GSD Platform 5

Harvard Graduate School of Design | Gund Hall, spring 2013

Exhibit Designer responsible for design, layout, construction + fabrication drawings

Developed as a working curation of the environment of the Graduate School of Design, the Platform 5 exhibition was designed to present various lenses through which to view the School in the academic year of 2011-2012, its present trajectories, and its future directions. The student work is repositioned to connect the work of the School through collections of like formats and processes of production.  The literal overlaps of the work in the exhibition, and perhaps unexpected adjacencies, reveal the complexities with which the design disciplines increasingly contend. The content displayed is encoded, using colored lines and work descriptions, with the categorized section where it may be found in the accompanying Platform 5 book. The result is a “barcode” of sorts, encrypted with the academic design investigations unique to this academic year.
