Harvard University Graduate School of Design Publications

The publications program of the Harvard University Graduate School of Design (GSD) examines current challenges and debates in design theory and practice, linking developments in the study of the built environment to research in other disciplines. Our eclectic series draw from the Harvard GSD's wide-ranging intellectual and creative output, reflecting the discourse, research, and innovation generated in and around the School. Faculty, students, visiting critics and practitioners, as well as thinkers and makers from other fields and institutions contribute to this dynamic collection of books, journals, and reports. Harvard Harvard Design Design Magazine Magazine (pp. 2–7) anchors our program. Published twice a year, the magazine probes beyond the established design disciplines to enrich and diversify current discourse. We also publish The The Incidents Incidents (pp. 8–13) — pocket books that capture uncommon events at the Harvard GSD; Platform Platform (pp. 14–19), the yearly compendium of student work and life; New New Geographies Geographies (pp. 20–23), an annual journal of design, agency, and territory produced by doctoral candidates; Harvard Harvard Design Design Studies Studies (pp. 24–27), volumes generated through deeper investigations and dialogue; and Studio Studio Reports Reports (pp. 28–35), a series documenting work and pedagogy from design studios. In addition, the Harvard GSD collaborates with independent independent publishers publishers (pp. 36–41) on unique projects that examine pertinent topics in architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning and design. These publications can be purchased through our distribution distribution partners partners (pp. 42–43) and from booksellers worldwide.

No Sweat Harvard Design Magazine #46

This issue of Harvard Design Magazine is about the design of work and the work of design. “No Sweat” challenges designers to speculate on the spaces of work in an accelerated future, and to imagine a world in which a novel ethics of labor can emerge. What scenarios and spaces can we imagine for the next generation of work? How can we anticipate and formulate work environments and experiences that are productive, humane, and ecologically responsible? While some claim that a world without work is on the horizon, “labor-saving” innovations are enmeshed with human exploitation, and housework and care work remain at the crux of persistent inequalities. Paradoxically, the more that work, as we once understood it, appears to be receding, the more omnipresent and ambiguous it becomes. The workplace is everywhere—or is it nowhere? With adrienne maree brown, Jonathan Crary, Peggy Deamer, Maria Shéhérazade Giudici, David Graeber, Dolores Huerta, Florian Idenburg, Hilary Sample, Douglas Spencer, and others.

Into the Woods Harvard Design Magazine #45

In a period of accelerated climate change, the planet’s woods are disappearing, burning up, threatening and threatened by human existence. How can we holistically address the woods and its ecosystems, and the life and life-giving power they contain? This issue of Harvard Design Magazine treks into the woods to come to terms with its precarious status as habitat and resource, and to challenge assumptions about wood as material. At the intersection of wilderness, urbanization, and myth, “Into the Woods” embraces contradiction, challenges destruction, and revisits our roots, biological and architectural alike. With Giorgio Agamben, Maria Thereza Alves, Alexander Brodsky, Lawrence Buell, TJ Demos, Dogma, Bas Princen, Maria Tatar, Milica Topalovic, Anna Tsing, and others.

Seventeen Harvard Design Magazine #44

What does it mean to be 17 in 2017? This issue of Harvard Design Magazine checks in with teens of all sorts—humans, buildings, objects, ideas—and their impact on the spatial imagination. Like a bildungsroman for the built environment, “Seventeen” dives into the treacherous, exhilarating limbo of the teen years to understand and reclaim this global adolescence. Like all teenagers, we are asking: who are we, where do we fit in, and how can we, too, make our marks—as impactful designers and as an evolving discipline? In a divided, temperamental 2017, there is much to learn from the teenager. With Lydia Davis, Eva Díaz, feminist architecture collaborative, Sarah Williams Goldhagen, Owen Hatherley, Sam Jacob, Beryl Satter, AbdouMaliq Simone, Urban Think-Tank, and others.

Beyond the Collaboration Sterling Ruby and Raf Simons

How do you tell the story of a friendship? How do you trace the roots of one of the most significant cross-disciplinary unions in fashion today? Artist Sterling Ruby and fashion designer Raf Simons did just that when they sat on stage with curator Jessica Morgan at the Harvard GSD. Offering complimentary perspectives on a bond that has matured over the span of a decade, and a body of work that transcends boundaries, Ruby and Simons spoke with mutual respect, trust, and a deep investment in the future. This is a story, and an exchange, that is beyond collaboration.

Virgil Abloh

“What’s my DNA?” Virgil Abloh asks an overflowing auditorium at the Harvard GSD. Abloh goes on to provide his audience with a “cheat code”—advice he wishes he had received as a student. He then unpacks a series of “shortcuts” for cultivating a “personal design language.” Trained as an architect and engineer, Abloh has translated the tools and techniques of his student days into the world of fashion, product design, and music. His label, Off-White, works in seeming contradictions, marrying streetwear with couture, collaborating with brands like Nike and Ikea, but also the Red Cross; musicians like Lil Uzi Vert and Rihanna; and “mentors” like Rem Koolhaas. Impervious to hurdles (“They literally don’t exist.”), Abloh takes us behind the scenes of his design process, sharing the essentials of editing, problem-solving, and storytelling. He paints a picture of his DNA, and then flips the question: What’s your DNA?

Architectural Ethnography Atelier Bow-Wow

When Yoshi Tsukamoto and Momoyo Kaijima of Atelier Bow-Wow arrived at the Harvard GSD in the winter of 2016, they challenged students to look deeply at their surroundings, and to record their reactions as a “public drawing.” In it, time is suspended and expanded; futures, presents, and pasts converge; and the act of drawing becomes an instrument of dialogue and engagement. In this conversation with K. Michael Hays, Tsukamoto and Kaijima unfold their concept of an "ecology of livelihood” wherein shadow-less figures, objects, and spaces coexist with construction details. Explaining their belief in the “behavioral capacity” of humans, architecture, and nature, Tsukamoto and Kaijima reveal the generosity of spirit in their work, and the importance of pushing such capacities to their most yielding limits.

Setting the Table Platform 11

Edited by Esther Mira Bang, Lane Raffaldini Rubin, and Enrique Aureng Silva

Platform represents a year in the life of the Harvard GSD. Produced annually, this compendium highlights a selection of work from the disciplines of architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning and design, and design ­e ngineering. It exposes a rich and varied pedagogical culture committed to shaping the future of design. Documenting projects, research, events, exhibitions, and more, Platform offers a curated view into the emerging topics, techniques, and dispositions within and beyond the Harvard GSD. In Setting the Table, the first student-led installment of the series, editors Esther Mira Bang, Lane Raffaldini Rubin, and Enrique Aureng Silva assemble a diverse body of work and cut it up— reinterpreting, rearranging, and ultimately composing a poetry revealed in each retelling.

Live Feed Platform 10

Edited by John May and Jon Lott

Live Feed confronts a central paradox: the “live feeds” of our lives are exponentially more mediated than the analog forms of documentation they are so quickly replacing and erasing. This fact, in combination with the rapid manipulability endemic to all electronic media, now presents us, its users, with radically new conditions of knowledge and imagination. This live feed samples 728 images from a crowd-sourced database of 117,518 files— generated by students, faculty, and staff alike— revealing the fluidity of the place, production, and people at the Harvard GSD.

Edited by Jennifer Bonner

Taking the artistic still life as its departure point, the ninth edition of Platform chronicles the 2015–2016 academic year at the Harvard GSD. Models, projects, and texts are presented to reference the still life as expressed in 18th- and 19th-century European painting, advertising, and contemporary art. Still Life presents the range of work produced at the School and challenges conventional modes of architectural documentation through multiple readings, lists, and novel interpretations of form.

Fallow New Geographies 10

New Geographies 10 borrows the term fallow as a metaphor to critically examine cycles of devaluing and revaluing built and unbuilt environments. In agriculture, fallowing is understood as a process of restoring latent ecological capacity through periodic idleness. “Fallow” extends this concept to a much broader spectrum of conditions, including many that are not immediately associated with crop rotation, but which are inscribed in diverse forms of devalorization and revalorization associated with geographies of industrial capitalism. Rather than assume a strict binary of fecund or barren, the texts assembled in this volume critically reflect on the sites, strategies, scales, and imaginaries of the devalued, the dormant, and the wasted, and explore revalorization in all its forms: cultural, ecological, economic, and social.

Common Frameworks Rethinking the Developmental City in China

Edited by Christopher C. M. Lee

The dazzling scale and mesmerizing speed of China’s development in the early 21st century have unleashed a wave of new urban challenges. Vast territories in China are now dominated by the “developmental city”—the city conceived and built for excessive profit. Common Frameworks delves into three challenges posed by this urban phenomenon: the megaplot, the cross-border city, and the countryside. Showcasing design projects, research, and writings on culture, politics, and history, this volume proposes a new concept for the city in China. With Piper Gaubatz, Rahul Mehrotra, Mohsen Mostafavi, Peter G. Rowe, Simon Whittle, Jianfei Zhu, and others.

Transforming Omishima Toyo Ito and Jun Yanagisawa

Omishima, an island in the Seto Inland Sea of Japan, has forested mountains and orange orchards covering much of its land, and 13 hamlets scattered along its coast. The well-known Oyamazumi Shrine sits in the center of the island, guarding this beautiful scenery. Dedicated to the God of Mountains, the shrine provided a popular stopping point for samurai, and was traditionally accessed by a ceremonious pedestrian path called the Sando. Once an active zone of agriculture, pilgrimage, and community, Omishima’s aging population and decreasing birth rate has contributed to the diminishing of activity on the island, resulting in shrunken orange orchards and an increasingly desolate Sando. Transforming Omishima documents work produced in a design studio led by Toyo Ito and Jun Yanagisawa in Tokyo during the 2017 fall semester. Student projects highlighted in this report pursued ways to revitalize Omishima through design interventions at various sites on the island, including a vacant house, a former primary school, and the now-deserted Sando.

$2000 Home Cocreating in the Bengal Delta

Marina Tabassum

The Bengal Delta is defined by the fluidity and chemistry of land and water. As the confluence of the mighty rivers Padma and Jamuna, the fragile soft soil of the delta is in constant flux. This area is home to the 150 million people of Bangladesh. Their lives tell stories of negotiation, adaptation, and appropriation. In Marina Tabassum's fall 2017 design studio, Harvard GSD students encountered five such stories after meeting families living in Taher­p ur and Modonpur, two villages located in the Jessore district in southern Bangladesh. $2000 Home: Cocreating in the Bengal Delta features proposals for domestic spaces, designed specifi­ cally for one of the five families. Pursuing architecture in such a landscape requires understanding impermanence and embracing informality. The act of architecture becomes a search for innovative and creative ways of defining life with minimal means that goes beyond space and form.

Manila: Future Habitations Rok Oman, David Rubin, and Špela Videcnik

Manila’s extraordinary history—written, erased, and rewritten— has rendered a current condition that is one of extremes and great tensions. The city is rife with poverty and affluence, congestion and release, pollution and ecological diversity. Manila: Future Habitations focuses on four strategic areas within or adjacent to Manila’s historic core: the Port of Manila, where sea level rise, commerce, a desire to access waterfront by citizenry, and a need for middle-class housing stock all collide; the Baseco compound, a spontaneous settlement situated on a peninsula in Manila Bay with no infrastructure; the Pasig Riverfront, challenged by an ecological system in ruins; and the Intramuros, where infrastructure, archi­tecture, and the vestiges of colonial Manila misalign. The work from this studio studies the design of human settlements, new types of dwellings, the connective tissue and common ground of cities, and the challenge of designing for the human condition against future tensions.

Portman’s America & Other Speculations

Edited by Mohsen Mostafavi

Portman’s America: & Other Speculations takes an unconventional and speculative approach toward the understanding and future potentials of the work of one of the world’s most creative, controversial, daring, and prolific architects. Combining the talents of an architect, artist, and developer, John Portman was able to embark on a series of large-scale building projects— megastructures—that radically redefined the relationship of architecture to the city and its citizens. Portman’s own voice and ideas complement the contributions of others, including new photographs by Iwan Baan, to present a more complex and nuanced reading of both the architect and his architecture. Finally, the repertoire of Portman’s buildings is analyzed in meticulous detail and used by a group of students from the Harvard GSD as a catalyst for a host of divergent and new architectural speculations. With Jennifer Bonner, Preston Scott Cohen, Merrill Elam, K. Michael Hays, John Portman, Mack Scogin, and Mickey Steinberg.

Ethics of the Urban The City and the Spaces of the Political

Edited by Mohsen Mostafavi

Is democracy spatial? How are the physical aspects of our cities, houses, and streets bearers of our values? In a world of intensifying geo-economic integration, financial and geopolitical volatility, accelerating population movements, deepening environmental crises, and a dramatic wave of protest against governments and capitalist speculation, cities have become leading sites for new formations of political subjectivity, identity, and citizenship. This volume brings together voices from diverse disciplines to explore the urban spaces of the political. With Keller Easterling, Chantal Mouffe, Saskia Sassen, Richard Sennett, Erik Swyngedouw, Krzysztof Wodiczko, and others.

The Generic Sublime Organizational Models for Global Architecture

Edited by Ciro Najle

Skyscraper collectives, tower agglomerations, mixed-use developments; airport hubs, industrial parks, hotel complexes; satellite cities, theme parks, gated communities: what is the potential latent in contemporary extra-large typologies? What is the reach of this potential to rethink the contemporary urban condition? The Generic Sublime investigates how the generic holds the opportunity to turn into its opposite: the singular, the irreducible, and the extraordinary. With Iñaki Ábalos, Paul Anderson, Marcia Krygier, George L. Legendre, Lluis Ortega, David Salomon, and others.
