Description

GSD Platform 2 provides a sampling of the most salient research and design explorations undertaken at the Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD) during the 2008-2009 academic year. Organised thematically, the publication identifies underlying congruencies among studio work, theses, research, lectures, conferences, and writings to unfold some of the many critical ideas and interests currently being explored in the School. Ranging in scope from detailed material fabrication to large-scale territorial and infrastructural strategies, the work spans a broad and diverse set of geographies and scenarios. In documenting this work, the publication archives and disseminates the rich intellectual momentum of the GSD.

With contributions by Dirk Sijmons, Sissel Tolaas, Scheri Fultiner, Louisa Hutton, Matthias Sauerbruch, Judith Grant Long, Jose Luis Vallejo / Belinda Tato, Joshua Prince Ramus, Chris Reed, among others.
