Design Discovery Virtual (DDV) is a three-week virtual academic program that engages a global audience of individuals 18 years old to mid-career professionals interested in an introduction to design, its media and methods, across the three disciplines of Architecture, Landscape, and Urban Planning + Design. U.S. and international citizens are invited to apply.

The program explores the potentials of design to address a series of relevant contemporary issues within the built environment. Program participants benefit from a cross-disciplinary lens on the collaborative development of design responses to weekly topics through visual communication with an emphasis on digital media for design drawing and modeling. Participants are also exposed to the wide range of perspectives about the built environment that this program’s global audience offers. This program is taught by a diverse group of Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD) faculty, masters, and doctoral degree program graduates and includes interaction with a broad network of design talent invited to serve as guest lecturers and critics for the program.
