Charlotte Frank was born in Kiel, Germany. She began her architectural studies at Technische Universität Berlin in 1979 and graduated Diploma Architecture in 1984. Since 1987, she has worked with Axel Schultes, first at BJSS, and since 1992 as Schultes Frank Architekten in Berlin, Germany. Charlotte is a partner of the firm, together with Axel Schultes and Christoph Witt.

Among the most characteristic projects completed by Schultes Frank Architekten are the Treptow Crematorium ('98), the German Chancellery ('01) and the Galileo Control Center ('08). Competition entries for the German History Museum ('88), the Alexandrina Library ('89), the Spreebogen Masterplan ('93), the Grand Egyptian Museum in Giza ('02) and the Concert Hall 'Marstall' in Munich are among the most outspoken designs that reflect the architectural philosophy of Schultes Frank Architekten.

In 2003, Charlotte Frank was Visiting Professor at the Berlin Universiy of the Arts.

Hosted by The Mackintosh School of Architecture, the Architecture Friday Lecture Series looks beyond buildings and makes connections between architecture and wider issues like culture and the urban environment.
