Intersection and Convergences
A convergence of ideas, technologies and environmental imperatives challenge the design field as the new millennium unfolds. In the very thick of these epic changes is Sasaki Associates, an inter-disciplinary design firm with exceptional depth and breadth
Foreword by Susan S. Szenasy, Metropolis Magazine Editor-in-Chief
Sasaki: Intersection and Convergence is a comprehensive, richly-illustrated publication that describes the depth and geographic breadth of the firm’s work. The book’s “Spaces and Learning” section details plans, buildings and landscapes that capture future possibilities of universities. “Regenerative Cities” focuses on transformative new uses and neighborhoods from Ho Chi Minh City to Chicago. “New Social Realities” chronicles designs informed by contemporary changes in human habitation, technology and lifestyle.
Born as a unique interdisciplinary firm at the height of the modernist era in the early 1950s, Sasaki has evolved into a firm that thrives on collaboration amongst the disciplines. At once global and cosmopolitan, sustainable and strategic, Sasaki’s projects are as varied and multi-layered as the clients and communities they serve. “(The firm’s) projects pay close attention to the natural and cultural environments they occupy” writes Susan S. Szenasy in her foreword.
