Evelyn Meynard – SVA MA Design Research

Evelyn Meynard is an independent researcher who focuses on the revision of design histories and contemporary practices concerning under-represented or neglected critical and cultural perspectives. Meynard is also interested in presenting her work — whether as curatorial projects or published criticism — in a form and manner accessible to the broadest possible public. Meynard’s main interests in the field of material culture include but are not limited to architecture, sustainability, and design theory. Meynard is currently preparing an exhibition and publication on the work of Chilean architect Emilio Duhart. She holds an MA History of Design and Curatorial Studies from The New School.
