Harvard Design Magazine 48: America
|Author||Julie Cirelli Ed.|
This issue of ‘Harvard Design Magazine’ takes as its theme the slippery and ambiguous figure of “America”, seen through the lens of the built and unbuilt environment. Americanisation, once bent on pressing capitalist values on emerging economies everywhere, is now in retreat, eclipsed by more urgent domestic concerns of pandemic, racial injustice, and radicalisation. The issue features a new design and art direction by Alexis Mark and invites urban planners, (landscape) architects, artists, historians, theorists, and more to reflect on the nation’s past and present, and to imagine sustainable futures. With contributions by Zoë Ryan, Mark Lee, Ana María León, and many more.
