Harvard 2014

Harvard University Graduate School of Design, Cambridge, Massachusetts

This two-day course July 28-July 29, 2014 was presented by Design Corps, SEED Network and the Graduate School of Design Harvard University Executive Education. The Institute will provide design and planning professionals with in-depth study on methods of how design can address the critical issues faced by communities. Training in public interest design is a way of enhancing an existing design practice and learning skills to become pro-actively engaged in community-based design. The curriculum is formed around the Social Economic Environmental Design (SEED) metric, a set of standards that outlines the process and principles of this growing approach to design. This process provides a step-by-step aid for those who want to undertake public interest design. Certification in the SEED process will be given.
