This is where the creative, methodological processes of design meet real world constraints of development. Students from any school at Harvard are encouraged to enroll, bringing pupils from Harvard Kennedy School (HKS), Harvard Law School (HLS) and the like into groups with architects, urban designers, landscape architects, and urban planners from the Graduate School of Design (GSD). The result is consistently a plethora of creative, yet grounded ideas for solving difficult real-world urban conditions. The final research is presented to the stakeholders of the project to invoke a lively debate, muster public enthusiasm, or possibly even be implemented.</p><p>Each semester, there are 2 field studies - one locally based around Boston, and the other, anywhere around the globe.

Currently, the trope of describing design disciplines, and many forms of marketing and new media, in terms of "narratives" and "stories" has become quite pronounced (sometimes <a href="http://www.creativereview.co.uk/cr-blog/2014/july/sagmeister-storytelling" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">derisively so</a>). But as set pieces on the world stage, architecture holds great sway in determining whatever "urban narratives" arise. To the panelists, composed of professors and practitioners in both film and architecture, architecture's kindred narrative art is naturally film, as they are both time-based media, and visually oriented. The discussion turned to how architectural design can be used as elements in city storytelling, and in turn, how film can tell that story with architecture.</p><p>Moderated by University of Virginia architecture professor (and <a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/88814/kim-tanzer-appointed-next-dean-at-uva-soa" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">former dean</a>) Kim Tanzer, the panel was populated by Edward Dimendberg (professor...</p> http://www.bustler.net/index.php/description/zgf_scholarship_2015/ ZGF Scholarship 2015 2014-11-26T20:36:00-05:00 >2014-11-26T20:36:39-05:00 <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html> http://archinect.com/news/article/114594762/the-architecture-of-the-hunger-games-horns-of-plenty The Architecture of the Hunger Games' Horns of Plenty Archinect 2014-11-26T19:44:00-05:00 >2014-11-27T13:54:43-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/2e/2ed7ebd8afe12d451c14589663876639.jpg" width="514" height="386" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>&ldquo;We looked at Frank Gehry designs and a lot of modern architecture with folded planes and fractalized surfaces and kind of riffed on all of that.
