  • On February 23, 1857, 13 architects met in the New York City office of architect Richard Upjohn to form what would become the American Institute of Architects. The group sought to create an architecture organization that would "promote the scientific and practical perfection of its members" and "elevate the standing of the profession.“Until this point, anyone who wished to call him-or herself an architect could do so. This included masons, carpenters, bricklayers, and other members of the building trades. No schools of architecture or architectural licensing laws existed to shape the calling.The image at the bottom is a photo of the 1883 convention. A little smaller than the one I just returned from in Denver.
  • Architects are positioned to be leaders with regard to an expanded view of health, safety and welfare. As an Institute we must provide the access to knowledge, research, and professional collaborations that are critical to ensure our members become more informed and better prepared to lead. The AIA continues to advance, disseminate, and advocate—to the profession, the building industry, the academy, and the public—design practices that integrate built and natural systems and enhance both the design quality and environmental performance of the built environment.
  • There are as many definitions of “green building” as there are architects. But one thing that is consistent among those definitions is the need for integration between the built environment and nature. A symbiotic relationship must exist between the buildings we design and occupy, our streets, parks, and gardens, and the cities and natural resouces that we all share with one another and with other species.
  • And for each definition of “green building,” there is a different green building rating system! Many, if not most, of you have probably participated in the design and documentation of LEED projects, rated and certified by the USGBC. But depending on the type of project and region of the country, there are other rating systems gaining popularity such as Green Globes, the National Green Building Standard, SERF, Build it Green, Green Point Rated, and ENERGY STAR. Some cities, such as Austin, TX and Tucson, AZ even have their own rating systems. And for all of these reasons, the AIA has produced numerous tools and guidelines for assisting design teams in the selection of an appropriate green building rating system for each project.
  • There are 3 levels of the AIA organization, each has it’s own activities related to sustainable design.
  • The "Walk the Walk" Campaign was born from the idea that there is a lot of talk about the future of the planet but not enough action being taken to set us on the right path. At its core, "Walk the Walk" is an "empowerment" campaign designed to let people know that a course of action is available.
  • AIA has 100s of knowledge communities about a multitude of subjects including sustainability.
  • The updated Guide for Sustainable Projects includes:-An example Sustainability Plan and how it can serve as a model for developing a plan according to the project needs.-Expanded section on the discussion of key Sustainability Certifications, IGCC, Environmental Product ratings and insurance issues.-Detailed commentary on each of the new provisions included in the current Sustainable Project (SP) contract documents released in May 2012.
  • At all levels the AIA is a strong supporter of the Energy Efficient Commercial Building Deduction. This deduction, also known as 179D, provides building owners up to $1.80 per square foot for energy efficient design. In the case of a public owner on the local, state or federal level, this deduction can be passed on to the designer since designing an energy efficient building requires more time, effort, and resources throughout the design process.
  • The Florida Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Florida) is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2012.  To commemorate this historic event and help educate the public to raise awareness of the architecture profession, AIA Florida is planning a year of exciting and educational events, including Architecture Month in April, the "Florida Architecture: 100 Years. 100 Places." competition, the Annual Convention at The Breakers Palm Beach in July, a celebration event in December 2012 and much more.It is a celebration of our history and heritage, a salute to those who had the insight of creating better places to live, work and play through architectural design.
  • I worked with AIA Florida as their Associate Director-at-Large. We developed a theoretical design awards program for the intern architects in Florida to develop light rail stations for the Sarasota/Manatee area.
  • 13 Local Chapters represents +/- 2,200 AIA MembersChapters such as AIA Tampbay, AIA Gulfcoast, and of course AIA Orlando
  • Tampa’s local COTE committee recently hosted [re]stitch TAMPA, an international ideas competition for urban public spaces and the waterfront located in downtown Tampa, Florida. This competition was funded in part by the University of South Florida School of Architecture and Community Design and an Access to Artistic Excellence grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
  • Urban Charrette
  • At the gulfcoast chapter level we try to team up with other local organizations when dealing with sustainable issues to conserve resources. Each of these chapters has +/- 100 members so sharing the burden is a great way to do bigger events and activities with the size limitations of the chapters.We have worked with local municipalities to create legislation like faster permitting and density bonuses for green buildings.
  • ULI recognizes that effective strategies to combat global climate change will require cooperative effort by all segments of the economy and all segments of society around the globe. Given the multifaceted challenge and the many exemplary efforts by organizations around the world to meet this challenge, ULI does not seek to duplicate the effective efforts of others, such as those focused on transportation technologies or building technologies. By focusing on issues at the core of the ULI mission óthe responsible use of land. ULI seeks to make an important contribution within the emerging chorus of collaboration and partnership.Guiding Principles:Foster a global response at the local level. While climate change challenges are global in scope, impacts and actions vary from region to region. Individual communities must rise to the challenge of climate change mitigation and adaptation with transformational solutions. The achievement of low-carbon economies relies on individual actions within local communities worldwide.Reduce GHG emissions. GHG emissions must be reduced in an absolute and verifiable manner with strategies that embrace both supply-side and demand-side market transformation. Strategic investments in existing real estate and sound design of new buildings and neighborhoods can produce direct and indirect reductions of GHG emissions across building and transportation sectors. Policy frameworks must value the interdisciplinary nature of real estate investments accordingly.Conserve natural resources by using land wisely. Land use should minimize community vulnerability to natural disaster, foster the conservation of water and energy, and conserve or restore land with respect to its value to sustain regional biodiversity. Community land use patterns should be compact, mixed-use, and organized with ìinfillî locations prioritized to minimize waste and pollution. New land use patterns should allow communities to thrive without sacrificing the integrity, quality, or capacity of their natural resource systems.Realize strategic regional coordination. Sustainable, resilient communities are achieved through mutually reinforcing investments throughout a region. Transportation, energy, water, industry, commerce, housing, and agriculture must be coordinated as components of an effective regional land use vision. Success relies upon aligning multiple government jurisdictions and stakeholders in the effort to effectuate desired outcomes.Create compact, mixed-use, mixed-income livable communities. Employment is the cornerstone of community vitality, and housing choice is necessary to sustain a workforce. Concentrations of employment and services must be integrated with housing and public transit to form a land use framework that maximizes livability and efficiency. Housing supply must include diverse types and location choices that meet a growing diversity of demand. Housing choice mitigates the forces of land use sprawl, lowers total household costs, and reduces GHG emissions by reducing or eliminating daily vehicle miles traveled (VMT).Promote accessibility and choices in mobility. Location-based accessible land use accelerates innovations in transportation network efficiency and reduces overall VMT. Promoting walking, public transit, and other low-emission modes of transportation allows communities and regions to make moving peopleórather than carsóa priority. Reduction of total VMT is a cornerstone strategy for the absolute reduction of global GHG emissions and will result in multiple community co-benefits, including public health, individual health, and quality of life.Track progress and relentlessly explore feasibility. This includes defining metrics of sustainability and resilience for communities and stakeholders, measuring ongoing performance, and transparently communicating real progress to all stakeholders. Furthermore, innovative market transformation solutions rely on exploring feasible and effective opportunities that align with fiduciary responsibly and allow for reasonable returns on investment. Triple-bottom-line community sustainability grows from a culture of sound business practices, equitable fiscal management, and ongoing accountability.Cultivate leadership, invention, and entrepreneurship. Growth is inevitable; sustainable growth is a communityís choice. Communities can grow into a sustainable future through partnerships that transform markets and achieve the economies of scale necessary to mitigate GHG emissionsí impacts. Sustained innovation is achieved through deliberate decisions made iteratively at every stage of projects and endeavors.
  • What’s Next? Getting Ahead of Change explores new approaches in building practices and industry trends that are emerging in the post-recession economy, and which could dramatically change the built environment for the 21st century. The publication, prepared as part of ULI’s year-long recognition of its 75th anniversary, is being released this week during the Institute’s annual Fall Meeting and Expo in Denver. It is the follow-up to a report distributed at ULI’s 2011 Fall Meeting, which raised the prospects for significant change within the real estate industry.“Today’s operating environment for investment and development has perhaps never been more complex, but it presents as many opportunities as obstacles,” said ULI Chairman Peter S. Rummell. “Being successful in this environment means more than thinking differently about what’s built going forward. The real opportunities for success and leadership lie in how well we adapt what we’ve already built to fit the new dynamics of a world upended by demographic and economic shifts, environmental concerns, and continous, immediate advances in technology.”Among the significant trends identified in What’s Next:Greater risk — volatile and interconnected global financial markets increase risk associated with investment and development, as governments, consumers and the financial industry struggle to restructure debtTechnology as both boon and bane — technology advances will continue to boost productivity, but reduce the need for both workers and shelf space, cutting office and retail demand.Stressed living standards — as more jobs migrate to lower-cost labor markets, unemployment will wage stagnation will remain problematic in the US and EuropeCareer challenges — Gen Yers will continue to face challenges securing career-building employment, while baby boomers still employed will be increasingly vulnerable to corporate makeovers.Diminished senior savings – as pensions and government entitlements dwindle, seniors’ cratered savings will create lasting financial hardship for many aging baby boomers, with only a small group of affluent retirees able to coast on their savings and investments.Rich versus poor – the wealth gap will widen, further separating a minority of highly affluent people from the majority who face declining resources, dimming job prospects and tight credit.Natural disasters – increasingly intense storms and droughts will affect various types of development, ranging from waterfront projects vulnerable to flooding to inland communities with dwindling water resources.What’s Next anticipates an era of less, one that is characterized by segmentation and specialization rather than “one size fits all.” The market will subdivide, the report says, into niches to fit the numerous preferences and specific needs of several demographic groups, ranging from Gen Yers entering the housing and job market to senior citizens of vastly different financial means and physical capabilities. What is likely to be part of the lifestyles of all these age groups: more clustered development integrating a variety of land uses. The preferred place to live for most: urban areas that attract clusters of brainpower, offering better job prospects for the young and better healthcare facilities for the old.Smaller, more flexible space – for housing, offices and shopping – will redefine urban design and development in the years ahead, the report says.In terms of housing, both young and older adults who spend the bulk of their time socializing outside of home offer a lucrative market for small residences. Rising in popularity: micro-residences offering innovative multipurpose features to maximize living and storage space. At the other end of the spectrum, large suburban homes may still appeal to younger families with school age children, multigenerational households, and unrelated adults who prefer suburban lifestyles.In term of offices, bigger floor plates may be needed to accommodate a larger number of smaller individual work spaces, as businesses seek to fit in more cubicles, small meeting spaces and privacy nooks that will be shared “hoteling style” by multiple workers.In terms of retail space, retailers are likely to cut space and operating costs by trading large stores packed with merchandise for smaller displays oriented to online purchasers. Shopper-friendly apps for locating stores and sales will become a common feature.“In these ambiguous times, it’s clear that the real estate leaders will be those who adapt, adjust and become more nimble in meeting changing market preferences and needs,” said ULI Chief Executive Officer Patrick L. Phillips. “Whether owning, investing, planning or developing, the demands of the new world order require novel thinking and innovation, and entirely different business strategies.”What’s Next also explores the increasing emphasis on accessibility as a vital component of thriving cities, citing numerous successful case studies from around the world. Places that are investing in accessibility, both in terms of international airports and inter-linked transportation hubs, will be “magnets for face-to-face deal making, money sourcing, decision-making and career building,” it says. At the granular level, living near mass transit will command a growing premium, giving centrally located suburbs on transit lines a significant edge over less convenient exurban neighborhoods. “When Gen Yers leave the cities to raise families, these more convenient suburbs will top their house hunting lists,” the report says.It points to ample growth opportunities in the green building and retrofitting industry, with natural light, fresh air, and wireless access making tiny workspaces more tolerable, and lower energy and water bills improving building performance. Additionally, cloud computing and file digitization will help reduce space needs, potentially reducing leasing costs. The competitive consequences of forsaking green must be weighed in every transaction, the report notes, as more proof emerges that “green beats brown” from an economic as well as environmental standpoint.Opportunities for developers, says What’s Next, will lie primarily in under-served emerging markets, whether they are compromised neighborhoods ripe for gentrification in the U.S. or rapidly urbanizing cities in Asia and Latin America. “Intelligently remaking districts and communities into prosperous centers for the next generation should be the focus of the entire industry, led by local developers, lenders and investors,” says What’s Next. “Working in concert with planners and policy leaders, the real estate community has the chance to become problem solvers, making places with enduring value.”
  • Sustainable Communities Grant InitiativeThe Southeast Florida Regional Partnership (SFRP) is a voluntary, broad-based and growing collaboration of more than 200 public, private, and civic stakeholders from the Southeast Florida region of Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties. The Partnership has united to leverage resources and coordinate strategic long-term planning to drive competitiveness and prosperity for the region. SFRP seeks greater opportunities for sustained job creation, access to affordable housing, a better menu of transportation options, and more people-friendly, environment-friendly places to live.Seven50 (“seven counties, 50 years”) is a blueprint for growing a more prosperous, more desirable Southeast Florida during the next 50 years and beyond. The plan is being developed to help ensure socially inclusive communities, a vibrant and resilient economy, and stewardship of the fragile ecosystem in what is quickly becoming one of the world’s most important mega-regions.
  • SustainabilityThe term “sustainability” has become common language, it has also grown in scope — and the business case for engaging in sustainable practices is stronger than ever. It is also often misunderstood or oversimplified in the public arena. ULI Tampa Bay’s Sustainability Council will focus ULI members on identifying what the primary issues are in Tampa Bay, who is doing relevant work in this area, and how ULI can best allocate our resources to advance the regional commitment to sustainable practices. In Florida, it’s much more than green building, LEED certification and conservation — it’s also about resiliency. This group will also plan and produce our annual Sustainability Forum, designed to educate industry leaders and convene key stakeholders around current trends.
  • Through the “Building Healthy Places” project, ULI is pursuing a cross-disciplinary effort to engage ULI members and others in efforts to advance the design, planning, and building of projects and places that promote human health.
  • n November 2008, ULI-Central Florida began collaborating with myregion.org on behalf of the Congress of Regional Leaders to identify barriers and solutions to the implementation of the How Shall We Grow? vision.In 2007, myregion.org asked nearly 20,000 Central Floridians the question, “How Shall We Grow?” Through a series of community meetings, presentations and surveys, the answer was clear: Central Florida residents desired a region focusing on the “4Cs” – Conservation, Countryside, Centers and Corridors.From this effort, the Congress of Regional Leaders was formed. Composed of City officials, County Commissioners and members of the Central Florida Public School Boards Coalition, the Congress of Regional Leaders is dedicated to developing shared regional-scale solutions to regional issues.At their first meeting in 2009, the Congress of Regional Leaders reviewed the progress made toward implementing the Regional Growth Vision and adopted the issue of “Water” as one of the highest priorities for the region. What we learned through How Shall We Grow? is that preserving and enjoying our natural resources is of upmost importance to citizens across the region.In partnership with the St. Johns River, Southwest Florida and South Florida Water Management Districts, Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the University of Central Florida Metropolitan Center for Regional Studies, myregion.org, and ULI-Central Florida under the leadership of the Congress of Regional Leaders, created an 18-month project to develop a Central Florida Regional Water Strategy that would avoid the use of public dollars to litigate over water.The Central Florida Regional Water Strategy process included convening “Stakeholder Meetings” in each of the seven counties represented on the Congress of Regional Leaders (Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Polk and Volusia) to identify key issues surrounding Water Supply, Demand, Conservation, and Governance. Using input from these meetings, the Steering Committee made recommendations on what would be required to reach a regional solution to our water needs.
