Never an architectural leader to sit back on his laurels and enjoy the fruits of his labor as a Principal at the Dean & Ivy practice and as the Editor of “Architectural Record”. Instead, Robert Ivy has been willing to place his own reputation on the line with an attempt to create a more positive future for architecture in general. Announcing his plan at the 2012 Clinton Global Initiative, Ivy stated he was willing to lead a decade-long plan designed to inspire a move towards more sustainable and community-aware architectural choices.
The decision of Robert Ivy to announce his plan at the Clinton Global Initiative was no coincidence, a large number of global leaders and impressive thinkers who witnessed his announcement were asked to play a role in inspiring architects and designers from across the planet to take part in the program according to mswritersandmusicians.com. As the leader of the American Institute of Architects, Robert Ivy already commands a large amount of respect but believes any assistance he may receive when creating new programs is all-important to the future success of one of the world’s leading design and construction groups.
