The more stuff we accumulate, the more space we need to store it all. Vast portions of the landscape are occupied and governed by spaces for storage, their maintenance, and the goods that move through them or remain buried within them indefinitely. The latest issue of Harvard Design Magazine investigates and unpacks the contents, containers, and systems of storage that organize our world. Contributors to “Shelf Life” will discuss contemporary forms of storage (digital, financial, corporeal), and how they are linked to our landscape, our economy, our culture, and our emotions. Quick-fire presentations will be moderated by Jennifer Sigler, editor in chief of publications & Harvard Design Magazine.
With Shannon Mattern, Antonio Furgiuele, Susan Nigra Snyder, Mark Mulligan, Rania Ghosn, and Andrew Holder.
