Pairs is a journal of conversations edited by students at the Harvard GSD. Each issue pairs subjects with objects: interviewees with contents from a Harvard or external archive. The journal does not have a theme, but instead organizes a diversity of threads and concerns relevant to our moment in the design disciplines: covering architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design and planning. The conversations are in turn not comprehensive accounts but open-ended exchanges, eliciting often candid and provisional ideas in progress.
Pairs 03 features conversations with Thomas Demand, Marianela D’Aprile, Mindy Seu, Mira Henry & Matthew Au, Stéphanie Bru & Alexandre Thériot, Edward Eigen, Kevin Young, Ila Bêka & Louise Lemoine, Alfredo Thiermann, Katarina Burin, Marrikka Trotter, Mack Scogin Merrill Elam & Helen Han, Christopher C. M. Lee, Keller Easterling, Ilse & Heinrich Wolff, and Charlotte Malterre-Barthes.
Contributors include students Elif Erez, Emily Hsee, Linda Just, Stephanie Lloyd, Andrea Sandell, Kenismael Santiago-Págan, Klelia Siska, Julia Spackman, and Raphi Tayvah.
Pairs 03 was edited by Olivia Howard, Adrea Piazza, and Kyle Winston with the support of Dean Sarah M. Whiting and the Harvard GSD.
