AIA Blue Ribbon Panel Report – Disruption, Evolution, and Change: AIA’s Vision of the Future of Design and Construction

This webinar will bring together the broader AIA membership with the AIA members & staff that helped craft the AIA Blue Ribbon Panel report “Disruption, Evolution, and Change: AIA’s Vision of the Future of Design and Construction.” We encourage the audience to read the report beforehand at http://bit.ly/2Kp9c0u.

The presenters will outline the report’s vision, milestones to pursue over the next 30 years, and recommendations for partner collaboration. AIA Board member Tim Hawk, FAIA will challenge AIA members (particularly component leaders) to lead the promotion of these recommendations through their state/local components. A Q&A session will follow.

BACKGROUND: 

In June 2018, then-AIA President Carl Elefante, FAIA commissioned the AIA Blue Ribbon Panel (BRP) on Codes & Standards to compose a report to address policy changes needed to better align with AIA’s 2030 Commitment to sustainable design. This report would outline many objectives for architects to embrace to help transform the practice of architecture in a way that is holistic, firm-wide, data-driven, and sustainable.

After a year of discussion, debate, review, editing, and feedback, the BRP published the aspirational report “Disruption, Evolution, and Change: AIA’s Vision of the Future of Design and Construction” (http://bit.ly/2Kp9c0u).

The report offers a plan for how the AIA can best position itself and its members for the future of use and application of codes and standards. This report reflects not only the BRP’s thoughts but includes active input from AIA legal and contract documents experts, knowledge leaders, and government affairs experts. The initiatives outlined are many and the effort will be far-reaching by recommending that AIA membership engage AIA’s strategic partners & other related industry groups to embrace these recommended changes.
