Editorial / diane d. greer

Several things came to my attention as I was preparing this issue. First, Bob
Currie, AIA, sent me a folio of his drawings. They are beautiful pen and ink sketch-
es of buildings he has seen and sketched on his travels around the world. What you
see on the cover of this issue and on the inside pages is but a small sampling of what
Bob sent me. The exquisite detail in the drawings reminds me of lecturing to students
about the birth of the Renaissance in Italy. By the early 15th century, most of the
buildings in Rome were in ruins, but it remained the city where architects went to sit
and sketch and learn their craft. They drew what remained of the fori, the arches, the
basilicas and monuments, quite often filling in missing pieces of structures as they
believed them to have looked. Rome was the "academical village," as Thomas
Jefferson referred to the buildings surrounding "The Lawn" at the University of
Virginia, the training ground for the architects who designed the palaces, domed
churches and villas that became the hallmarks of the "rebirth" of classical architecture
- the Renaissance.
Never, in the history of archi-
tecture, has there been a time when
sketching buildings was so impor-
tant to the training of architects.
It's always been important, and
hopefully, always will be, but this
was a time when the sketch was the
textbook the method by which
one gained an understanding of
structure and ornament, balance
and symmetry.
The second thing I received
was a press release from the
American Society of Architectural
Illustrators (ASAI) announcing that Ana Monnaco, a designer for Morris Architects,
was the 2007 recipient of the prestigious Hugh Ferriss Memorial Prize, a top honor
of the ASAI international juried competition. The winning submission, seen here,
was a hand-drawn, computer color-enhanced rendering identified as Coral Helix.
The subject is an interior view of the proposed Ocean Planet environment, envi-
sioned to be the world's largest living coral reef exhibit. Under the direction of
Philippe Cousteau, the project was conceived by Eighth Wonder, a resort and leisure
development company. Ana's illustration is one of Morris Architects' concepts that
were developed for the $3.5 billion project to be built in Singapore. In addition to
Ana's obvious skill as an architectural illustrator is that, according to the ASAI, she is
the "youngest and first female to win the industry's top honor."
Accompanying the ASAI information was an e-mail from Morris Architects stat-
ing that "the architecture industry is going through a paradigm shift in the way it
designs and delivers projects through BIM. More and more, firms are embracing the
use of photo realistic presentation forms. But, do clients really want to see a concept
so finalized, especially early in the design process? Or is it preferable to capture the
imagination of the client in visualizing their project through the art of architectural
illustration?" Morris offers its clients "a variety of presentation forms."
In its comments, the ASAI jury described Ana's submission as a "hybrid drawing
combining digital technology with traditional hand drawing." The jury deemed the
drawing "hypnotic, with a remarkable sense of depth. Like the drawings by the
award's namesake, Hugh Ferriss, Ana's Coral Helix exploited the dramatic potential
of the subject through the contrast of light and shadow."
Thanks to both Bob Currie, AIA, and Ana Monnaco, for their sensitive, skillful
and beautiful renderings. Architecture has never looked better.

We understand the insurance needs of the architectural community.

With a great deal of excitement and anticipation,
I begin my year as AIA Florida President. First of all,
the new and old Executive Committee, AIA Florida
Staff, representatives from Puerto Rico and US Virgin
Islands and the State Director-at Large have been
hard at work establishing a five-year plan for the asso-
ciation during our Executive Committee retreat this
past December. We have come up with a strategic
plan, which we will share with the Board of Directors
in January and we are hopeful that it will be adopted
in March after a work plan and budget are presented.
This plan will establish long-range goals that can
be programmed, researched and implemented by our
staff notwithstanding our yearly leadership changes.
Our Vision includes collaboration, growth, advocacy, knowledge, strong active com-
ponents, leadership, and community with five bold steps to reach our vision. The five
bold steps are to (1) Connect and mobilize members; (2) Develop and engage leader-
ship; (3) Collaborate with education; (4) Build the pipeline; and (5) Communicate
the AIA brand. Highlights of implementing our first year's goals are as follows:
SSince our world continues to get smaller, we want to reach out to the entire AIA
Florida/Caribbean region in an effort to position ourselves so the communications
within the region can be more helpful to region's architects as a whole. In the event
that Cuba's current political situation changes, how may AIA Florida/Caribbean
Architects be able to provide services to Cuba, the center of the region, in an effort of
outreach in not only humanitarian efforts but educational, technological, products,
and beyond? The ultimate goal is to have the entire region have a better, sustainable,
healthy environment to live, work and play. I will be establishing a task force to study
and recommend an action plan.
We wanted to encourage AIA Architects as leaders and creators of our environ-
ment to reach out with our knowledge and continue with our community service and
other humanitarian efforts. An example of the humanitarian effort would be the 1%
Solution program in which we would give approximately 20 hours per year of our
time pro bono and receive recognition comparable to that bestowed on fee-based
projects. Our staff will be looking to promote these efforts so the public will recog-
nize AIA Architects as leaders at this level. I am encouraging all AIA Florida Firms and
Members to pledge their support to this program. Let's get recognized as leaders in
helping all attain a healthier, sustainable environment.
Continue as the knowledge base for sustainable design. "The go to profession
for sustainable, green design. Good Design Does Matter." We must continue our leg-
islative efforts in Tallahassee during our visit to the "hill". It continues to be impor-
tant to lobby and offer our expertise in attaining better and more energy efficient,
green, sustainable design legislation. My challenge to you is the have the state of
Florida be the first state to adopt AIA National 2030 Challenge.
Lastly, we want to continue to expand the AIA Florida membership to include
and encourage more emerging professionals and affiliate members to be a more active
and integral part of the association. With greater involvement by the young profes-
sionals we can ensure our association growth and continue our role as leaders of the
community, leaders in good design, technology and humanitarian efforts
With the help of all AIA Florida members we can make it happen, and achieve
the goal of One AIA!!!

Safety Harbor Competition
Attracts Architects Worldwide
A competition to design a new
home for the collection of Tocobaga
Indian Artifacts from the Safety
Harbor Temple Mound at Philippe
Park in Pinellas County drew 29
submissions from around the world.
The Tocobaga are one of the lost
tribes of Florida. They occupied a
site jutting out over Old Tampa Bay
that was visited by Hernando DeSoto
in 1539. The Temple Mound is now
a National Historic Site and many of
the artifacts in the collection come
from the Smithsonian Institution's
excavations in Safety Harbor during
the 1930s.
In 2005, the Museum was given
land to build a new museum in
Philippe Park where the Indian
Mounds are located. Since money
has not been available for architec-
tural concepts or site planning, the
Emerging Architects of Tampa Bay
volunteered to work with museum
staff to write a program and design a
new facility. AIA Tampa Bay spon-
sored a competition in March 2007
and advertised it on the Internet,
producing an international response.
The First Place Award was present-
ed to Tetsuya Yamazaki, Yokohama,
Japan. Second Place was awarded to
TonyTsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong and
Third Place went to Shay McCarthy,
Tampa, Florida. Rob Hibbard and
Greg Zielinski, Washington, DC;
Dereck Ray, Tampa, Florida; and Joe
Phonnachakr and Qiana Oden,
Tampa, Florida, were awarded
Honorable Mention.

First Place Award "The Ideagram, Tetsuya Yamazaki, Yokohama, Japan
Review Comments: Space Age forms with the feel ofa primitive art object or piece ofjewelry made of oyster
shell. The building' cave-like interior would be a tourist attraction unto itselfin addition to displaying the col-
lection ofTocobaga relics. Floor plan is an interesting variation on a Mobeus Strip layout that captures the infi-
nite nature of time where each of our lives is a tiny segment of an endless path.

Second Place Award, "History Under Our Feet," Tony Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong
Review Comments: Grid work of boxes recalls the Smithsonian Excavation ofthe Safety Harbor Temple Mound in
the 1930s. Stratified earth is dug into to reveal hidden treasures ofthepast. Light boxes and berms minimize the muse-
ums impact on the delicate ecosystem ofPhilippe Park. Haunting existential image.

Third Place Award "Pre-View, "Shay McCarthy Tampa, Florida
Review Comments: See-through glass box minimizes a large building's impact on the wooded areas ofPhilippe
Park. Large cantilevered porch echoes traditional architecture of the Southeastern USA. Random column and
beam spacing are an abstract representation of the pines surrounding the site. Ephemeral cellophane-like enclo-
sure respects rural tranquility in an urban area.

door patio seating and meeting space
for large parties.

Wakefield Beasley & Associates,
Atlanta and Jacksonville, designed
the new Florida Capital Bank in
Daytona Beach that will serve
as headquarters for the bank's
Volusia/Flagler market. Construction
of the 8,300-square-foot facility has
recently been completed. The bank
will occupy most of the first floor and
all the second floor. One-third of the
first floor will be leased for retail.
Wakefield Beasley was also
recently awarded the contract to
design the interior of the FirstAtlantic
Bank in Jacksonville. The firm's
involvement includes the entire inte-
rior imagery for the 3,000-square-
foot project. Special space planning
requirements proved a challenge in
the design of a secure facility with a
glass facade. Construction was slated
to begin at the end of 2007.

HuntonBrady Architects, Orlando,
has designed a new, modern corpo-

Company/CB Richard Ellis Group,
Inc. in Orlando. The 13,500-square-
foot space is on the 19th floor of the
new Premiere Trade Plaza, a mixed-
use office building in downtown
Orlando. The new office is a balance
between edgy and elegant. It is
organized as a series of "villages" for
70 employees with work stations,
informal huddle rooms and a large
studio space in each "village."
Partially exposed concrete columns
allow the building structure to enhance
the character of the studio space, par-

Features in Brief

Dorsky Hodgson Parrish Yue,
Fort Lauderdale, has submitted
plans to the City of Fort Lauderdale
for a 27-story, mixed-use develop-
ment in the heart of downtown.
The proposed project includes 9,000
square feet of ground floor retail,
300,000 square feet of Class A office
space, a 200-key luxury hotel and a
10-story parking garage, all on a
0.88-acre site. The challenges in the
design of the project include the ver-
tical and horizontal integration of
the various proposed uses on a very
tight site and reconciliation of the
different modules required for the
proper functioning of offices, hotel
rooms and parking bays without any
structural transfer. The proposed
solution includes a super-grid over a
base structural grid to disguise
the varying floor-to-floor heights.

Varying the building forms through
the facade treatments worked to
break down and express the build-
ing's multiple uses and personalities.
A half-moon shape was created by
manipulating the edge of a recess in

the floor slab on each level. The
required screening of mechanical
equipment on the roof created an
interesting skyline that can be readily
identified with the building.

Centerplex Office Building, designed by The ADP Group, is expected to be completed in 2009 at a construction cost of $28,000,000.

The ADP Group, Sarasota, has
designed a new 30,000-square-foot
office building that will sit at a sig-
nificant bend in historic Ringling
Boulevard. The project is a contem-
porary design that enhances the
dynamic of its wedge-shaped lot.
The apex of the building floats over
a triangular public plaza, creating a
pedestrian connection between the
activity center and the adjacent arts
community. The powerful presence
of the apex will serve as the building's
focal point and a defining waypoint
for eastbound traffic moving toward
the building before it gently curves
around the north end of the site.
The innovative architectural lan-
guage compliments the dynamic
qualities of the site. At the broad end
of the triangular site, the external

treatment creates a "heavy" concrete
base anchoring the building. From
this base a "light" skin of wood and
glass gradually emerges and rises
above the plaza at the apex of the
site. The interaction and flow
between the light and heavy ele-
ments creates a tension that allows
the skin to appear to float.
The office complex will be inno-
vative not only in its architectural
language but also in its "green"
design commitment and in the selec-
tion of material and construction
systems to be used. The building's
green design will include high-effi-
ciency HVAC equipment, passive
solar design, energy-efficient glazing
and a single-ply reflective roof mem-
brane. Materials and construction
systems will include a high-density
composite panel composed of a phe-

nolic resin core faced with natural
wood coated with a highly protective
finish. The panels are installed as a
"rain-screen" system that diminishes
the forces attempting to drive water
into the building. This "rain-screen"
system also allows the air cavity
between the finish panels and the
building to create a stack effect so that
moisture quickly drains or evaporates.
The ADP Group will use the top
two floors of the building as its
architecture, planning and interior
design studio. The second floor of
the four-story building will be occu-
pied by the structural engineering
offices of Jenkins and Charland Inc.
and the ground floor will house
office and retail space. This project
will be the first phase of a 154,000-
square-foot office complex including
a 500-space parking garage.

Carlson Studio Architecture,
Sarasota, purchased the 1934
Cheney Building to serve as its new
corporate headquarters. The goal in
retrofitting an existing building was
to make it an environmentally
friendly and healthy workplace and
to provide a model for clients and the
public to see what sustainable design
looks like in a commercial setting.
To accomplish this, the project
was designed to meet the USGBC
rating system for the Silver LEED-
CI designation LEED for
Commercial Interiors. These guide-
lines help architects create an envi-
ronment that provides optimal occu-
pant comfort and productivity. For
this project, the architect had to
transform a 73-year-old grocery store
into an office that meets sustainabili-
ty standards in the areas of thermal

comfort, energy and water efficiency,
minimization of interior pollutants
and access to natural daylight.
To meet these goals, the building
envelope was improved with regard

to insulation, windows and roofing.
An Energy Star single ply membrane
roof system replaced the original and
glass doors and oversized windows
were added, as well as transparent
interior walls. The double pane,
impact resistant, low e tinted glazing
reduces solar heat gain, energy usage
and increases comfort.
New interior and exterior light-
ing, HVAC system and low flow
plumbing fixtures and motion sen-
sors further contributed to the
LEED Silver rating.

Looney Ricks Kiss Architects,
Jacksonville and Rosemary Beach,
purchased an unattractive, preexist-
ing house in Rosemary Beach for
$1,250,000. The size and location
of the lot made the purchase desir-
able and although the house had
never been occupied, the architects
were inspired to renovate and resell
the property at a profit.

*;' ,. t.. -, -

Some of the main issues facing
the original structure were the loca-
tion of all the living spaces, except
the bathroom, on the second floor.
There was a porch on each floor and
while the third floor porch offered a
wonderful view, the first floor porch
was dark and uninviting. The master
bath was spatially ill planned with
the tub taking up the majority of the
space and the toilet consigned to a
water closet. In addition, one could
not move from the master bedroom
to the master bath without passing
through a hallway.
Correcting all of these things
turned out to be a $1 million under-
taking. Looney Ricks Kiss gutted
the entire house and removed the
porches and the parking structure.
Wiring, plumbing and stairs were

removed. The first floor porch was
incorporated into one of the guest
rooms to double its size and French
doors and a lot of windows were
added to the house on all floors. On
the second floor, the porch space was
made into a kitchen/dining room
and a bathroom replaced the original
kitchen. On the third floor, the
architects enclosed the original
porch to create a study and reconfig-
ured the master bath so that a signif-
icant vanity could be added. Small
closets were replaced with a large
built-in unit that occupies one entire
wall of the bedroom.
The project took almost a year to
complete, but was recently recognized
with a 2007 Design Award by the
Jacksonville component of the AIA.

The Carter/Verplanck Office Building tampa
Gottfried, Garcia + Rodriguez/ Architects / AIA, Tampa, Florida

In 2005, CVW Group, LLC pur-
chased a 27,692-square-foot site on
which to build its new Mediterranean-
style office building. The project
program called for a 10,000-square-
foot office building with a small
warehouse and adequate parking to
support it.
It was soon discovered that park-
ing and storm water retention would
monopolize the ground floor, leav-
ing very little space for building.
Studies were prepared indicating
that only by limiting the ground
floor building area to that required
for the lobby and warehouse, could
parking, the retention area and land-
scaping be economically provided.
When it was determined that parking
would have to be located under the

office, the decision was made to move
away from the Mediterranean style
that typically has heavy massing at the

ground floor level. A new design con-
cept was approved and it evolved into
a bright, exciting workplace.

utive offices and a conference room
with a mini kitchen/bar and exterior
balcony. The south wing provides
general office space for customer
service, accounting and engineering
functions and a break room.
The ground floor is constructed
of reinforced masonry a pink and
grey "stone ground" faced block with
textured accent units. The second
floor skin is fiber-reinforced stucco
accented with an aluminum com-
posite panel system.

In the new design, walls and
landscaping were used to buffer the
parking and paved areas from each
other, the buildings and adjacent
properties. Normally some sort of
retention pond is required in the
Tampa Bay area because of the high
water table and poor soil drainage. It
is usually a dug out pond with slop-
ing sides of grass and dirt located
somewhere on site. This building
site was too small for that type of
pond so the architect created a cen-
tral "pool" with concrete sides, foun-
tains and patio and made it a feature
element around which the building
was wrapped. The pool allowed the
required retention volume in a very

compact space. The pool has a well
and pump to maintain the water
level during the dry season and it
receives rainwater from the roof via a
high wall scupper that creates a 28-
foot waterfall. Adjacent to the pool
is a patio area that's available to
employees for lunch and special
events. An open cantilevered stair is
suspended above the pool creating
dramatic access from ground floor
spaces to the second floor.
The offices on the second floor
border the pool on three sides. The
central core houses the lobby and
reception area and allows access to
the north and south wings. The
north wing accommodates the exec-

Florida Atlantic University's
(FAU) Christine E. Lynn School of
Nursing is golden LEED Gold.
The building is the first one of the
FAU campuses to achieve the covet-
ed LEED Gold certification from
the U.S. Green Building Council.
Initially, the project received LEED
Silver certification and was one
point shy of Gold. The strategy for
gaining the extra point was for the
University to become carbon neutral
through the purchase of renewable
energy credits to offset the power
used for lighting, cooling and heat-
ing. In essence, the University is
being run on "green power."
The architects took a unique
approach to university building
design by incorporating Feng Shui
concepts, a philosophy of correct-

ness, with elements of sustainable
design to create a place that sets a
new standard for academic build-
ings. With a reputation for innova-
tive approaches to nursing educa-
tion, the college is on the cutting
edge of design, both therapeutically
and technologically. By combining
ancient Chinese principles that focus
on nurturing and sensitivity with
green features, a building was creat-
ed that is in harmony with the envi-
ronment and responsive to the mod-
ern architecture of the campus. The
courtyard, for example, features
areas for meditation and contempla-
tion, as well as lush landscaping and
a water sculpture.

chemical and pollutant control,
lighting controls, low toxicity mate-
rials, 25 percent recycled content
and reduced energy consumption
that saves more than 17 percent in
operating cost as compared to a tra-
ditional building. The floors are
made of bamboo, a quick-growing
renewable plant, and the reflective
roof and glazed windows let in light,
but not heat. Outdoor lamps have
been strategically aimed to avoid cre-
ating light pollution around the
exterior of the building. A consult-
ant worked with the architects on
the application of Feng Shui princi-
ples so that all the interior finishes,
colors, materials and patterns relate
the facility to its environment.
The west side of the building has
spaces for public clients, a holistic
practice, a museum of nursing, prac-
tical simulation nursing labs, faculty
offices and a two-story open circula-
tion gallery. The student-oriented
east side has graduate offices, high-
tech classrooms and seminar rooms,
instructional resources and the
Dean's office. Completing the com-
plex is the 300-seat, long-distance
learning lecture hall.

Library West Addition/Renovation, University of Florida gainesville
Long & Associates Architects/Engineers, Inc., Tampa, Florida

This project re-envisioned a 40-
year-old library facility as a contem-
porary and forward-looking cyber-
cafe that reflects and responds to
patterns of learning and social inter-
action on a 21st century university
campus. Designed in conformance
with USBGC Leed v2 for New
Construction guidelines, this $24.2
million addition and renovation
project has received Gold Certification.
Every decision, from technological
integration to furniture design, was
carefully executed in support of the
LEED concept.
Required for optimum archival
storage of library materials, the proj-
ect maintains interior environmental
conditions at 700F and 50 percent
Relative Humidity while achieving a
30 percent reduction in energy use
beyond the allowable parameters of
the Florida Energy Efficiency Code.
The architects' challenge was to
reinvent an aging facility to meet the

needs of a contemporary library in
terms of technology, user functional-
ity, collections storage and access,
staff operations and student service.
The design houses 1.6 million vol-
umes and provides 1,600 seats in
comfortable settings for private
study and group interaction. Key
library issues ofwayfinding, access to
services, security and control were
integrated into the design with the
varied spatial requirements of collec-
tions, staff services and patrons.
A balanced palette of materials
and textures were selected to define
space and promote movement.
Functional elements are clearly
organized around an articulated and
highly textural circulation system.
The facility provides inviting and
stimulating interiors to promote the
development and sharing of ideas.
Custom furniture completes the
concept of a cybercafe that responds
to the social culture of a university.

The existing building was trans-
formed into an open plan layout that
maximizes daylight and views for
both users and staff.

as a "Book Box" dedicated to collec-
tion storage with reading spaces
around the perimeter. The use of
compact mobile shelving maximizes
storage in the smallest possible vol-
ume. The library addition complet-

on the existing structure and do it
with a small budget. The final

and installation of ground floor

Giving Back to the Profession
Randy Stribling, AIA

"Twenty years from now you will be

more disappointed by the things you

didn't do than by the things you did."

Mark Twain

To the many members of the
Florida Association of the American
Institute of Architects who have
given so generously to the Florida
Foundation for Architecture, thank
you for your support over the years.
Your financial contributions have
funded scholarships and activities
that promote this beloved profession
across the state.
Certainly we, as architects already
have a passion for the built environment
and understand the legacy it pro-
vides our future generations. The
Foundation is dedicated to advocat-
ing the value of architecture to audi-
ences beyond the profession. The
Foundation establishes and funds
programs and activities that enhance
the public's understanding of the
value of architecture.
Recently, for example, the Fund-
ation participated in a two year pub-
lic awareness program titled "Design
Matters" that has been shared with
community leaders, politicians, and
civic organizations extolling the
sometimes subliminal virtue of good
design and encouraging citizens to
demand good design as a right rather
than a privilege. More than 5,000
copies of the Design Matters DVD,
the centerpiece of the program, have
been distributed nationwide to date.
How can we continue such pro-
grams? There is only one way, through
the ongoing personal and corporate
contributions we receive on a volun-
tary basis from you. And we want to

make that process easier and more
mutually beneficial. As a 501 (c)(3)
organization, the Foundation is a qual-
ified charitable organization that
allows you to both donate to your pro-
fession and qualify for a tax deduction.
By including the Foundation in
your charitable giving and estate
plans, you can make the most of your
personal and financial goals. Even bet-
ter, the federal government now offers
generous tax incentives for individuals
who make gifts to charities.
One way to magnify your giving
to the Foundation is through the gift
of a life insurance policy. These gifts
can be existing policies or new poli-
cies purchased specifically for this
purpose. The benefits of using life
insurance as a part of your charitable
giving program can be enormous.
Take a look at your current cir-
cumstances. Like many, you may
have a life insurance policy that you
no longer need for its original pur-
pose. For example, many people
bought life insurance to cover a home
mortgage that has since been paid off.
Perhaps you've left your practice in
which, as a key person, you purchased
a policy to cover a business need. In
any event, your changing circum-
stances may have freed up a policy
you can give away. Why not consider
giving that paid-up life insurance pol-
icy to the Foundation?
Or, why not purchase a new pol-
icy? Purchasing a life insurance poli-
cy to benefit the Foundation starts

with the application process. Once
the policy is in effect, you can turn it
over to the Foundation. Making
your annual contributions through
the Foundation entitles you to an
income tax deduction and the
Foundation then uses your annual
contributions to pay the life insur-
ance premiums each year.
The policy builds cash value over
the years that the Foundation can
use to fund educational programs,
scholarships and other architectural-
ly related philanthropic activities. At
death, the policy proceeds are paid
to the Foundation. You have the joy
of knowing you have made a gift
that will outlive you and that con-
tinues to support your profession.
As an example, a 50-year-old man
in "standard" health could purchase a
$10,000 life insurance death benefit
for only $341 per year. That's less
than $30 per month. Illustrations for
your specific circumstances are avail-
able upon request.
Of course, the Foundation
always welcomes an outright, no-
strings attached gift. An outright gift
of cash offers simplicity and is nor-
mally a way for you to make small
donations easily and pain free. If, on
the other hand, you'd like to make
an even better gift, an outright gift of
appreciated marketable securities
offers the dual benefit of a tax
deduction and the avoidance of cap-
ital gains tax.
What's in it for you? If you own an
asset that has appreciated in value over
the years, you are familiar with the tax
liability associated with selling that
asset. Taxes on capital gains of highly
appreciated stock or real estate can
make it impossible for you to sell the
asset because of the taxes that would
become due upon sale of the asset.

florida / caribbean ARCHITECT
winter 2007-2008

For Emerging Professionals
Jedd W. Heap, Associate AIA

On the other hand, giving the
appreciated asset to the Foundation,
for example, allows the Foundation to
sell the asset as a non-taxpaying entity
and avoid taxes due on capital gains.
Your estate would be entitled to
an estate-tax deduction for any
bequest given to the Foundation.
The federal estate tax savings can be
quite impressive. Charitable contri-
butions made by will are fully
deductible provided the property
given is included in the taxpayer's
gross estate.
If you are looking for a way to
"give back" to the profession that
has given so much to you, these are
some win/win options to add to
your repertoire. If you'd like more
information on the Florida
Foundation for Architecture's
planned giving program, please
email aiaflanews@aiafla.org.

If you have been licensed less
than 10 years, you are an emerging
professional (EP). As such, there are
numerous opportunities at your
doorstep. AIA Florida is working to
help you develop into the professional
you strive to be. In October 2007, the
Third Annual AIA Florida Emerging
Professionals Conference was held in
beautiful Sarasota at the Lido Beach
Resort. This weekend event was a
great chance for emerging profession-
als (architects, interns, and students) to
get together and learn about what
looms ahead in our careers.
The theme of the event was
"Alternative Practice," with keynote
speakers who presented an alternative
look at the traditional practice of
architecture. Speakers included PLY
Architects from Michigan and Plexus
R&D from Atlanta, while the gener-
al sessions included IDP & ARE sem-
inars, Marketing 101 for Architects, a
panel discussion about Light Rail in
Florida and the Path to Ownership.
The emerging professional represen-
tatives on the state and local boards
planned the conference.
To kick off the conference,
Florida associate directors or other
representatives from local AIA chap-
ters joined in a leadership summit
which gave us the first chance to get
together and discuss the challenges
of our positions and exchange ideas
about how to better provide for our
membership. These discussions
helped us see that our concerns with
chapter support and member partic-
ipation are fairly universal. Several
chapters had to create the position of
associate director in order to send a
representative to the leadership sum-
mit. This alone is a great step for-
ward for EPs, who now have repre-
sentation at all levels. Look for more

changes in the future at the associate
level and get involved in your chap-
ter. Thanks to AIA Florida and the
Florida/Caribbean Region for pro-
viding scholarships to the associate
directors of each chapter to attend
the conference.

Some things you can do and
should know:
If you are interested in working
on an event or program for EPs, con-
tact your chapter. They are always
looking for fresh ideas.
You can use professional CEU's
toward your IDP credits.
Bring a friend or coworker to the
next chapter meeting. Most meet-
ings are open to all interested parties
and it's a great way to recruit new
Any person working for an archi-
tect can be an Associate member, not
just graduates.
If you or someone in your office
has recently graduated, you/they can
get a free Associate membership.
Visit www.aia.org and search for
"graduate membership."
Principals, offer to pay for your
employee's membership and encourage
involvement. It's a great way to develop
leadership and networking skills that
are needed in our profession.

State Director-at-Large.

2007 Annual Report

In a timing coincidence, Mark Smith, AIA,
LEED AP chose to focus on sustainability during his
presidential year while, across the country millions of
people learned about sustainability. Now, more than
ever, we are in tune with the environment and the
effects our actions have on the world around us. From
energy efficient light bulbs to recycling and to mandat-
ed environmental standards for public buildings, peo-
ple are realizing that they can contribute individually
for the collective good.
This year's convention titled "Sustaining Our
Future" included courses geared toward architects, inte-
rior designers and others to learn more about environ-
mentally-friendly materials and ways to implement
them into design. The convention was held at the
Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando from July
26-29, 2007. It was the second highest attended con-
vention with 545 attendees and the highest attended
convention for a non-licensure year.
AIA Florida created its first ever online course. The
course was taught by Larry Schneider, AIA and includ-
ed accessibility codes compliance. It was marketed to
all architects with Florida licenses all across the country
and was a huge hit. More than 700 Florida licensed
architects logged on. In addition to the online venue, it
was also offered on a 2-disk DVD.
AIA Florida Emerging Professional leadership partic-
ipated in the first ever Leadership Summit held in con-
junction with the 2007 Emerging Professional
Conference. Leadership from 11 local components met
in Sarasota on October 26, 2007 to discuss issues relat-
ing to associate membership, IDP processes and compo-
nent best practices. Suggestions were made to improve
communication between associate membership, students
and the governing body of the association.
AIA Florida membership grew to 3,560 architect,
associate, and Emeritus members (8.6% increase); 485
firm members (1.25% increase), and 130 allied mem-
bers (13.5% increase). Due to the great membership
outreach of AIA Florida, a Component Excellence
Award for Membership Overall Program was presented
by AIA at Grassroots in February.
AIA Florida also helped the state take a big step
toward becoming green and sustainable. AIA members,
AIA Florida EVP Vicki Long, CAE and other "green
constituencies" provided testimony to the House

Energy Committee resulting in legislation requiring
environmental standards for state-owned buildings and
the Green Schools Pilot Project. Unfortunately the bill
was vetoed by the governor because it "didn't go far
enough" but ensured AIA Florida's further participa-
tion at the Governor's Climate Change Summit.
Miami architect Jorge Kupperman, AIA attended the
Summit to represent AIA Florida and discussed the role
of the design community in producing urban design
for greater walkability, improved health, and reduced
environmental impact.
The AIA Florida website was upgraded this year to
include a new online "shopping cart" for contract doc-
uments that provides an easier and secure experience, a
new continuing education and convention registration
system, and a component clearing house with informa-
tion on membership recruitment and retention.
AIA Florida headquarters was in the spotlight this
year. In the process of scouting locations for the movie
"Recount," HBO approached AIA Florida about film-
ing the final scene of the movie in the headquarters
conference room. The architecture of the office and
room were exactly what they were looking for a non-
Tallahassee, sleek, edgy and modern boardroom. The
movie dramatizes the 2000 presidential election in
Florida and will be aired in 2008.

Legislative Accomplishments

Legislative Achievements
* Provided testimony before the House Energy
Committee resulting in a mandate to build energy effi-
cient state-owned buildings that meet environmental
standards from sustainable materials, and requirements
that all county municipal and public community col-
lege buildings be constructed to meet the USGBC
LEED rating system, Green Building Initiative's
Green Globes rating system or a nationally recognized
high-performance green building rating system. The
legislation (HB 7123 on energy) was vetoed because it
"didn't go far enough" but ensured FA AA's further par-
ticipation at the Governor's Climate Change Summit.
* Fought off challenges to amend Florida Statutes
affecting CCNA. Amendments that would have
increased the thresholds for construction costs and for
professional fees thereby exempting more projects from
the CCNA process.
* AIA Florida hosted a Legislative "Day On the Hill"
during the Legislative Session. Over 50 architects from
around the state joined together for a full day of meet-
ings with legislators to discuss green legislation and to
educate members on the important role architects can
play in solving a portion of the very complex issues sur-
rounding global warming and the built environment.

AIA Florida members attended the briefing for the annual Legislative Day in

Florida Architects Political Action Committee
Although it was an off election year, FAPAC supported
many campaigns around the state. FAPAC members
met with candidates to discuss the importance of archi-
tects in the planning process and how they can be a
resource for elected officials at all levels.

The Orlando Chapter hosted a very successful
Breakfast of Champions event honoring Representative
Dean Cannon. There were 26 architects in attendance
and $3200 was raised for the Representative's 2008 re-
election campaign.

The Design Matters DVD, a collaborative effort
between AIA Florida and the Florida Foundation for
Architecture was distributed a year ago to all magazine

To date over 5,000 copies have been distributed across
the country.

In 2007, the AIA Florida Speakers Bureau was reinvig-
orated and a tool kit containing support materials for
the DVD was distributed to the 36 volunteers. These
volunteers have sent the message in their local commu-
nities that Design Matters.

In 2007, the balloon payment on AIA Florida head-
quarters became due. It was agreed to refinance the bal-
ance due and fund the second story renovations to mod-
ernize staff work space. The renovations assured that the
building reflected its membership both in form and
function. Due to AIA Florida's strong cash position,
staff recommended transfer of $100,000 from operating
funds to pay down the new debt service. Today, a bal-
ance of less than $75,000 is owed on the property that
is conservatively valued at $1 million. This unbudgeted
expenditure is not reflected in the accompanying charts.
