Harvard Design Magazine 44 F/W Fall Winter 2017


ISBN13/Barcode: 0744705771194

It’s 2017. The millennium is in its teenage years—and it shows. The world is acting out—making rash, impulsive decisions whose repercussions may be irreparable. The body politic is moody, volatile, and uncompromising. We were born into Y2K and 9/11; our youth is part of a string of crises and rapid evolutions. Can the physical landscape weather our collective turmoil? Adolescence may be “just a phase,” but architecture, infrastructure, and policy are hard to undo.

What does it mean to be 17 in 2017? This issue of Harvard Design Magazine checks in with teens of all sorts—humans, buildings, objects, ideas—and their impact on the spatial imagination. Like a bildungsroman for the built environment, “Seventeen” dives into the treacherous, exhilarating limbo of the teen years to understand and reclaim this global adolescence.

Like all teenagers, we are asking: who are we, where do we fit in, and how can we, too, make our marks—as impactful designers and as an evolving discipline? In a divided, temperamental 2017, there is much to learn from the teenager.
The magazine, edited by Jennifer Sigler, combines contributions by noted critics and historians including AbdouMaliq Simone, Owen Hatherley, Eva Díaz, Sam Jacob, Beryl Satter, Charles L. Davis II, Lori Brown, Thomas Beller, and Sarah Williams Goldhagen; practitioners feminist architecture collaborative, Urban Think-Tank, Bryony Roberts, Jimenez Lai, and Jorge Otero-Pailos; as well as unexpected voices like illustrator Victoria Lomasko, artist Alex Israel with curator Hamza Walker, artists Olivia Erlanger and Luis Ortega Govela, author Lydia Davis, and many others.
