Minoru Yamasaki, a Seattle native born in 1912, was a pivotal 20th-century architect known for his serene designs. From humble beginnings, Yamasaki aspired to use architecture to uplift humanity, an example of which was his design for the United States Science Pavilion at Expo 1962 Seattle – what is now the Pacific Science Center.

In the latest episode of Mossback's Northwest, Cascade PBS’s resident historian Knute Berger looks back at Yamasaki’s early life and work, highlighting how his work countered the era's minimalist trends with elegance.

Yamasaki’s life and legacy are further discussed in a dedicated podcast episode featuring Knute Berger and Stephen Hegg.
