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.

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.

Shelf Life Harvard Design Magazine #43

The more stuff we accumulate, the more space we need to store it all. How does our surplus of “stuff” mask the void of our economic and ecological bankruptcy? Is storage about greed or need? “Shelf Life” opens and unpacks the structures, systems, and containers that have been designed, built, or appropriated for storage. Warehouse, shed, tank, urn, vault, box, shelf, crypt, vat, morgue, safe, bin, freezer, depository, closet, cellar, cemetery, archive, landfill. . . . Storage, perhaps, is “everything we can live without” but insist on living with. With DESIGNEARTH, Jacques Herzog, Maira Kalman, Peggy Kamuf, Anupama Kundoo, Armin Linke, Shannon Mattern, Jonathan Olivares, Martin Roth, and others.

“Insert Complicated Title Here”

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.

Design Thinking in the Digital Age

Peter G. Rowe

In 1987, Peter G. Rowe published his pioneering book Design Thinking. In it, he interrogated conceptual approaches to design in terms of both process and form. Thirty years later, in a lecture at the Harvard GSD, Rowe offered a reappraisal of his earlier work, describing ways in which the capacities of the digital age have changed the way we perceive and understand creative problem solving in architectural design. In this new account of design thinking based on that memorable talk, Rowe charges that ideas about the “precision” and “incompleteness” of information have become exaggerated and made more manifest. He dives into the crucial role of schema theory and the heuristics that flow from it, but concedes that the “ineffable characteristics of design problems and of design thinking also appear to have remained.”

Live Feed Platform 10

Edited by Jon Lott and John May

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.

Posthuman New Geographies 09

Posthuman surveys the urban environments shaping the morethan-human geographies of the early 21st century. The term “posthuman” signals a historical condition in which the coordinates of human existence on the planet are altered by profound technological, ecological, biopolitical, and spatial transformations. Interpreting design as a geographical agent deeply involved in the territorial engravings of contemporary urbanization, New Geographies 09 investigates the urban landscapes shaping the posthuman geographies of the early 21st century, fostering a wide-ranging debate about both the potentials and challenges for design to engage with the complex spatialities, more-than-­ human ecologies, and diverse forms and habits of life in a post-anthropocentric world. With Rosetta Elkin, the GIDEST Collective, Erik Swyngedouw, Charles Waldheim, Rosalind Williams, Alejandro Zaera-Polo, and others.

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.

Frontier City Strategies for Boston Harbor

Adriaan Geuze and Daniel Vasini

Frontier City documents a landscape architecture studio that envisioned a new urban landscape on the Boston waterfront. Students reconceived the city as an adaptive, proactive urban infrastructure based on the dockland warehouse typology, and reimagined urban streetscapes and resilient landscapes. Inter­ facing with the landscape of the Boston Harbor, the new districts are defined by the form and function of public space; they accommodate future growth and stimulate an urban renaissance within the city of Boston. Guidelines for architectural character, and for the development of the urban grid, block typologies, and street profile will integrate a resilient landscape, and create an opportunity to invent another kind of nature.

Brick: Thick/Thin

31

Frano Violich

Brick: Thick/Thin explores a paradox: the architecture discipline constructed the idea of brick as a contemporary building material, but the notion of thickness has been replaced by a desire for the opposite—transparency and thinness. The work presented here examines the role that this ubiquitous material plays in an increasingly global and digitized world of material production. Studio participants researched and reconsidered archetypal brick detailing techniques, and then shifted to design the Taller Metropolitana de Bogotá (TAMBO), a regional design center and creative live/work incubator in the historic center of Colombia’s “City of Brick.”

Retooling Metropolis Working Landscapes, Emergent Urbanism

32

Chris Reed

What is the status of the 20th-century metropolis? How do we rethink it—and retool it— in an era of significant climate change, considerable social and economic inequities, and cultural dissonance? And what of this in a disciplinary age when conversations on urbanism are likely to be better informed by ideas of inde­ terminacy, dynamism, operational ecologies and landscape, and emergence over time? These questions guided the studio work in Retooling Metropolis, which examines possibilities for cultivating new landscape occupations and new forms of nascent urbanism in an area of Houston marked by large-scale abandonment, some active heavy industry, remnant poor neighborhoods, industrial ruins, denuded ecologies, contaminated lands, and a radically transformed hydrologic system.

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.
