Harvard Design Magazine
A biannual publication of the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, Harvard Design Magazine probes beyond the reaches of the established design disciplines to enrich and challenge current design discourse. Incisively themed, visually lush, refreshingly diverse: each issue provokes new understandings of our culture and design’s defining role. A space of dialogue, the publication hosts both preeminent and unexpected voices from the fields of architecture, landscape architecture and urban planning, as well as the realms of art, science, literature, politics and beyond. Harvard Design Magazine opens a door onto the applied device of design, and the people, places, and politics it engages. View the HDM website for more info and to subscribe.
