Harvard's Dapper Dean
The Boston Globe counts Graduate School of Design dean Mohsen Mostafavi among the city’s most stylish denizens.
Harvard may not have a reputation as the most fashionable place, but this morning, one of our own landed on the list of the 25 most stylish Bostonians compiled by the Boston Globe: Graduate School of Design dean Mohsen Mostafavi.
In the accompanying interview, Mostafavi muses about similarities and differences between fashion and architecture:
I think one thing that’s very interesting about fashion is its immediacy and the fact that you can see things and you can test things very quickly. Architecture, unfortunately, is very slow. In fashion they create a prototype, and you see it and you touch it and you can make a decision. In architecture, if we could emulate that process, it would make some things easier.
For those who aren’t up for flipping through the entire slideshow, here’s the direct link to the Mostafavi interview.
Harvard Magazine profiled Mostafavi last year; read that article here.
