Open Letters
Printed biweekly—Harvard GSD

Open Letters is a print experiment that tests the epistolary form as a device for generating conversations about architecture, landscape, urbanism, and design.

New issues are released in print at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and publicly as part of our digital archive ideally every two weeks. Each issue consists of one open letter (i.e. addressed to a specific party but intended for public dissemination) that relates in some way to a design topic of choice. Correspondents may be from within or outside the GSD.

The views and ideas expressed in letters published by Open Letters are those of the correspondents and do not necessarily reflect those of the editors, the publication, or any affiliated institutions.
