The Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD) is among the most internationally renowned institutes of higher education for design and focuses primarily on architecture. Recently, the GSD announced the creation of Harvard Design Press, a publishing imprint affiliated with the school. The imprint will work alongside Harvard University Press with the goal of supporting the various fields and disciplines of design and promoting opportunities to create a more resilient, just and beautiful world through design. The imprint aims to publish new, original ideas from research and practice in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning and urban design in order to reinforce Harvard GSD’s reputation as a leading institution combatting the difficult design problems that the world faces today. The subjects under its purview range from housing, climate change and social justice to urban ecology, design engineering and architectural theory and history.

“Long committed to the value of the written word for advancing the design disciplines as well as for broadening design’s impact, I am personally very excited about this new direction for the school’s book-publishing program,” said dean of Harvard GSD Sarah M. Whiting, who is also a member of the Harvard Design Press Editorial Board. Harvard Design Press, which is led by Ken Steward and Marielle Suba, is seeking book proposals from researchers and practitioners in all branches of the design community. The imprint’s first publications are slated to appear in autumn 2022, beginning with Split Subject – a monograph on the work of architect Frida Escobedo. The imprint is supported by an editorial advisory board composed of faculty members from the GSD and associated disciplines at Harvard University.
