The Products of Practice is a research project that critically mines historic systems of representation and the product (or media) of the architect in relationship to the evolving societal role of the discipline, practice, and profession with the goal of projecting practice futures.

Housed within the Harvard Graduate School of Design, PoP is a collective and longitudinal professional practice research endeavor conducted by students across the fields of architecture and urbanism. 





Within the cacophony of contemporary media, under the pressures of financial instruments, and with an expectation of artificial intelligence, PoP looks to the past to explore the product of the architect as an artifact of circumstance, framing and projecting practice potentials now and into the future. Critically tracking the development of our practice, it aims to research design context and representational formats as cultural and temporal constructs that limit or expand the role of the architect in practice. Our collective goal is an exploration of the relationship between – and the limits of – discipline, practice, and profession to better understand their structural potentials.
