The GSD draws on its rich history of design innovation to address unprecedented demands on our cities and infrastructure, the environment, and our society as a whole. We are both grounded and visionary, exploring lofty ideals and pragmatic realities. We seek simple answers to spectacular questions, and we encourage wild creativity alongside rigorous practice. Giving form to this dynamic tension of ideas is as important a role as any with which we are tasked.
This is no small project, but one that calls on the full extent of our talents and the commitment of our entire community. I invite you to embrace our vision, and help us shape a more equitable, sustainable, and beautiful world.
No matter the size, every gift has an impact. On behalf of everyone at the GSD, thank you for your engagement and support of our important work.
—Mohsen Mostafavi, Dean and Alexander and Victoria Wiley Professor of Design
