Pairs

Pairs is a student-led journal at the Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD) dedicated to conversations about design that are down to earth and unguarded. Each issue is conceptualized by an editorial team—including GSD students—that proposes guests and objects to be in dialogue with one another. Pairs is non-thematic, meant instead for provisional thoughts and ideas in progress. Each issue seeks to organize diverse threads and concerns that are perceived to be relevant to our moment. Thus, Pairs creates a space for understanding and a greater degree of exchange, both between the design disciplines and with a larger public.
