doctor of philosophy
The PhD program in Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning is one of twelve interfaculty programs administered jointly by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences with other Harvard graduate schools.
Attempting to understand how built space affects the people who live within it, and, conversely, how social, political and cultural values affect the choices we make in designing space, is the basic goal of the PhD program. One might say that our program attempts—in very different ways and with a range of techniques—to interpret the dreams of societies from the spaces that different societies build. We examine the built environment as a mode of cultural production. We use rigorously developed categories and concepts from other fields to open up new possible interpretations.
