The AIA New York Chapter, under the leadership of 2014 President Lance Jay Brown, FAIA, had a tremendously successful year. Brown’s presidential theme, “Civic Spirit: Civic Vision,” emphasized the critical role played by public space in ensuring civic engagement. As New York City enters a new era with new mayoral leadership, an expanding population, and increasing threats from climate change, our design professions face consequential civic opportunities, challenges, and responsibilities. Throughout the year, programs examined these issues and more, culminating in the Center for Architecture’s summer exhibition, “Open to the Public: Civic Space Now.”
On 12.09.14, AIANY will celebrate the achievements of 2014, and present a preview of what’s to come during the 2015 AIA New York Board Inaugural. Brown will pass the gavel to 2015 President Tomas Rossant, AIA, founding partner and design principal at Ennead Architects. Please join us as we welcome incoming board members and thank exiting members for their outstanding leadership contributions to the Chapter. A celebratory reception sponsored by IBEX Construction will follow.
