Robert A. Ivy serves at the American Institute of Architects as the company’s Chief Executive Officer. Since assuming the leadership role, Robert Ivy started investigating the future of the application of architecture and the role of architects in the community. Ivy devoted the American Institute of Architects to an effort that could have been completed nearly 10 years to create a catalyst design for improving the health of the public. This was at the Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting conducted in 2012 through digital programs, research grants, and community planning.
Comprehending the role of architects in the society and expanding awareness influenced Robert Ivy to establish a comprehensive effort to create a relevant and responsive 21st-century AIA. The AIA was built to advance the role of bolsters and architects to develop a national dialogue about the primary role of architecture in our daily life. Moreover, the main goal of this initiative is to make AIA updated in light of creative, economic, and social challenges faced by the profession.
