Adriaan Geuze, principal at West 8, discusses the value of understanding first and designing for the cultural context in urban design projects. He explains how a focus on people, characters and narratives results in projects that have meaning beyond their functional requirements, and become part of the city’s life.

  5. The Harvard Graduate School of Design is most wildly ambitious, experimental, and optimistic design school on the world. It is a home to, and network of, creative visionaries. Visionaries bent on testing their ideas out in the world.

    We are Grounded Visionaries. Our curiosity and commitment to exploring complex challenges places us at the center of art, science, and action. We not only imagine a more beautiful, just, and coherent world, we go so far as to construct it.

    We will continue to ask why and what if. We will engage with society across all scales, from the individual to the global community. We will research, speculate, design, and lead.

    This is no small project. That's why we're doing it.

    Join us in giving form to the 21st century. Learn more at GroundedVisionaries.org
