Writers House Honored by Preservation Alliance

Writers House interior stair

The Writers House at Rutgers-Camden, designed by SMP Architects, was recognized by the Preservation Alliance of Greater Philadelphia with a Grand Jury Award. Originally known as the Henry Genet Taylor House at 305 Cooper Street, the building was designed by Wilson Eyre. The Writers House includes classrooms, meeting space, and a design lab for digital writing programs. It will host the annual Writers in Camden series, student readings, special events, and house the offices of StoryQuarterly, a literary journal published by the master of fine arts program. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was sensitively renovated to maintain its historic character.
