Pairs is a student-edited journal of conversations at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design (GSD).

Each issue pairs “subjects” (interviewees) with “objects” (archival, material things from Harvard, the GSD, or outside archive), and has a conversation. The journal does not have a theme, but instead organizes a diversity of threads and concerns relevant to our moment in the design disciplines. The conversations are in turn not comprehensive accounts but open-ended exchanges, eliciting often candid and provisional ideas in progress; a space for a greater degree of exchange between students, guests, and a larger public.

Pairs was founded by students Nicolás Delgado Álcega, Vladimir Gintoff, and Kimberley Huggins in 2019 with the support of Dean Sarah M. Whiting and the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Pairs is published by the GSD and distributed by Harvard University Press.

A new issue of Pairs is released every fall and applications open for Editor and Contributor roles to all active GSD students every spring. *As of February 2022: Issue 03 is expected in September and recruiting for Issue 04 begins in April.*
