From the Preface, by Mohsen Mostafavi:

The Harvard Graduate School of Design prides itself on the wide scope of its global aspirations, collaborations, and projects. As a School, we are deeply interested in the conditions giving rise to new topics that benefit from the design imagination of our students and faculty across a range of fields and practices. This approach is not so much new as it is intentional, forming a deliberate cornerstone of our mission and pedagogy. We wish for our work to be transformative in multiple locations and in richly varied geographies, societies, economies, cultures, and political circumstances. The projects presented in this book all play their part in taking up this planetary imperative.
