Harvard Design, Issue 49 – Publics

225 SEK
Sold out.

Relaunched in summer 2014, Harvard Design Magazine probes beyond the established design disciplines to enrich and diversify current discourse. Scholarly, poetic, and visually lush, each issue triggers new interpretations of design’s defining role in today’s culture. Distinguished and unexpected voices from the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning meet those from the realms of art, science, literature, and beyond. A space for dialogue, speculation, and surprise: Harvard Design Magazine opens a door onto the applied device of design, and the people, places, and politics it engages.

In this issue:

Harvard Design Magazine 49: Publicsintegrates theoretical and spatial debates over the topic of public space and design, using the world’s tense contemporary moment and contested near-future to question who holds the power to define what is public; what roles class, ethnicity, and other identity matrices play in the concept of the public; and how the core idea of a public may survive—or atrophy—given looming environmental crises and deepening political and economic divisions. Ultimately, the issue asks how a public is constructed and shaped through design and cultural production.
Collaborating with Editorial Director Julie Cirelli and Publications Manager Meghan Ryan Sandberg, Berrizbeitia and Davis invited design critics and practitioners from within the Harvard Graduate School of Design and beyond. The magazine’s introductory essays and conversations include contributions from Walter Hood, Sara Zewde, Elijah Anderson, Bonnie Honig, and architectural collective Assemble.
