The architects of the United States have long had the desire to collaborate in order to help collaborate the state of the profession, and they have been doing so for the past 160 years (since 1857) through the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
Robert Ivy is the executive VP and CEO of the AIA where he is putting what he learned through his Tulane roots to good use and to the benefit of the organization’s over 90,000 members.
Ever since he assumed the role, Robert Ivy has been delivering his views on the industry and helping architects to expand from the traditional design only task to add a myriad of supplemental services while working towards helping the firms become more of total “creative consultants” so that they might begin to utilize their unique problem solving ability to tackle issues in other fields as well. He also has continued to share his view that architecture has now been nearly completely embedded with sustainability as the natural way to work. This means that the planet will continue to be hit with a more positive environmental footprint which should mean good things all around.

Indeed, he also wants to continue to increase projects which have the ability to positively affect public health as well. Ivy consistently points to the Olmsted design of Central Park as an example of where the architects wanted to mostly eliminate substandard housing and help to improve an area of New York City which was quite challenged in many ways. Eventually, the space did become a primary place of recreation and enjoyment of the city, but the motives were not all aligned in that direction to begin with. He wants to continue to encourage the members of the American Institute of Architects to push for similar efforts in their specific regions so that public health of US citizens will continue to be increased as an example for the rest of the world.
He has continued to receive awards as an author in both architecture and security, and his voice is one that is well respected architect when he expresses these views. The five levels of membership at the AIA gives architects a chance to collaborate on various different levels while also having the chance to take home one of the many awards offered. Robert Ivy will continue to take the AIA in new directions through his exemplary efforts of unification.

Anyone who does business with Miami Real Estate has heard of Samuel Strauch. There is a big difference between knowing him and knowing about him. Those who are going to have dealings in Miami need to know a little bit more about this man.
He believes in a forward-thinking approach when it comes to investing in real estate.
Those who are going to invest in the real estate market need to have a keen understanding of the market.
“It is not enough to go up and buy a home. Investors and home buyers need to have a micro and macro understanding of the market they are looking into. It is not a simple process anymore. Some properties look good on paper and stop after that. Buyers need to be concerned about every aspect of their real estate. It is the only way to have full transparency and make a well-informed choice for buying up a property”.
This is the exact argument you will hear from Samuel Strauch when talking to a client. He feels that clients need to have a full understanding of the true value of their property. When they do not have this understanding, impulse buying begins. This is something Samuel Strauch stays away from.
Everyone is multi-faceted, they just do not know it.
Samuel Strauch lectures on this a lot. He feels that we can all benefit from one another, in one way or another.
“When you are buying a home or investing in a property, you are investing in a living thing. This is not just about number crunching or selling. We are all multi-faceted on way or another. We are all simple and complex at the same time. The same goes for buying a property. Home buyers need to invest in every aspect of the house and its soul, or the bottom line means nothing. Houses and other properties have different aspects to them. There is a soul inside each one. People have to come first, than profit”.

According to Vijay, this strategy enables a company to treat its employee with dignity, have better networking, and succeed with its strategy of distributing profits. Quoting QI’s EQ, a set of intangible values, principles and concepts, Vijay said a company that observes loyalty, trust, empathy, faith and care easily achieves its productivity objectives.
EQ has helped QI to cultivate a culture of unity and cohesion. He posits that careful evaluation of different situations and consulting before making a decision is a significant step to achieving success. Learn more about Vijay Eswaran: https://hk.linkedin.com/in/eswaranvijay
