xDesign is comprised of two events over two days – a speaker series and a design challenge.
Both events start together on January 25th at Harvard GSD and continue in tandem on the 26th at Harvard Business School. The conference is open to general admission – a full day of talks from thought leaders in design. The challenge is a studio workshop of interdisciplinary teams – designers, students, faculty and professionals – who work on a particular challenge problem. The two events merge together on the evening of the 26th for the main panel, where design luminaries and professors critique the results of the design challenge in front of a live audience.
