YOUR AIA: ADVOCACY & IMPACT AT ALL LEVELS
ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION

We're excited to bring together AIA leaders to share how the AIA is supporting members and the profession, and to hear from members to gain a better understanding of the priorities and concerns in the architectural profession in Silicon Valley and beyond.

 

AIA’s mission is ‘the voice of the architectural profession and a resource for its members in service to society’, and its organizational structure provides different benefits at the local, state and national level. What are AIA’s biggest strengths and the opportunities for architects at each level? How does AIA serve the interests of small to large practices, and every firm size in between? Learn how AIA is advocating for architects and the core issues facing the profession today, and what is anticipated for tomorrow.

ABOUT THE VENUE
467 First Street
Hayes Group Architects
Project Type: Commercial
Completion 2018       
16,392 SF      

467 First Street is a prominent gateway site to downtown Los Altos, located at the intersection of San Antonio Road and First Street, a major entry point into the downtown. A former, corner, gas station site, was combined with two other parcels on either side of the corner parcel. A public alley bisects the combined parcels.

The building responds to the site and respects the village-like design characteristics through the defining elements of rhythm, scale, warmth, texture, quality, permanence, and sustainability while offering a fresh look of fitting in with a streetscape of diverse architecture. This project has received a LEED Gold pre-certification and is seeking final certification.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand different approaches to Citizen Architect roles and their importance to the profession and impact to your community - from making a difference in your local community to advancing leadership across the spectrum of government, institutions, or neighborhoods.

2. Learn about advocacy efforts and pending and recent legislative changes that impact architectural services and the future of educational environments, pertaining to the design and construction of schools.

3. Now that architects have voted to address climate change in the AIA Climate Change Resolution and AIA California’s adoption of the Zero Code, learn how architects can have a big role in creating a healthier built environment by implementing higher energy efficiency standards and designing for carbon neutrality in projects.

4. Learn the AIA Design Excellence Framework, formerly known as COTE Top Ten Toolkit, a knowledge-based resource for designing high performing, well-designed buildings that can better address economic and energy inequities experienced by the building users or in the greater community.
