Sasaki's work delves into virtually every area of the built environment, from planning and urban design to architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, civil engineering and graphic design. In gestures large and small, Sasaki's work evinces a belief that creativity finds its highest expression in satisfying the human need for civic engagement, environmental responsibility, utility and beauty. As detailed here, it is at the intersection of the multiple design disciplines that the most unexpected--and effective--design strategies are formulated, tested and executed.

Description: Contemporary architects are under increasing pressure to offer a sustainable future. But with all the focus on green building there has been little investigation into the meaningful connections between architectural design, ecological systems, and environmentalism. A new generation of architects, landscape architects, designers, and engineers aims to recalibrate what humans do in the world according to how the world works as a biophysical system. Design in this sense is a larger concept having to do as much with politics and ethics as with aesthetics and technology. This recasting of the green movement for the twenty-first century transforms design into a positive agent balancing societal values with environmental needs.
