Harrington College of Design’s Journal originally began as a conduit for Harrington’s faculty from all programs (Interior Design, Communication Design and Photography) to publish and communicate their ideas, thoughts and scholarship around design analysis within Chicago’s academic community. Today the Journal has grown to include select Harrington student essays and seeks to open up discussion of design ideas.

As catalyst and founder of the Journal, Harrington Interior Design Instructor Constantine Vasilios has worked each year to pull the publication together. As Constantine explains, “The essays from the faculty Journal approach subject matter from various points of view … As in all inquiries, the Journal causes more questions to arise that provoke avenues of subsequent exploration.”

Just a few of the articles within this year’s edition include “Space Thresholds” by Constantine Vasilios, “Space and Infinity” by Jeffrey M. Janes, “Poetic of the Primaries” by Peter Klick, and “The Work itself is Silent” by Duffy O’Connor.

Copies of Harrington’s Journal are sent every year to leading design firms in Chicago, with a special copy sent each year to the Mayor of Chicago.
