The Laboratory for Design Technologies (LDT) is a collaborative platform that brings together Harvard University’s research units with a select group of industry advisors to engage in forward-looking, speculative, and imaginative research. Over the past year (Fall 2019-Fall 2020), discussions and working sessions with the advisors, faculty, and researchers have enriched and informed the direction of LDT research, including the production of two research books, ON FLYING: A Toolkit and the Atlas of Urban Air Mobility.
Participating industry members include…
Advanced International Multitech Co., Ltd.
Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences
Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport)
Perkins and Will
In addition to the Industry Advisors Group, LDT regularly invites guest participants to further enrich the LDT network and discussions. Past and current participants include representatives from Boston Dynamics, Steelcase, Aurora Flight Sciences, CetraRuddy, New Story, Transcend Aero, JP Morgan, and Volkswagen.
