Charlie Gullström, PhD, Architect SAR/MSA, is a Visiting Associate Professor in Architecture, Media, Interaction and Communication at the Department of Architecture, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm. Her research and practice seeks to extend our conception of disciplinarity by examining the contribution of media, interaction and communication – specifically, the fusion of architecture and media technology that enables mediated presence and dialogic interaction across time and space (i.e. presence design). In 2010, Charlie Gullström defended a doctoral thesis entitled “Presence Design: Mediated Spaces Extending Architecture”. She previously headed the VINNOVA Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Communications at KTH, as its Centre Director 2006-2007.
Charlie Gullström is an experienced architect: from 1990-2005 she led a widely-renowned practice in Stockholm, specialising in designing meeting spaces for which learning, collaboration and communication are central, explicit concerns for leading Swedish corporations and educational institutions.
