The College of Architecture is pleased to announce Bradford Prestbo, director of technical resources at Sasaki, will be the next Hyde speaker giving a lecture entitled "LEARNING BY MAKING: How Maker Culture is Transforming a Design Practice".

For this lecture, Prestbo will examine the “maker movement” and how Sasaki applies the method’s principles and practices to stimulate the creativity of a traditional design firm by using hands-on exercises, prototyping and digital design to extract the best design solutions and ideas from everyone in the organization. The maker movement is changing the way Sasaki goes to market and how it is helping the practice win new business.

In addition to Prestbo’s contributions at Sasaki, he co-founded the Boston Society of Architect's MakeTANK Committee and frequently participates as a design critic at area colleges and universities and lectures on detailing and bringing maker culture back into the design process.

Prestbo’s employer, Sasaki, is an international design firm with professionals who are engaged in architecture, interior design, planning, urban design, landscape architecture, strategic planning, graphic design and civil engineering. In the past six decades, Sasaki has garnered over 500 national and international design awards across all firm disciplines.

Prestbo’s lecture will be held in the Auditorium of the Sheldon Art Museum, UNL city campus, Wednesday, October, 11th at 4 pm. For questions, email Kerry McCullough-Vondrak at
