Each spring, the Boston Architectural College appoints a Distinguished Visiting Critic to conduct an advanced studio for those seeking to study with highly accomplished design practitioners. A grant from the Hideo Sasaki Foundation has enabled the BAC to appoint the founding principal of Brian Healy Architects, as the 2009 Hideo Sasaki Distinguished Visiting Critic.

Brian Healy embodies the values of Hideo Sasaki, fostering collaboration and integration across the design disciplines of landscape architecture, architecture and interior design.

The programs of the Hideo Sasaki Foundation are funded by a trust established by Sasaki Associates, Inc., and family, friends and colleagues of Hideo Sasaki. Hideo Sasaki was internationally respected as a landscape architect, planner, teacher and mentor. He instilled the firm he founded with a spirit of critical thinking and open inquiry. He pioneered the concept of interdisciplinary planning and design. Hideo insisted that every project be put in its cultural, historical, geographical, environmental, social and economic context.
