Platform 8 catalogs a curated selection? of work generated in the past year at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Alongside final products of design education, Platform 8 places particular emphasis on collecting and documenting the people and artifacts that shape research-driven design practices. Here, design is presented both as process and as a final product. The book's indexical structure, punctuated with a collection of portraits, presents a comprehensive picture of the school. Platform 8 shows the intention, direction, and passion seen and experienced every day at the GSD.

Editorial Reviews

"Richly illustrated and structured as an encyclopedic survey in which entriesare presented alphabetically, from academia to zoo, this book exposes a particular moment of design culture at the Harvard Graduate School anddocuments both scholarly discourse and material production as concomitant artifacts of contemporary practice, design, education, and academic research.Each edition of Platform -- the annual publication of the Harvard University Graduate School of Design -- aims to present the diversity of designand research projects produced at the school. Collaborating in its production are well-known architects, landscape architects, and designers, and theorists.This volume uses the concept of the index as a means to navigate the multiple layers of concepts incorporated within the work. Both text and image appear aspictures of processes, pedagogies, and products of design." --Eithne O'Leyne, ProtoView
