This is the story of an extraordinary man and design professional, Hideo Sasaki, who was also a long time Lexington resident. Mr. Sasaki fostered a broad vision of the concept of collaborative design through his teaching at Harvard, his public service in Washington on the Fine Arts Commission and as adviser to university presidents and prominent American families; a vision that is carried out today through the legacy of the professional service firm that he founded in 1953, Sasaki Associates.

Five of Mr Sasaki's existing and former partners will tell the story in the context of the american tradition of collaborative design which had its beginnings with the assembly of design professionals for the 1891 World Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Presenters: Richard Galehouse, Stu Dawson, David Hirzel, Fred Merrill, and Don Olson.
