The rising issue of how the architectural industry will be developed over the coming years has become the concern of the American Institue of Architects CEO Robert Ivy who feels he has the responsibility of developing strategies to combat the lack of planning currently seen across much of the U.S. One of the issues facing the American Institute of Architects is how cities and communities of all sizes will develop over the next decade and beyond which is being addressed in the award-winning public service initiative known as Sustainability 2030 directed towards city mayors and planning officials who have the responsibility of assisting in the creation of plans for the future of each community.

The Sustainability 2030 Toolkit is designed to provide both educational opportunities and the need for a dedicated national movement towards creating a strategy designed to create a strategy for tackling the problems a changing climate creates around the world. Robert Ivy explained the Sustainability 2030 Toolkit was not designed to give a complete understanding of the challenges facing the nation but was instead created to give an overview of the issues of sustainability and environmental changes to the planet and how a dedicated plan can make a difference at all levels.

As the former Editor-in-Chief of “Architectural Digest”, Robert Ivy understands the need to involve the public in the work being done by the American Institute of Architects; educating the public about architecture means bringing the next generation of architectural students into the American Institute of Architects through the work being completed as part of the initiative to complete a public vote of the 150 favorite pieces of architecture in the U.S. By ensuring the public in the U.S. had the chance to explore the many different options open to them in naming their favorite pieces of architecture it was hoped a greater understanding could be gained of how architctural styles had changed over the years and which options the public found to be the most refreshing and important around them.

Now in its 150th year, the American Institute of Architects is entering a period when it will become a major part of the conversation on how the p[lans of the nation will evolve as the climate around us continues to change. Led by Robert Ivy, the American Institute of architects has the opportunity to develop a place in the public consciousness as fighting to protect communities in the coming decades and centuries.
