2009: Diversity of Practice

By Matthew Carbone / January 8, 2009

For the 2009 AIA Columbus year, we have selected to utilize our monthly meetings to focus on the diverse and expanding role of the architect.  Believe it or not, most graduates from architecture programs of study are not practicing in the traditional manner. Really.  Think about it.  We represent owner’s interests, we design products, we take on project management roles, we build and construct, we consult regarding sustainability, we teach, we develop, and we design.  The profession is diverse.  And our culture demands that we stand up and embrace the evolving role of the architect.  We are many things, let’s celebrate it.

What’s next…a Center for Architecture

By Columbus Chapter AIA / December 10, 2008

As we come to the end of one year and near the beginning of another wrought already with dire economic predictions and cutbacks in capital spending by many of our clients, one has to wonder what is on the horizon for the architect. How does our profession cope with the uncertain market condition and the general lack of confidence in the future? Lead! Charge ahead!
