Mobilizing for 2011

Our committee has ambitious plans for 2011. More community events, more educational efforts, and more advocacy than ever before. 

THEMES: Raise the profile of architecture within the AIA Austin region. / Cosponsor events other groups.

OUTREACH EVENTS: January- Architects at Capitol Day / February- Quarterly meeting with City council and aides. / March- Code Session with City of Austin Plan Review / April- Candidate Forum / October- Affordable Housing Summit 

Austin's adopted codes: explained!

What are these new codes that the City of Austin has adopted? Is Austin’s version different from other cities? Do we need to change how we design buildings?     For our October committee meeting we hosted several key plan review and inspection officials from the City of Austin- Jose Roig, J.B. Meier, Ron Menard, Carl Wren, and Joe Limon. They presented slides, videos, and handouts to shine some light on where the building and fire codes have changed this month.     I will mention a few items here, and link to the full powerpoint presentations.

IH-35 Corridor Tunnels and Alternates

Our September topic included future transportation options along the IH-35 corridor.  Comparisons and alternatives included a sunken roadway section, a tunnel, and a boulevard.  Particularly of note was the discussion on rail—on the surface, within a tunnel, or along other corridors altogether.
