The Harvard GSD fall lecture program will start this Thursday evening, September 4, with a lecture by architect Bjarke Ingels. Among other highlights of this semester...
The interdisciplinary team composed of Judith Rodríguez (MLA/MAUD ’13), research associate for the Zofnass Program for Sustainable Infrastructure, and Abner L. Calixter, research associate for GSD Exuma, was selected finalist for the Mojdeh Baratloo Urban Urge Awards 2014 for their proposal titled "CAJU - Refresca São Paulo."
Gia Wolff (MArch ’08) can draw a line from her interest in “spectacle, performance, scale and experience”–which she explored in her GSD thesis project–to her winning 2013 Wheelwright Prize proposal, to her current installation in the Tate Modern’s “Up Hill Down Hall: An indoor carnival.”
Among the “9 Women Who Are Rocking Public Interest Design” listed in Architizer last week are 3 GSD alums and a Loeb Fellow. Liz Ogbu (MArch ‘04), Marika Shioiri-Clark (MArch ’11), Chelina Odbert (MUP ’07) and Deanna VanBuren (LF ’12) are in practice, in academia and even in prisons–building, convening, researching and listening to the needs of communities to tackle social problems on every continent.

Caroline James (MArch ’14) was at the 2014 Venice Biennale to view the outcome of 2 Rotterdam studios abroad, additional student engagement and her own summer internship with Rem Koolhaas’s (professor in practice of architecture and urban design) AMO studio to put together the “Elements of Architecture” book and exhibition. She found a rigorous presentation of the human relationship to architecture and a wholly new approach to the Biennale itself. Read her post in the LOEBlog.
