American Institute of Architects To Make Designs Promoting public Wellbeing

American Institute of Architects, AIA, is a professional architects’ organization in the United States. In a recent interview with SmartPlanet, the CEO, Robert Ivy is explaining more about their services as architecture professionals. The discussed is engineered on the relationship between architecture and public health.

Robert says that architectural designs have a very vital part to play in improving public health. Relating this to the history of Central Park, the recreational space in New York, the whole idea was to bring a normalcy in the city by bringing to an end the existence of substandard housing and improve public health. Though years back, buildings were just objects, in the current era and architect generation, the health factor is an essential part of as much as diverse populations are considered.

Architecture has a way of increasing/ decreasing the rate of non-communicable diseases like heart diseases and diabetes in a community. Houses and cities can be designed in ways that encourage exercise, like climbing up stairs, while access to fresh air, sunlight and clean water is part of the design plan.

American Institute of Architects is also very keen on material selection as this is also another thing that can affect public health. Materials that put the public health at no risk or even enhance life are much regarded. Today, they do not only think of the public welfare but rather their well-being, where the wholesome aspect of human potential is put into consideration from physical, psychological to spiritual. Thus designs can powerfully promote the health, well-being, safety, and potential.

While competition and comparative discrimination are part of architects professional life, hackathon seems to fit in as much. Hackathon, being a more contemporary and technological phenomenon, seems to be a great way that will bring public involvement into the architectural world, for example when AIA incorporate ideas of the existing successful health apps in their designs.

As much as the plans, goals and vision for their success are defined, AIA also consider collaborations very vital in their progress. According to Robert Ivy, time seems to has run out for professionals to stay locked with their gifts and diverse talents, and teaming up with smart people is the in thing. Being able to manage a huge team of diversely skilled minds is what has and still is defining most successful architects.

With the need to make the people’s well-being, paramount, time to gain evidence, and critical effort have to chip in. View:https://www.linkedin.com/in/robert-ivy-143b741
