How the American Institute of Architects Has Evolved While Staying True to its Mission

One of the most popular organizations in the realm of architecture is the Washington D.C. based American Institute of Architects, also known as the AIA, which is the leading professional organization for America’s top architectures.

The American Institute of Architects offers a variety of services to meet any need in the realm of architecture in the United States. They offer government advocacy, community development and redevelopment as well as education and public outside designed to inform the public about architecture advancements. The organization also offers a wide variety of support for individual architects and their firms. It is meant to be an organization that serves as a type of “one stop shop” for the architecture industry to continue to thrive and move forward.

The American Institute of Architects is somewhat of a legendary institute and is incredibly stately in nature. Most every prominent architect on the East Coast and beyond has been a part of the AIA in some way shape or form.

The AIA was originally founded by a group of 13 highly prominent architects with the goal of elevating the standards of the architecture profession in America. Among the founders were lengendary names such as Henry Cleveland and Joeseph C. Wells. The core group of 13 quickly grew to add 16 additional architects.

While it may seem like the simple founding of a group, it is important to remember that prior to the AIA being founded literally anyone could call themselves an architect. There were no universal standards for licensing. The AIA set the standards people must meet to be licensed as an architect.

The AIA has adapted and evolved through the years but still remains true to the goal of elating the profession of architecture and educating the public about it. It is still a membership centric organization.

The AIA is currently led by Robert Ivy, who serves as the Chief Executive Officer and Executive Vice President. Architecture is his life’s passion and he believes that architecture goes beyond the simple design of buildings but can provide an incredible impact in the lives of people. While his work mainly focuses on the design and construction of various buildings and structures, he encourages architects to think outside the lines and to not shy away from seeing past construction to what architecture can provide. From providing disaster relief and reconstruction to impacted areas to improviding the quality of life with innovative structures like rooftop gardens.
