C-BIP

Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP), in collaboration with its Academic Partner, the Institute for Lightweight Structures and Conceptual Design (ILEK), will present the Columbia Building Intelligence Project (C-BIP) fifth International Think Tank on June 1, 2011, in Stuttgart, Germany. Leading educators, architects, engineers, fabricators, contractors, artists and other industry experts across a range of related industries will gather to explore new approaches that address the chronic adversarial atmosphere that has inhibited the progress of the architecture / engineering / construction industry for many years.

The event is an open dialogue that simultaneously pushes today’s industry leaders to think differently and informs educators on trends that could transform how the next generation of architectural professionals are educated. C-BIP works with the premise that we cannot change the future of our industry without transforming the education of our future leaders, which begins with a renewed engagement between academia and industry.The Columbia Building Intelligence Project is made possible by the generous support of Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope™.

The American Institute of Architects celebrates National Architecture Week April 10-16 Print E-mail
Thursday, 07 April 2011 07:26

National Architecture Week is a public awareness campaign from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) dedicated to increasing attention to the role architects play as a force for positive change in our communities and to elevate the public’s appreciation of design.

Similar to previous years’ observances, National Architecture Week will be virtual and will be composed of video presentations and a presence on Foursquare designed to reach the public (practicing nonmembers as well as architecture lovers in general) and members. The intent is to use several platforms for as many people as possible to share their thoughts and engage with like-minded professionals during the week.

The event will kick off Sunday, April 10, with a welcoming video from AIA President Clark Manus, FAIA, which will be posted to the AIA National YouTube channel. In the video, he will discuss an emerging issue within the architecture profession and end his presentation with a thought-provoking question for participants to discuss online.

As an incentive to follow AIA National on Foursquare, each day a Foursquare follower will be randomly selected to receive a prize from AIA Store.  Winners will be announced daily on AIA National’s Twitter account.

 
Adapting For The Future: The Urban Land Institute’s Real Estate Summit May 18-20 In Phoenix Print E-mail
Thursday, 31 March 2011 06:53

 

Numerous industry experts and economists are talking about the ‘new normal’ for the real estate industry.  Land use professionals in both the public and private sector are faced with adapting to current economic realities, while making long-term plans to stay competitive in the future.

What are the investment strategies and trends that will emerge from the current recession?  Will there be funding for transportation investments and what role will real estate professionals play in helping deliver bus rapid transit, streetcars, and other new transit systems?  How are healthcare institutions serving as catalysts for new workforce housing development?   With more people expected to rent in the years ahead – either by choice or necessity – is the rental industry prepared for a possible surge in demand?
