  • A Plan for Lexington Center (Feb 1966). This represents a blueprint for the redesign of the Lexington center at the and of the 1960s and the beginning of the 1970s - this is the decade when Lexington center acquired its current street and sidewalk design, with its distinctive promenade with two rows of small trees. The plan was developed by the then-Planning Board and by the Town Committee to Study the Revitalization of the Lexington Center. The design advisory group included Norman Fletcher, member of The Architects Collaborative and of the Six Moon Hill association, and also collaborator of Walter Gropius; and Walter S. Pierce, designer of Peacock Farm; and landscape architect Hideao Sasaki.
