A year of research through studio work, theses, lectures, exhibitions and events at the Harvard University Graduate School of DesignReview:
"GSD Platform 5 represents years of research, exhibitions, and lectures based on events from the Harvard Graduate School of Design, and packs in insights on the expanded GSD and the works produced by the school during 2011-2012. Material represents only a small selection of the overall projects and includes discussions of the School's continuing commitment to architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning and design. Links between the design school's changing structure and evolving global trends make this a particularly important college-level analysis suitable for design and architectural studies alike." --California Bookwatch
