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.
