Lunchtime Q&A with Michael Kimmelman – SVA MA Design Research

Lunchtime Q&A with Michael Kimmelman

From public housing and community development to issues of social responsibility, The New York Times‘ Michael Kimmelman has already shaken up our traditional notion of what an architecture critic is supposed to cover. In this intimate lunchtime Q&A, Kimmelman will address questions relating to the role of an architecture critic, discuss the possibilities for the future of criticism, and suggest what a burgeoning generation of critics should take notice of.

Michael Kimmelman is an author, critic and columnist. He is the chief architecture critic for The New York Times and has written on issues of public housing, public space, community development and social responsibility. He was the paper’s longtime chief art critic and, in 2007, created the Abroad column, covering culture, political and social affairs across Europe and elsewhere. In July, 2011, the Times appointed him chief architecture critic and also made him the paper’s senior critic.
