A Vision for Creating, Collecting, and Sharing Student Perspectives on Planning…

The Urban Forum is a digital urban planning journal run by Master in Urban Planning students at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Our publication serves as compilation of critical engagements with themes relevant to planning and their social, economic or environmental implications. We collect and share ideas from urban planning, design, and architecture students at schools across the U.S., seeking to create a cross-institutional dialogue between students of the built environment.

A Goal to Gather Ideas on Planning Across the Nation…

To critically engage with issues relevant to planning through a range of creative formats; to create, collect and publish discourse among the planning and design community as well as the wider public of the multiplicity of ideas, interests, and perspectives reflecting students of planning and urbanism both in and outside of the GSD. Our Spring 2019 Edition includes ideas from students at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, MIT Department of Urban Studies and Planning, University of Michigan, and Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.

A Look at Our Spring 2019 Content…

The Spring 2019 Edition includes diverse content reflecting the goals and interests of students of planning, urban design, architecture, and political science. These articles fall broadly into four topics: encountering structures of power, empathizing with the everyday, engaging in critical discourse, and envisioning the future. This wide range of content includes personal reflections on protest art in Palestine, Participatory Planning in Buenos Aires, the ethics of Sustainable Development metrics, as well as more critical reflections on planning education and practice. The pieces were gathered in a December 2019 call for content and selected with the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief and the Editorial Board at the Harvard GSD.
