Irvine) investigates the ways in which values become embodied in technological design and what efforts we might make to challenge maladaptive structures.
Harvard recently announced the finalists in the inaugural Deans’ Cultural Entrepreneurship Challenge, and GSD teams are well represented with an array of innovative ideas.
