The Architects Foundation, formerly known as the AIA Foundation, has issued their 2015 Annual Report that details the significant progress over the past 12 months.  Through efforts of the Architects Foundation Board and former AIA and Foundation President George Miller FAIA, the Foundation has taken on new roles and along with a better defined focus.  With a new Foundation president Jeffery Potter, FAIA, who served as the AIA national president in 2012, the Foundation continues to implement its new strategic plan and work with the AIA in growing the Foundation resources and reach.  

As part of the Foundations effort to focus its diverse and wide reaching goals, the Foundation has developed four targeted pillars.  These include:  Design and Health, Education, Preservation and Resilience.  

To learn more about the Architects Foundation and its four targeted pillars, click on the "Design for Impact" cover to download a PDF copy of the Annual Report.

The Thomas Schroth Visiting Artist Series and the Kent State University College or Architecture and Environmental Design present the Jeanne Gang, Architect and MacArthur Fellow.  The lecture will occur on Thursday, January 28, 2016 at 7:30 pm at Cartwright Hall. Doors open at 6:30 pm. The program is open to the public and a dessert reception will follow the event.

Jeanne Gang is an  architect and MacArthur Fellow. She leads Studio Gang Architects, an architecture and design firm based in Chicago and New York.  Some of her projects include City Hyde Park, Chicago, Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership, Kalamazoo, Aqua Tower, Chicago and the WMS Boathouse at Clark Park, Chicago.  Links to these projects are listed below.  

The AIA Ohio Foundation launched its first printed newsletter earlier this fall which focused on the mission of the Foundation to provide scholarships to the four, and soon to be five, accredited architectural programs in Ohio.  First incorporated in February, 1968, the Foundation has concentrated on scholarships as part of its effort to support the profession, although the overall mission of the Foundation is much broader that simply scholarship support.  Governed by a Board of Trustees, the eleven members of the Board work year round to advance the mission and build the endowment that will allow the Foundation to not only continue its work, but expand its efforts.  Click on the newsletter to download a PDF of the inaugural issue of the Foundation newsletter.

As we scramble to finish the programs and efforts of 2015, AIA Eastern Ohio is already looking forward to the 2016 programs.  Scheduled for Febrauary 10, 2015, AIA Eastern Ohio, in cooperation with The Builders Association, will provide a program on project delivery methods.  The program is scheduled to take place at the Stambaugh Auditorium and will focus on the variety of delivery methods available under construction reform and the impact and concerns with each.  The program is under development and more information will be made available as keynote presenters are finalized.

Project Delivery methods within Ohio changed with revisions to state law as more a wider range of options were made available to government entities through the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission.  Construction Reform resulted in three specific delivery methods.  These include: General Contracting, Construction Manager at Risk and Design Build.  

Watch for more information and opportunities to register for the program in early 2016.
