Event: 2012 AIA New York Board Inaugural
Location: Center for Architecture, 12.06.11
Speakers: Margaret O’Donoghue Castillo, AIA, LEED AP — 2011 AIANY President; Joseph J. Aliotta, AIA, LEED AP — 2012 AIANY President
Remarks: Rick Bell, FAIA — AIANY Executive Director
In today’s uncertain times, now more than ever, we must envision the future of our profession and the health of our building environment by addressing its most profound challenges. We will determine our own future by how thoughtfully we respond to those challenges. For these reasons, I have established the 2012 theme as “Future Now.”
Featuring the Emerging New York Architects (ENYA) Ideas Competition The Harlem Edge: Cultivating Connections, and the New Practices Competition, they will point us to new directions in the design profession. These competitions and their related exhibitions and programs are the centerpieces of 2012, continuing the Chapter’s focus on innovative technologies and sustainability. Related programs will include a weekend design-build workshop with the firms and local high school students.
As you, I’m looking forward to a resurgent economy with a stronger Chapter recognized for its intellectual, practical, and imaginative leaders. I look forward to working with all of you toward these goals.
