Where did Minimalism go after the 1960s and '70s? While many visual artists
may have ended their investigations of elemental forms, architects and
designers continue to explore the possibilities of repetition, precision,
and the interaction of bodies in space. For this panel discussion, three
leading practitioners respond to trends in architecture and design that
make use of Minimalist vocabulary.
Panelists are: New York-based architect Richard Gluckman (whose practice
includes the design of several arts-related facilities such as the Andy
Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, and Site Santa Fe, New Mexico); Vince James,
Minneapolis-based architect and adjunct associate professor of Architecture
at the Harvard Design School; and Lisa Strausfeld, partner in Pentagram
Design, New York, and founder of Information Art, a studio specializing
in interaction design for public spaces. Moderated by Thomas Fisher, Dean
of the College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, University
of Minnesota. Information about the exhibition Elemental:
