Charles Kane is a Registered Architect from South Carolina. He completed a Master of Architecture from Yale University, a Master of Urban Design from UNC Charlotte and a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from Clemson University.
At Yale, Charles was awarded the Lord Norman R. Foster Scholarship for Design Excellence. He studied with Elia Zenghelis (Gigantes Zenghelis/OMA), Kersten Geers (OFFICE KGDVS) and Peter Eisenman. His work investigated the urban sprawl manifestations of Greece, the United States and China and their relationships between 19th- and 20th-century urban theory. He served as a Teaching Fellow for undergraduate studios and graduate theory courses. His team’s submission to the YSOA Jim Vlock Building Project was selected and constructed in New Haven, and he was part of the Yale team for Kengo Kuma’s LIXIL competition in 2015. From UNCC, he graduated first in his class, and, from Clemson, he graduated Magna Cum Laude. He has served as a guest juror at Clemson, UNCC and the University of Miami.
Prior to joining Oppenheim Architecture, Charles worked with Joel Sanders Architect in New York, C Design and Kent Lineberger in North Carolina and Kevan Hoertdoerfer in South Carolina on a wide range of project types, including residential, office, aviation and higher education.
