Design has the inherent power to transform behavior and shape culture. It is why designers have both a responsibility and a tremendous opportunity to use that power to ignite change and to communicate the importance of sustainability to individuals, corporations and society as a whole. The (Re)designAwards competition recognizes design that challenges us to rethink our world and our choices. It is based on a fundamental belief that we can build a better planet through sustainable and socially responsible design.

AIA Issues Statement to Congress on Introduction of Transportation Reauthorization Proposal Print E-mail

AIA Urges Congress Not to Miss Opportunity to Revitalize Economy, Improve Safety

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) issued the following statement on the release of the transportation reauthorization proposal Thursday by House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman John L. Mica (R-Fla.)

The statement should be attributed to AIA President Clark Manus, FAIA:

“Whenever architects are hired by clients to design projects, their primary goal is for the design to be cost effective while being long-lasting – by investing now and realizing the paybacks over time. This proposal may cost less than a fully funded transportation bill, but the long-term costs to our country by failing to invest in a 21st Century transportation system are far-reaching.”

“The cost just to maintain our transportation infrastructure in a good state outpaces even current federal funding. It will not help communities address the congestion challenges they face, or offer people more options in how they travel.

“This reauthorization bill should be a rare opportunity to help re-design our communities and transportation networks to help enable the U.S. to remain competitive. “We urge Congress to keep this goal in mind as negotiations continue on this much needed transportation bill.”

Friday, 08 July 2011 07:24

OMA has just won the competition to design the new Parc des Expositions (PEX) in the innovation zone of Toulouse, southern France. PEX is conceived as a new gateway to the city and will host exhibitions, conferences, and concerts. The 338,000m2 project is designed to be a compact mini-city – an antidote to the sprawl of a standard exposition park, and a means to preserve the surrounding French countryside.
