The Executive Vice-President and CEO of the American Institute of Architects, Robert Ivy has become one of the leading figures in the global architecture scene after a successful stint as a Principal at one of the top architectural agencies in the U.S. Ivy has since expanded his reach across different areas of the architectural industry by adding in a range of areas of interest including editing one of the most respected magazines in the global architectural sector; in perhaps his most important role of his career, Robert Ivy has been responsible for the growth and change of direction of the American Institute of Architects.

Over the course of his career, Ivy has become one of the leaders of the architectural and construction industries through the last few years as he has taken on a new career as the EVP and CEO of the American Institute of Architects. Ivy has spent the majority of his time at the AIA which began in 2011 looking to assist in developing a new way of building a successful design-based program which assists with the development of stronger and more sustainable communities for the future.


As the leader of the American Institute of Architects, Robert Ivy has developed new programs designed specifically for the development of a new and improved format for the development of a sustainable future. Ivy believes the link between an improved level of public health can be made possible by working towards a better level of design from buildings through to the effective design of buildings allowing the residents and users of a building to have access to safe water and the correct amount of natural light.

Robert Ivy announced his own decade-long plan to establish the AIA as a leader within the community as the group is looking to become more proactive and promote a better community at all levels over the coming years. Robert Ivy believes the work being completed by the American Institute of Architects will be successful on a number of different levels as the group is looking to use design to promote better health in terms of commonly seen medical conditions such as diabetes and heart disease which the design of buildings across many different sectors can play a positive role in.
