While technological advancements have been a wonderful thing in many ways they have not been very friendly toward the environment. The human race is destroying the planet they call home and if we are not careful we will soon destroy this place and no longer have a place to live.
Robert Ivy, the current president of the American Institute of Architects is very passionate about keeping the environment safe. He believes that the profession of architecture has a strong role to play in stopping climate change and preventing global warming.
Robber Ivy began as the Vice President for the American Institute of Architects. When their recent president stepped down from the position he was a natural choice for the executive board. He gladly took the position believing that he could lead the field of architects to a new place where they were able to help sustain the environment and stop impacting the climate.
Robber Ivy shared his vision with the American Institute of Architects. This vision was accepted since many people there felt the exact same thing. For a very long time the organization was looking at ways to help mankind live in harmony with nature. This was very difficult since the field of architecture was one of the fields that impacted the environment the most. In order to build buildings trees had to be cut down, roads had to be built, and houses were built to accommodate workplaces. If the field of architecture can find a way to sustain the environment, this would go a long way to promoting a healthy world.
Robert Ivy began working with many universities and schools to implement a new program into their education curriculum. On top of that, he reached out to Bill and Hillary Clinton who were longtime friends of his. They agreed to invite him to a Clinton foundation dinner where he would be able to address other executives.
At this dinner, Robert Ivy stood in front of over 1000 corporate executives and explained to them how the American Institute of Architects was moving into what they called the decade of design. Over the next decade, the American Institute of Architects would begin researching and developing new ways for buildings to be more environmentally friendly. This included building different shaped buildings that we in and out of nature creating a more natural look to the world without impacting our mother nature.
