The Harvard University Graduate School of Design is dedicated to the education and development of design professionals in architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, and urban design. With a commitment to design excellence that demands the skillful manipulation of form and technology and draws inspiration from a broad range of social, environmental, and cultural issues, the Harvard Graduate School of Design provides leadership for shaping the built environment of the twenty-first century.
Harvard GSD also supports a variety of awards including the Richard Rogers Fellowship, a research-focused residency program based in London at the Wimbledon House, and the Wheelwright Prize, a travel-based research grant designed to spur innovative design practices.
GSD recently announced an expansion project for its iconic Gund Hall by Herzog & de Meuron with Beyer Blinder Belle which will take shape in the coming years.
The School is also recognized for its dynamic exhibitions and public programming. A regular speaker series consistently draws the best names from an array of disciplines, from Virgil Abloh and Raf Simons to Paola Antonelli and Naoto Fukasawa, and publications such as
the bi-annual Harvard Design Magazine to enrich and diversify current discourse around architecture, design and technology.
