The American Institute of Architects has been playing an integral role in the development of the U.S. as a major world power and in providing a better standard of living for millions of people around the world for more than a century. Under the leadership of CEO Robert Ivy, the American INstitute of Architects has been looking to the future of communities across the planet as this historic membership group has sought new ways of making sure access to clean water and the need to fight the rising risks of flooding seen across the world are major concerns of the construction industry.
Over 90,000 professionals are members of the American Institute of Architects and set out to make an impact on the rules and regulations created to enhance the safety and security of building construction and maintenance in the U.S. One of the major reasons for the development of the American Institute of Architects in 1857 in New York was the need for architects to come together and develop new techniques for making as many buildings in the U.S. as safe as possible for residents to enjoy; the same needs are evident in the work of the group in the 21st-century as the American Institute of Architects continues to assist in the development of new building codes across the nation.https://twitter.com/robertivy?lang=en
Robert Ivy has been at the heart of much of the recent work of the American Institute of Architects as his role as CEO has seen him extend his professional expertise as a campaigner and high-profile editor. At the magazine, “Architectural Record”, Ivy won numerous awards and is credited with making the publication relevant to the construction industry in the 21st-century.
One of the main concerns of Robert Ivy and his fellow architectural professionals at the American Institute of Architects is to create a swift response to the problems caused by the late Summer of flooding of 2017. American Institute of Architects chapters such as those in Florida is coming together to create plans and public policy options designed to battle the rising sea levels of coastal areas often affected by flooding in recent years. Adjusting the needs of cities to high levels of saltwater and the deforestation of cities causing major issues along the American coastline have become a priority for Robert Ivy and the American Institute of Architects.
