“Data Across Scales: Reshaping Design” at Harvard GSD

On April 17, Harvard GSD will host this year’s annual interdisciplinary Doctoral Conference, “Data Across Scales: Reshaping Design.” The conference invites design reachers and practitioners to examine the role and potential of data in design. Particularly apt for the technology-centric times of present, “Data Across Scales” focuses on the proliferation of information technologies within personal and professional contexts.

“We produce, share, collect, archive, use and misuse, consciously or unconsciously an immense amount of data,” reads a statement on the conference’s website, “This burst of data production and collection has already had a profound impact on the way we organize ourselves as a community.” Read on to learn more.

Harvard GSD Talk and Exhibition “Housing in Extreme Environments: Alpine Shelter” Opens Tomorrow

The extreme climatic conditions of the North introduce a design paradox for architects. The fragile environmental conditions require incisive designs that respond to irregular loading from strong winds, heavy snowfalls, avalanche risk zones, and extreme cold. The studio investigated a prototypical design: a unit with sleeping and cooking space for up to eight people, on a mountain site in Slovenia. The talk (on Friday, February 13th) serves as an opening for the exhibition on this project, curated by Spela Videcnik, John T. Dunlop Design Critic in Housing and Urban Development, with Rok Oman, featuring the work of her Fall 2014 studio, displayed on the Experiments Wall (in Gund Hall). Construction of the shelter is planned for summer 2015. Learn more, after the break.
