Weekend Heller: Writing, Research, Books, Books, Books
Writing and Research is FUNdamental
There are still a handful of spaces available for the SVA Design Writing and Research Summer Intensive in New York City. Apply today for an opportunity to hone your research and writing skills with acclaimed design editors, writers and critics.
If you’d like to learn how to construct compelling narratives about design, architecture and infrastructure, in a fast-paced format and a stimulating environment, then this is just the program for you.
You’ll have your own desk in the light-filled, open-plan DCrit studio in New York’s Chelsea district and will participate in a robust daily schedule of seminars, lectures, workshops and one-on-one consultations. You’ll also be guided on visits to the city’s design collections, archives, libraries, design and architecture studios, with behind-the-scenes access to new exhibitions, buildings and urban planning developments.
