Urban Design

Year of the Advocate

Civic Architects here at AIA Austin tirelessly volunteer to influence and shape the policies and legislation that impact our designed environment.  I have yet to find another City where architects are so passionately, constructively active in a broad range of local policy.  

 

As our City Hall debates disclosure rules for lobbying, I want to take a moment to celebrate some new and growing relationships that have helped us get heard this past season:

 

The Intersection of Design and Human Health

We will begin disussion on Monday about our proposed theme for 2016 which is about how architecture and planning can promote human health.

We would like to invite everyone to attend this meeting to look ahead to 2016 and discuss a program that involves a collaboration of AIA Austin Committees.

 Here are quotes from the AIA Sustainability Leadership Opportunity Scan:
