Saiki Design, entering its 30th year, is an ongoing experiment in the practice of landscape architecture. Ken will speak to the firm’s business model and guiding principles; and how they have created a platform for an award-winning design practice.

For those struggling to determine what to do in the current social, political and environmental climate – smaller acts of design can engage and create lasting social and environmental change with rippling effects. Anne Schopf, FAIA, will share the success her practice has had using discreet, local interventions to tackle the issues that face us on a national scale. From the creation of the shelter design toolbox, Building Dignity, for Washington State survivors of domestic violence, to the design of a traditional smokehouse to support the re-emerging Seowyn faith of the Muckleshoot Tribe, this lecture will explore the social imperative of architecture and our role in questioning the status quo.
