Pairs is a journal of conversations edited by students at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design (GSD). Each issue pairs subjects with objects: interviewees with contents from an archive. It does not have a theme, but instead organizes a diversity of threads and concerns relevant to our moment in the design disciplines: covering architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design and planning. The conversations are in turn not comprehensive accounts but open-ended exchanges, eliciting often candid and provisional ideas in progress.

Pairs 04 features conversations with Danielle Aubert, Melanie Boehi, Fernanda Canales, Theaster Gates, Stefanie Hessler, Eric Robsky Huntley, Ryan W. Kennihan, Yasmeen Lari, Mae-ling Lokko, Þóra Pétursdóttir, Sergio Lopez-Pineiro, Shannon Mattern, Jeffrey Shaw, Kate Wagner, and Emily Wettstein.

Contributors include students Rain Chan, Sophie Weston Chien, Liz Cormack, Syeda Aimen Fatima, Emily Hsee, Areti Kotsoni, Jennifer Li, Sumayyah Súnmádé Raji, Julia Spackman, Raphaele Tayvah, CoCo Tin, and Audrey Watkins.
