What is New Geographies?
New Geographies is a journal of design, agency, territory, founded and produced by doctoral candidates at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. New Geographies aims to examine the emergence of the geographic, a new but for the most part latent paradigm in design today — to articulate it and bring it to bear effectively on the social role of design. Through critical essays and design projects, New Geographies seeks to position design's agency amid concerns of scale, infrastructure, ecology, and globalisation, with the 'geographic' condition reflecting a desire for a synthetic scalar practice that links attributes understood to be either separate from each other or external to the design disciplines, opening through tat a range of technical, formal and social repertoires for architecture.
