James Dayton in Conversation with Thomas Fisher


Flash must be enabled to see the video player.

As a recipient of a 2005 Young Architects Award from the AIA Minnesota, James Dayton has earned a reputation for innovative architecture that combines an inventive palette of industrial materials in a collage of complex forms. Returning to Minneapolis after five years working in the office of Frank Gehry, Dayton received important commissions such as the Minnetonka Center for the Arts, a competition-winning project for the St. Paul waterfront, and the MacPhail Center for Music in Minneapolis. Join Dayton and Thomas Fisher, dean of the College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture at the University of Minnesota, for a stimulating discussion about the way that this design office is reshaping the architectural language of the Twin Cities.
