Why Robert Ivy Is The Nation’s Premier Architectural Authority

There are many good reasons for an architect to join the AIA. The American Institute of Architects was founded in 1857 as a way for architects across the nation to share their knowledge and experience, as well as to build meaningful partnerships with one another. It is hard to underestimate the importance of good networking in any profession. Traditional wisdom tells us “it’s not always what you know, it’s also who you know.” While this may seem like nepotism to some, it is actually just the nature of any profession.

Architects have looked to the AIA for help and inspiration for over 150 years. An organization does not usually achieve that kind of lifespan without being productive and helpful to its members. So, it is fitting that we take a quick look at its current CEO and Executive Vice President, Robert Ivy.

Robert Ivy is a thoroughly qualified architect, having received a Master of Architecture degree from Tulane University. He also holds a Bachelor’s degree in English from Sewanee: The University of the South. This combination of skills was very important for his career. With this particular skill set, it is only natural that he went into the field of architectural writing. Find out more about Robert Ivy at bizjournals.com

The list of awards and honors that he and the magazine received is a long one.

Neal Awards, 7 Ozzies and the 2008 MPA Digital Award for Website of the Year. He has also been honored with the Crain Award in 2009. and the McGraw-Hill Award for Management Excellence in 1998. Along the way, he was made a Senior Fellow of the Design Futures Council. In 2010, he was also recognized as a master architect by the national architect’s fraternity, Alpha Ro Chi.
