? 

As cliche as it sounds, I have always seen value in making the world a better place through the built environment. Our lives are shaped by the buildings we inhabit, and I want to help people by creating spaces that serve them and enhance the everyday.

What are you passionate about? 

I have a passion for championing equity, diversity and inclusion, with particular focus on neurodiversity in the built environment. Having been diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 27, it became clear to me that not all spaces are designed for me, and I want to contribute to the profession by creating spaces that can work for all.

What’s your educational background?

I have a BA (Hons) Architecture from the University for the Creative Arts; M Arch Architecture from the University of Greenwich and PgDip Professional Practice in Architecture from the University of Westminster.

Tell us about your other accomplishments.

I am a part of the Professional Architects Champion Guardians (PACG), a mentoring group in partnership with the University of Westminster. Through this, I am currently part of the Expert Reference Group consulting with the ARB’s Professional Practical Experience Commission. I am also a member of the Neurodiversity Architects Network.

I was a runner-up for the University of Westminster Part 3 Assael Architecture Award for Tenacity.

What’s your favourite quote? 

I really love Dr Stephen Shore’s quote “If you’ve met one person with autism, you’ve met one person with autism”. Labels don’t define us. We are all different, and it is my belief that we should celebrate those differences in an equitable society that serves us all.

What do you do outside of BMJ? 

I play tennis and squash, and volunteer at my church’s youth club. I enjoy travel and photography, and I also have a green-black belt in kickboxing.
