Harvard Design Magazine (ISSN 1093-4421) is a biannual publication of the Harvard Graduate School of Design. It is indexed by all of the standard subject bibliographies, including Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals, Bibliography of the History of Art, and Artbibliographies Modern. Harvard Design Magazine is a registered nonprofit organization.

Harvard Design Magazine was founded in 1997 by former editor William S. Saunders (1997–2012), and until 2001 was co-edited by Nancy Levinson. In 2013, Jennifer Sigler became the magazine's Editor in Chief, together with Leah Whitman-Salkin, Associate Editor, and Meghan Ryan Sandberg, Publications Coordinator.

In 2014, the magazine was redesigned, with Jiminie Ha as creative director, and launched at the 14th International Architecture Biennale in Venice. The new magazine probes beyond the established design disciplines to enrich and diversify current discourse. Distinguished and unexpected voices from the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning meet those from the realms of art, science, and literature.

Current Issue: "Do You Read Me?"[edit]

Harvard Design Magazine Issue 38, "Do You Read Me?"

“Do You Read Me?” marks a new direction for Harvard Design Magazine—one that invites “reading” across disciplinary boundaries, and stakes out an expanded arena for architecture and design dialogue. This issue is about reading and misreading, and the role of design in streamlining or garbling the exchange between sender and receiver, writer and reader, maker and user. “Do You Read Me?” suggests that the role of design is not just to construct certitudes, to clarify, but also to enable more nuanced realities to coexist. It includes writings by Mohsen Mostafavi, Homi K. Bhabha, Sanford Kwinter, Malkit Shoshan, Alexandra Lange, Philippe Rahm, and Kazys Varnelis, among many others.
