A provocative article by Mohsen Mostafavi, in the current (March 2009) issue of Harvard Design Magazine.
Mostafavi became Dean of the School of Design at Harvard in 2008. Previously, among other positions, he was Chairman of the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London for 8 years. He was born in Iran.
He maintains a “global consulting practice.” My question – how does he do it all? How can a single person take on the responsibilities as Dean at Harvard GSD and also maintain an active architectural office? Yet, if he was not in practice, his value as an educator would undoubtedly diminish.
