Working with an Architect

AIA ilookup campaign

What do you see when you look up? The American Institute of Architects seeks to ask the public to imagine the possibilities of working with an architect to achieve great communities. The illookup campaign is a multi-year effort to promote the value of architects in the public realm.

Message from 2016 AIA Austin President

Pro-sper-i-ty: The condition of having success, flourishing. To be fortunate or to thrive financially.

My strongest mental images of the movie The Agony and the Ecstasy feature Michelangelo lying on his back, painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel with a furious Pope Julius II pacing back and forth on the floor far below demanding more work for less fee. I worry that this scene plays out in many architectural practices today precisely because we see ourselves as artists before business people–happy just to have an expressive commission.

Resiliency and Austin

Austin’s Committee on the Environment is following the AIAs Sustainability Opportunity Leadership Scan (SLOS) report that highlights four focus areas. This year the focus is Resiliency and we have a series of seminars for the year.
