Jim Anderson is a compulsively curious architect who leads the DIALOG Toronto studio’s commercial sector team. His tendency to oscillate between big-picture thinking and detailed scrutiny demonstrates his ability to understand projects from multiple perspectives. As former National Operations Principal and Toronto Studio Managing Principal, Jim is now undertaking his most significant role to date, Chair of DIALOG. As Chair, Jim will use his considerable experience to guide DIALOG along its strategic path to achieve its vision as a truly integrated practice. Jim believes deeply in this multidisciplinary vision, both at work, where he uses collaborative design to build stronger communities; and at home, where he enjoys an abundance of diverse pursuits from coaching hockey to tree planting to running marathons.
