David Hayden “Desigins for Northern Latitudes” 7:00pm, April 8th
Award-winning architect David Hayden of L64 Design in Fairbanks will discuss challenges and missed opportunities of architecture in the North Country. Hayden has worked nearly two decades in Fairbanks, developing a style perhaps best described as “northern arboreal industrial” – a mix of modern materials and contemporary forms that reflects Alaska’s unique light and landscape.
Hayden has designed more than 40 buildings throughout Fairbanks and Alaska. While working at Charles Bettisworth and Company he designed the Birch Hill Ski lodge, the Wood Center entrance at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks and the Haines Ferry Terminal. He specializes in residences that include the ABC Extreme Makeover Home in North Pole. He has been an advocate for the Vision Fairbanks and is a board member of the Alaska Design Forum.
