Places Launches Summer Workshop for Academic Partners

Workshop participants 2020

This month, we’re delighted to be welcoming students from our Academic Partners to our virtual classroom for the inaugural Places Summer Writing + Editorial Workshop.

Twenty-eight students from faculties of design in North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia will take part in a series of intensive week-long online workshops throughout July; each session will include seminars, writing practice, and one-on-one mentorship with Places’ editors. During the course of the workshop, participants will develop their own essays on the theme of “Architecture, Urbanism, Pandemics,” which will be published in a new special section of Places later this year.

We are excited to be working with the next generation of public scholars and design critics, and to be bringing their work to our community of partners and readers.
