“Five on Five”

“Five on Five” is a series of conversations organized by The Architecture Department at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design where architects are invited to present five projects that have been pivotal in their body of work.

Taking the accumulation of experience and knowledge as a starting point , the conversations are titled after the series of polemical essays published in Architectural Forum in the 1970’s.

“Five on Five” features architects of different backgrounds or generations presenting five projects of theirs or of others. The live conversations continues the tradition of architects responding to and taking issues on the positions of others and will be open to the GSD community and the wider public audience.
