DIALOG Announces Antonio Gómez-Palacio as New Chair
DIALOG has announced Antonio Gómez-Palacio as the new Chair of the firm. A DIALOG Partner since 2010, Antonio succeeds Jim Anderson, who has served as Chair since 2015.
The firm states that Jim will return to practice as a DIALOG Partner, “focusing on key and strategic projects with a special emphasis on carbon neutral retrofits and adaptive re-use of existing building stock.”
Antonio’s professional experience has focused on the intersection — and integration — of design disciplines. He has worked with cities, universities, public institutions, transit agencies, developers, and communities from coast-to-coast and internationally.
He has acted as chair of the Toronto Society of Architects, and Vaughan’s Design Review Panel, and has lent his voice to a variety of advocacy organizations across North America.
“Antonio is a voice for making a difference,” says Jim Anderson. “His passion and his ability to enthusiastically and clearly articulate ideas — and to listen to the ideas of others — embodies what DIALOG is all about. I’m excited for the next step in our journey.”
“DIALOG is a collection of creative, innovative thought leaders, who are constantly rising up to meet the challenges of the day, from climate change and equity to social wellbeing,” says Antonio Gómez-Palacio. “I’m honored to build on the stewardship that Jim has exemplified. At DIALOG, leadership is not about personalities or individuals, it’s fundamentally a collaborative and purpose-driven endeavor.”
