Across the world, members of the U.S.-based trade association, the American Institute of Architects are performing their duties in a positive way to push forward many of the ideas and policies instigated by the company over the course of its 160-year history. Over the decades the group has been in operation it has built its success on the need to stay abreast of the changes taking place in society which affect the many different ways buildings are used and constructed, and sought to develop a positive education program for architects and the general public.

Under CEO Robert Ivy, the need for a brighter future for the people of the U.S. and those affected by the work of American Institute of Architects members have remained at the heart of the growth of the association. One of the most important aspects of the work of the AIA is to push forward the regulations and requirements undertaken by the U.S. government at local, state, and federal level in a way reflecting the changing face of architecture and the construction industry. Now based in Washington D.C., the American Institute of Architects has become a major part of the landscape of the nation’s capital by remaining in the fore of the discussion about how architecture can affect society in a positive way.

The American Institute of Architects has also developed its own programs and initiatives to ensure the development of architects takes place consistently from those taking their first steps into the academic programs designed to start the career of any design professional to those reaching their retirement. Across the architectural industry, the need for excellence begins with the forms completed by potential architects registering their interest for educational courses and continues through the contracts designed by the AIA for use in all construction projects involving its members.

Robert Ivy has continued the need for public education programs which he believes will provide a group of people much more involved in the direction architecture takes over the remainder of the century. By continuing to push forward the latest technologies and design ideas to reach a changing world and communities threatened by climate change, Robert Ivy is continuing the long tradition begun by the original founders of the American Institute of Architects when the group was established in 1857.
