For the next year I have the privilege of serving as President of the
Los Angeles Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. AIA/LA
has over 3,000 members and is one of the largest chapters in the
United States. Yet this is not a propitious time to be an architect,
what with all the layoffs and the sense amongst almost everybody
I encounter that architecture is going nowhere fast.
Architects are frustrated. Just at the moment when cities,
decision-makers, branders and the public at large began to take
architecture as a subject of serious interest, the rug has been pulled
out from under the profession. Thousands are out of work. New
projects are not beginning. Prospects seem dim. In a time when
trillions of dollars are being spent in the rescue of banks, and billions
more will in all likelihood be spent on great public engineering
works such as roads, as architects, we and what we work on run the
risk of being forgotten - no, worse - defined as irrelevant. Architecture
must not be dismissed in this time of economic challenge as the
luxury you add on after all of society's other ills are addressed.
Each of us who volunteer to be AIA/LA President are asked to think
of a theme or organizing principal to guide our year. In a moment of
larger challenge such as this, it is easy to forget that architecture and
urban design matters. I can think of no better theme when our
profession is so discouraged. Both as a practice and as a subject of
engagement for our communities and our city we must remind all,
now more than ever, that architecture and urban design matters.
How does it matter? There are at least four key ways; as an economy
that should be supported, as a practice that promotes sustainability,
as a means to more efficiently make key decisions regarding the
future of our urban environment, and as a practice that helps ensure
the competitiveness of our region.
First, we must remind ourselves that we are a significant local
industry. There are hundreds of architecture firms large and small in
Los Angeles employing tens of thousands of designers. They in turn
feed a larger building industry that delivers the housing, places of
education and worship, work places and entertainment destinations
that house a population that will continue to grow. As a micro-econ-
omy, architecture and urban design matters because architects are a
key industry within a vital building economy that powers and
shelters regional prosperity. The diminishment of our industry
portends lesser prospects for the greater good. Supporting the
architecture industry in ways subtle as well as direct leads inevitably
to increased vitality throughout the region.
A second way architecture and urban design matters is the manner
in which it increasingly fosters the sustainability of our daily lives.
Indeed, architects now manage the information systems and
technologies of sustainability. Architecture and urban design
practices are saving energy, reducing dependence on foreign
oil, leading to community designs that encourage walking and
sociability and reducing our collective exposure to toxic materials
and environments. Architecture and urban design matters because it
is ever more entwined within the health, safety and welfare of our
individual and communal lives.
Third, architecture and urban design matters because through
the utilization of the tools of our profession, mainly intelligent visual-
ization, communities agree to move forward with new projects, the
libraries and schools and homes and retail centers of our near and
distant future. No community in Los Angeles at this point, rich or
poor, brown, black, yellow or white is willing to nor should accept a
second rate built environment for themselves or their children.
Architects visualize future visions better than any other profession.
Along with the technology of sustainability, the technology of
visualization is a key medium by which consensus is now reached.
Architecture and urban design matters because it serves a a critical
and artful medium for new agreements and new hope. In the
planning for our near and long-term future we have to insist
upon this type of visualization, not only because it is good for the
economy of the profession, but because it is essential to forging
forward with the projects that will define the 21st Century.
But it is not enough to plan and visualize sustainably sound and
beautiful environments. We must make them. There is no doubt in
my mind that tremendous funds will be spent in coming years on
infrastructure projects. Architects must insist that some of this
stimulus be spent on improving not simply the efficiency of our cities
and towns, but also the sustainability, quality and beauty of the
urban environment as well. In a 21rst Century world all places are
created equal, but those that attend to their sustainability and
amenity values, that aspect of the city that incorporates delight as
well as commodity and firmness, will find themselves more equal
than others. For Los Angeles to compete in the coming decades, for
our City to be attractive and competitive on a national and world
stage, architecture and urban design has to matter. It defines the
difference and is the difference maker now more than ever.
Perhaps as architects and designers this is all obvious. But I think
we do not spend nearly enough time or energy articulating these
ideas, and many other related ideas, to all of our friends and our
publics. Each of us in the coming weeks and months should feel
comfortable remembering and representing the crucial importance
of architecture and urban design matters and not be discouraged by
the difficult times and premature thoughts of our professional
demise. When Los Angeles emerges fromthis present moment , and
we will emerge, we will be a better city if during this time of
challenge architecture and urban design mattered.
Over the next year let each of us renew the beautiful optimism of
building that is embedded in our diverse practices. Let us not
be afraid in our thoughts and daily lives to speak and practice
architecture and urban design matters knowing that it matters now
more then ever. Join a committee that interests you, volunteer
to serve on a neighborhood council, come together in fellowship
within our and allied professions. Speak to the matters and delights
of architecture and urban design and know that you are making a
positive difference in doing so.
I look forward to working on this theme and evolving a common
agenda with all of you that reminds all of us and our publics of the
critical and positive role of our profession and our work in the
making and remaking of our environment and our city.

In his installation address, our new President, John Kaliski, pro-
claimed that, "architecture and urban design matter". This simple but
powerful statement is an important one to remember given the
troubled economic times that we are living through. As John
pointed out, we are a critical component of a key industry, of the
development of sustainable practices and improving our built
environment, all key elements to the health of our community.
John, of course, is right: "architecture and design matter," and so
do architects.
The AIA was founded on the idea of architects helping their
community and architects helping each other. I know that many of
us were drawn to our profession because of our desire to help our
communities, our environment and our society. In order to
continue to serve this noble goal as we move through this period of
economic recession, it its more important than ever that we
remember to help each other.
My goal for 2009 is to assist John in enhancing the value that AIA/LA
brings to our members, through the services that we provide during
this next year and by strategically planning for ways to do this in the
future.
Today we are challenged to do more with less. And, given the tough
economic times, the priorities for many of our members are
changing. To ensure that we’re maximizing the value of member-
ship, and using our resources most effectively, we need to ask the
question: "what do you need most?" and adapt our services to meet
those needs.
Providing vehicles for individual members to both elevate and
communicate their value to the marketplace may be a priority for
many. Some examples of this include communication about job
opportunities and continuing education programs. New processes
and tools such as BIM, alternative project delivery methods, and
sustainable technology and methods will be a crucial part of the way
we work. Being knowledgeable in these areas and others will impact
the ability of our members and their firms to compete and sustain
their practices.
Because architecture, urban design and architects matter, we must
continue to advocate for the change of policies and positions that
are supportive of, and of benefit to, the practice of architecture and
our members. The process of practical politics as it relates to our
environment requires the input of architects as well as politicians.
The Political Outreach Group and other related committees have
been instrumental in making progress; we need the momentum to
continue. Strengthening the connections between our committees
in this area and others will be vital to our success in achieving results
that are greater than the sumof our individual efforts.
Today our Chapter has 3,000 members. Given the economic climate,
this may be the time when our members have to ask the tough
question: “Is membership in the AIA worth it?” The better we do in
demonstrating the value of membership, the more value we will be
able to deliver. We also need to continue to invest in expanding our
membership by engaging the emerging professional community,
those not yet licensed. We need to create ways for themto knowthe
value of membership and encourage themto join us.
How can we demonstrate that architecture, urban design and
architects matter? By getting involved. I urge you to join me in
helping John and our Board find ways to do so by sharing your ideas
on the ways we can be responsive to our members' needs and to
today's external forces. I encourage you to participate in the great
work being done by our committees, to take part in Chapter
events and to make new connections fromwhich we can all benefit
personally, professionally and as a community. I look forward to
working with you to provide leadership and services that can
support us now and in future.

The winners of the juried competition, a part of the 2x8 exhibition,
were announced during the opening night reception. University of
California, Berkeley, student Son N. Nguyen won top honors for his
project, "Unnatural Selections," taking home a $5,000 cash prize.
Originally completed as his graduate thesis, Nguyen's project is an
island city that generates enough bioenergy from algae to sustain
itself and the city of San Francisco. It was designed as a reclamation
of San Francisco Bay's Treasure Island.
Nguyen's interpretation of the exhibit theme, SKIN, manifests as a
living and breathing membrane—in the form of vegetated walls
and roofs, rooftop retaining ponds, and the landscape—that
allows light and air to penetrate to the interior of structures
while absorbing water and pollutants. His city's structural design,
emulating the diverging and interlacing patterns of coral reefs,
rivers, trees, and other elements of nature, is based on his mathemat-
ical study of nature's logic of branching. Nguyen says he used the
concept of branching to explore ways to maximize surface area
while minimizing materials and to create an architecture that treats
the environment sensitively.

project, "Unnatural Selections," a city of the future that breathes
through a membrane of vegetated roofs and walls and retention
ponds. Nguyen's island-city project is designed as a reclamation
of Treasure Island in the San Francisco Bay.
Other students recognized for their projects are Los Angeles
Institute of Architecture and Design student Kathryn Purvlance, who
received a $3,000 prize; SCI-Arc students Midori Mizuhara, Patrick
Shields, and WilliamLopez, who split a $3,000 award; Salvador Ceja,
Daniel Phillips, and AndrewThompson, who each received a $1,500
prize; Karina Davtyan and Ryan Klinger, who split $1,500; and Tai-Li
Lee and Omar Ureta, who each received a $750 award.
Student design work, housed in a series of mobile storage pods
supplied by sponsor PODS: Portable On Demand Storage, was
judged by a jury of three architects: Li Wen, AIA, of Gensler; Annie
Chu, AIA, principal of Chu+Gooding Architects; and Joe Day,
principal of deegan-day design.
2X8 MISSION
The AIA/LA Academic Outreach Committee, having established the
AIA/LA AOC Scholarship Fund and awarded prizes and scholarships
since the inception of the 2x8 in 2002, is working aggressively this
year to solidify a long-termendowment towards to recognizing and
supporting future generations of emerging Architects. Winning
students take home scholarships in varying amounts. So far, 2x8
exhibitions have raised more than $55,000 in scholarship funds
redistributed to California design students. Remaining donations
are put toward an ever-growing endowment established for future
student scholarships.
Last year’s sixth annual 2x8 exhibition wass entitled SKIN. Each
academic institution was given the freedom to incorporate,
define or manipulate the title phrase at their discretion, creating a
remarkable range of ideas and imagery illustrated in the selected
projects. In addition to these presentations, student-run forums at
the exhibit space extended a critical discourse on design and its
impact in the local and global community.

AIA LOS ANGELES GOLD MEDAL WINNERS
& PRESIDENTIAL CITATIONS
The GOLD MEDAL
The AIA/LA Gold Medal is the highest honor that The American
Institute of Architects Los Angeles Chapter can bestow on an
individual. It is conferred by the President of the Board of Directors
in recognition of a significant body of work of lasting influence on

Any individual (not necessarily an American or an architect), living or
dead, whomthe President believes qualified is eligible to receive the
Gold Medal. No more than one such award shall be made in any year.
Criteria
Candidates will be evaluated on how well they meet the program
criteria as established by the President, which may include:
• The candidate shall have evidenced great depth, having a
cumulative effect on the profession of architecture
• The candidate shall have evidenced great breadth, having
influenced the direction/profession of architecture
• The candidate shall be an individual whose contributions to the
profession of architecture have consistently been directed toward
the future as well as respectful of the past
• The candidate shall have evidenced the ability to transcend
specific areas of expertise or shall have made connections
between areas, in the event that the candidate's areas of focus
might be considered circumscribed
• The candidate shall be widely known by the quality of his or her
products: by those who practice architecture, by those who teach
architecture, and by those who perhaps do neither

AIA LOS ANGELES CHAPTER HOLIDAY PARTY & BOARD INSTALLATION
On Monday, December 8, 2008, more than 300 AIA/LA members gathered at the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center, designed
by FSY Architects, Inc., for our annual Holiday Party. The evening began with refreshments, and then the crowd adjourned to the theatre
for the formal installation ceremony. Incoming Board President John Kaliski, AIA, acknowledged the accomplishments of the outgoing
Board, welcomed the newly elected Board members, and addressed the challenges of the coming year and how we intend to face them
as a Chapter.

2008 AIA LOS ANGELES DESIGN AWARDS
PRESENTED BY GENSLER
The Best of LA Architecture Applauded
Fromthe first LEED Platinummuseumin the world to a tiny outdoor
classroomfor kids, the projects awarded by the American Institute of
Architects, Los Angeles (AIA/LA), revealed a wealth of superlative
design talent. Twenty-five awards were given to Los Angeles-based
architects for both built and unbuilt projects during a ceremony at
the new Broad Contemporary Art Museum (BCAM) at Los Angeles
County Art Museum(LACMA) on June 4, 2008.
In addition, the AIA/LA Presidential Honors, as well as the Cultural
Affairs Commission Architecture Awards were announced. Known
to be one of the most competitive in the country, the annual AIA/LA
awards programincludes the Design Awards for built projects by Los
Angeles architects, and the NEXT LA Awards for work that is unbuilt.
The Design Awards jury—Craig Dykers, Snøhetta, Oslo, Norway,
and New York City; David Lake, FAIA, Lake/Flato Architects,
Austin, TX; and Michael Palladino, FAIA, Richard Meier &
Partners Architects, Los Angeles—selected (in no particular order)
the following projects (jurors’ comments follow.)
DESIGN AWARDS
Honor Awards
Water + Life Museums and Campus, Hemet, CA;
Lehrer + Gangi Design + Build

and then in a very handsome building of this scale in this location
is quite a feat. This is a 100-year building.”
Art Center College of Design South Campus, Pasadena, CA;
Daly Genik
“To do adaptive reuse with this much artistry is remarkable. The
quality of light used is spectacular.”

expression, giving a sense that there is important work about the
planet going on here.”
Merit Awards
Dark Side of the Moon, Los Angeles, CA; Michael Maltzan
Architecture, Inc.
“This is not just a big gesture, but is socially active and intriguing
geometrically. I’msure I would have fun here!”
Hypo-Alpe-Adria Bank Headquarters, Udine, Italy; Morphosis
“A well detailed project that impresses by organizing the space
through orthogonal forms while activating the center.”
Ennis House Rehabilitation, Los Angeles, CA; Eric Lloyd Wright

to celebrate a garage?”
Ahmanson Founders Room, Los Angeles, CA; Belzberg Architects
“This space demonstrates a new methodology for creating interior
spaces.”
The Disney Store Headquarters, Pasadena, CA;
Clive Wilkinson Architects
“It’s a smart project, with the existing building left alone and new
forms inserted in a crafty way.”
Off-Grid iT House, Pioneertown, CA; Taalman Koch
“It’s innovative in its use of materials, and deals with construction in
a very direct way.”
Canyon House, Los Angeles, CA; Office of Hadley + Peter Arnold LLC

described in a clear and powerful—albeit gentle and subtle—way.”
Citations
Hyde Park MiriamMatthews Branch Library, Los Angeles, CA;
Hodgetts + Fung Design and Architecture

Pasadena, CA; (M)Arch.branded architecture

single pavilion has a character all its own.”
The Lofts @ Hollywood & Vine, Hollywood, CA;
Killefer Flammang Architects
“There are important social issues at work here—creating housing
fromexisting office structures.”
Tigertail, Los Angeles, CA; Patrick Tighe Architecture
“This has a sense of grandeur to it—it has a big ego for a small
house.”

ISSUE
Ordinances allowing new billboards in Los Angeles
lead to needed amenities but undermine existing
ordinances meant to limit billboards. At present, City
of Los Angeles billboard policy is inconsistent. Even as
the City struggles to identify and regulate existing off-
site signage, it moves forward with creative sign districts
and signage supplemental use districts that add new
off-site signs. New digital billboards raise the wrath of
neighborhoods throughout the City. Taking the time to
review existing policies and develop new ordinances will
lead to a consistent Los Angeles approach where off-site
signage is controlled with the benefits accruing to the
people of Los Angeles.
PROPOSAL
Adopt an interim control ordinance that prohibits the erection
of any new off-site signs within the City of Los Angeles except in
previously approved and adopted supplemental use districts and
creative signage districts. During this period the City should convene
a panel of citizens and professionals to recomend a Citywide policy
that consistently regulates billboards.
Recommendations
ere are at least three additional supplemental-use signage districts
proposed in Los Angeles. While the City seeks funds from these
billboard districts to realize important community-based projects, off-
site signage advocates justify overturning citywide ordinances limiting
billboards by pointing to the adoption of these same districts. In the
past Los Angeles has adopted ordinances that have sought to limit
billboards along freeways. Recent agreements allow for the erection
of more signage and digital billboards along these byways. Digital
billboards are now the source of both safety and welfare complaints.
Communities are concerned that these signs are hazardous to drivers
and intrusive to residential neighborhoods. At the same time there is
little understanding regarding just how much revenue off-site signs
generate and how much funding and consequent benefits the City
should fairly realize from these signs. e City is allowing the use
of its visual bandwidth without understanding how much that
bandwidth is worth.
Because more off-site signs and sign districts are being proposed,
because there are serious questions about traffi c safety associated with
digital billboards, because digital billboards are brighter and more
intrusive at night than anticipated, because the City may not realize
maximum revenue value from new or existing billboards, because
it is a long term City objective to reduce the number of billboards,
because one of Los Angeles’ most precious assets is its scenery and
viewscapes, because visual blight contributes to economic blight,
and because AIA|LA knows that cities do successfully limit and or
prohibit billboards and off-site signs, AIA|LA believes that now is the
time to pause, consider what type of citywide off-site signage policies
make sense, and develop new ordinances that both reflect community
values and beautify Los Angeles to the benefit of all who are attracted
to live, work and visit this City.
By adopting an interim control ordinance that prohibits the erection
of new billboards the City will create a period of time to study, debate
and determine new approaches to this issue. AIA|LA recommends
that the City establish citizen and professional study group to make
recommendations with regard to off-site signage policies. is
group should be staffed by the Department of City Planning and
other City departments as appropriate in order to facilitate realistic
recommendations that can be considered for adoption by the City.
AIA|LA looks forward to lending expertise and assistance in the
implementation of these recommendations.

ISSUE
In light of our region’s diminishing supply of water
and to ensure our ability to meet growing demand
for water, the City of Los Angeles must adopt
additional water conservation policies and become
a model of water effi ciency, reuse, and conservation.

conservation May 2008 initiative “Securing L.A.’s
Water Supply”.

PROPOSAL
DISCUSSION
Los Angeles is a temperate and generally dry climate, yet we land-
scape and use water as if we were in a humid and rainy zone. For
too long Los Angeles residents and landowners have taken clues for
how to live in this part of the world from ideas developed primar-
ily in the more humid climates of the East Coast and Europe. To do
so, Los Angeles imports water from most of the Southwest. is is
unsustainable from both an ecological and a social point of view. e
Southwest’s population is growing rapidly and its water supply is fixed
if not in decline. Now is the time to expand our water conservation
measures and policies.
e recommendations contained within “Securing L.A.’s Water Sup-
ply” are an excellent continuation of this City’s conservation efforts.
e initiative includes steps to enforce current water use restrictions,
encourage residence and business conservation through rebates, edu-
cate the public through an awareness campaign, expand the recycled
water network, and modernize dam, water treatment plant, and aqui-
fer infrastructure. But the most important aspect of the initiative is
the planned Tillman Wastewater Treatment Plant’s upgrade to enable
groundwater recharge of purified wastewater (currently the purified
wastewater is dumped in the ocean). e technology to implement
groundwater recharge is well tested and proven. It is even being done
by Orange County with a plant that came on line this year.
In addition, AIA|LA recommends the City of LA adopt the following
conservation and reuse measures:
• Work with the County and State offi cials to reduce restrictions on
grey water use
• Remove administrative obstacles to approved on-site storm water
retainage techniques.
• Require a combination of drought tolerant, native, and xeriscape
planting for the majority of landscape areas for all City projects and
all private projects over 50,000 sf
• Encourage drought tolerant, native, and xeriscape planting for
residential front lawns
• Encourage use of waterless urinals
Each practice has been implemented in a major municipality such as
Santa Monica, Phoenix or San Francisco. Wise water use will ensure
the City of Los Angeles thrives into the future. Adopting additional
water conservation measures will allow Los Angeles to lead the nation
into a sustainable future. AIA|LA looks forward to lending expertise
and assistance in the implementation of these recommendations.
AIA|LA requests that the City Council, the
Department of Public Works and the Department of
Water & Power embrace the Mayor’s initiative, and
work with regional and State water agencies to remove
code obstacles to technologies that use water more
than once. e City has done an excellent job of reducing water use
growth over the last twenty years even while the population has grown
significantly. While past effi ciency gains are important, the City must
continue to rethink how water is used – and reused.

LA
ISSUE
Los Angeles should create a distributed power
generation (DPG) network by encouraging its
customers to install on-site power generation in
excess of what than they can use. e mechanism to
achieve this result is called a “feed-in-tariff” or FIT.
Current policy at the Department of Water and Power
(DWP) discourages property owners who wish to
install on-site power generation.
PROPOSAL
AIA | Los Angeles requests the City of Los Angeles
through the Department of Water and Power adopt
a FIT to encourage DPG and endorse SB 1714.
rough its utility, the City of Los Angeles should
incentivize its customers to install more power
generating capacity than needed for their specific site. DWP should
adopt a FIT policy that pays customers for excess power generated
on-site and put on the grid (current policy allows for a credit in most
cases.) In addition, the FIT should be structured to pay customers at
rates that are comparable to “green” renewable generation rather than
“brown” carbon-based generation.
DISCUSSION
Currently the United States lags behind the world in DPG. America
generates approximately 5% of its power needs through DPG; this
compares to the developed world average of 10% and is a factor of 10 below
Denmark’s DPG percentage. In comparison to DPG, large scale remote
power generation has the following disadvantages:
• Uses large tracts of rural land and requires transmission lines which mar
the landscape
• Transmits energy over long distances and loses energy in transit ($20B
annually in the US)
• Is vulnerable to terrorist sabotage
In contrast, DPG has the following advantages:
• Provides power at the source of consumption
• Localizes infrastructure development and maintenance, and utilizes
developed land
• Improves reliability of the power supply
• Lessens strain on the power grid and reduces the need for additional large-
scale power plants
• Creates micro grids with the utility distributing customers’ excess power to
customers in the immediate vicinity
In this country, the obstacles to DPG are regulatory. Ample precedents
exist to make DPG work. Possibly the most successful use of a FIT to spur
renewable DPG is in Germany. From 2000 to 2005, dramatic growth in
Germany’s renewable energy market occurred with a doubling of “DPG”
electricity fed into the grid and a seven-fold increase in installed solar
photovoltaic capacity. By 2007 the German installed solar base was over
2,500 MW. By contrast, the installed solar capacity in the US is 150 MW
even though our solar resources far exceed those of Germany.
Germany’s success is directly attributable to it’s national FIT program. A
FIT encourages renewable DPG by creating a power contract where the
utility buys energy generated by a customer at a set rate for a set period of
time, typically 10, 15 or 20 years. For the rate to be effective, it must be
set at a level commensurate with the wholesale cost to produce the power
whether it be solar, wind, or other renewably generated power.
Recognizing FIT’s value in achieving the Renewable Portfolio Standard,
in September of 2006 Governor Schwarzenegger signed into law AB 1969
which authorized the State’s first FIT, applicable to large water and waste
water agencies. In February of this year, the California Public Utilities
Commission (PUC) expanded the program to include all investor owned
utilities. Currently under consideration in the State Assembly is SB 1714
which will require all utilities – investor owned and municipal – to accept
FITs. DWP should take a leadership position and implement a AB 1969 /
SB 1714 compliant FIT.
To help ensure a sustainable future, the City of Los Angeles through the
DWP should remove barriers to DPG and implement a FIT. AIA|LA looks
forward to lending expertise and assistance in the implementation of these
recommendations.

ISSUE
Coordinated policies that implement great and green
public streets and boulevards enhance the walkability,
sustainability, appeal and economic competitiveness
of Los Angeles.
Los Angeles’ 6500 miles of streets are the most visible
open spaces of this city. Yet these public resources are
too often given over to a single purpose - the primacy
of the automobile. Existing Los Angeles standards
lead to under-designed and under-utilized streets
limiting opportunities for pedestrians, bicyclists and
all who enjoy this city’s great outdoors. Los Angeles
streets should be treated as an urban living room
- the primary place where the people gather and
enjoy everyday life. Cities will increasingly compete
based upon the quality of streets and boulevards as
environmental and sustainable amenities that are used
and enjoyed by residents, workers and visitors. e
City should demonstrate a renewed commitment to
improve its streets and boulevards. Great streets are
green streets; Los Angeles has many, but so many more
are needed to realize the promise and value of our
environment and our city.

DISCUSSION
PROPOSAL
AIA|LA requests that:
• e City Council adopt and expand the street standard policies
developed by the “Downtown Street Standards” committee to the
larger city.
• City departments utilize the community-plan update process to
identify Great and Green Streets.
• Council Members identify specific Great and Green Street
demonstration projects within their own district that can be
immediately implemented.
• e City of Los Angeles appoint a task force made up of citizens
including representatives from the architecture and landscape
architecture communities to develop a long-term Great and Green
streets mission statement and propose policies incorporating funding
and maintenance criteria and design parameters. A range of City
departments and agencies should staff this task force.
In 20th Century Los Angeles street design policy prioritized the needs
of vehicular traffi c to the detriment of the environment, pedestrians,
bicyclists and transit riders. In 21st Century Los Angeles widened
sidewalks will encourage pedestrian use, trees and landscaping will
cool and filter polluted air, in-street storm water management will
address storm runoff and pollution, and bicycle paths will reduce
reliance on automobiles.
e Department of City Planning’s Urban Design Studio and the
Department of Public Works Green Street Committee have already
begun working to establish new standards for Los Angeles streets that
prioritize people and sustainability over cars. ese efforts should
be supported and expanded. AIA|LA recommends utilizing a broad
community planning process that involves the efforts of decision-
makers, citizens and staff to focus on the potential of streets to form a
key part of a great and green public realm. AIA|LA believes that well-
designed, multi-purpose streets become the environmental heart and
economic center of neighborhoods and communities. AIA|LA looks
forward to lending expertise and assistance in the implementation of
these recommendations.

ISSUE
e current Request for Qualifications (RFQ)
based method of selecting architects for City
projects limits competition and the ability of a
broader range of firms to compete successfully
for these City-sponsored projects.
PROPOSAL
e City should request that the Bureau of Engineering
determine means to amend the present RFQ selection
process and implement additional alternative methods
of selecting architects in order to capitalize on the diverse strengths
of an increased number of firms.
DISCUSSION
e present RFQ process places an undue weight on past experience
on City-sponsored projects and therefore limits the number of firms
that can effectively compete for a given project. e RFQ process
also requires a significant expenditure of time and money and lacks
emphasis on design as a selection criteria, discouraging many firms
from even entering the process. e AIA|LA recommends that the
present RFQ process be amended to include the following:
• Establish a two-phase submission process. A first phase of a
broadened selection process should seek overall professional
qualifications and evidence of quality design work. ese wider
ranging criteria would be the basis for a short list for a second phase
where the City’s needed due diligence process could be addressed.
• Allow more flexibility in the media that firms are allowed
to present their work. Consider allowing digital and website
submissions.
• Amend the selection/evaluation criteria. Split the 30% for
Technical and Past Experience into: 10% for municipal facility
project experience and 20% for all other types of projects.
Recommended additional and/or alternative methods for the
selection of architects are:
• Emphasizes the importance of design quality through portfolio
peer review. Establish design quality as an important criteria and
invite qualified peers to contribute to the evaluation of this factor of
consideration.
• Establish a small-project category. Create a small project category
for projects with construction budgets of 10 to 20 million dollars
for which the criteria of previous municipal experience would be
eliminated. Presently, City projects budgeted less than 10 million
are executed by the BOE staff.
• Establish more compensated competitions. Institute and fairly
compensate short-listed architects to produce design proposals in a
limited number of compensated competitions.
• Establish more open competitions. Strategically implement open
competitions for selected projects of broad civic significance.
In 2005 and 2006 AIA|LA worked with the Bureau of Engineering
to sponsor two symposiums where both City and State offi cials
participated and suggested some of the above recommendations
Other proposals were developed based upon the request of Council
members to provide specific recommendations for amending the
present RFQ process. AIA|LA believes that now is the time to
implement these concepts and looks forward to lending assistance
towards their adoption and implementation.
ISSUE
Key decisions that shape the future of
Los Angeles need to be considered from
a design point of view as well as other
points of view by City of Los Angeles
commissions, boards, and committees
whose actions influence the built
environment of Los Angeles.
PROPOSAL
AIA|LA requests that design professionals in general and architects
in specific be appointed to sit on the following commissions,
boards and committees. e list of such entities includes but is not
limited to:
• Affordable Housing Commission
• Area Planning Commissions of Central, East LA, Harbor, North
Valley, South LA, South Valley, and West LA respectively.
• Board of Airport Commissioners
• Board of Building and Safety Commissioners
• Board of Harbor Commissioners
• Board of Library Commissioners
• Board of Los Angeles Export Terminal
• Board of Neighborhood Commissioners
• Board of Public Works Commissioners
• Board of Recreation and Park Commissioners
• Board of Transportation Commissioners
• Board of Water and Power Commissioners
• Community Redevelopment Agency
• Cultural Affairs Commission
• Cultural Heritage Commission
• El Pueblo De Los Angeles Historical Monument Authority
• Environmental Affairs Commission
• Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles
• Industrial Development Authority
• Metropolitan Transportation Authority
• Metropolitan Water District of Southern California
• Planning Commission
DISCUSSION
Design professionals and architects are trained
to understand and think critically and creatively
about issues involving the built environment.
Numerous commissions, boards and committees
are empowered to create and implement policies
for the City of Los Angeles that have a significant
impact on the physical environment. Qualified
architects and design professionals such as
landscape architects hold too few of the positions
on these groups. AIA|LA maintains a list of
architects interested in serving as members of
the above mentioned commissions, boards and
committees; these names are available to the City
upon request. e City of Los Angeles will benefit
greatly by inclusion of architects in the decision-
making process concerning the built environment.

ABOUT THE AIA LOS ANGELES:
A LOCAL MEMBERSHIP GUIDE
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) is your professional
organization, providing social, educational and networking
opportunities; political and legal advocacy; and vital information
sharing for firms and individual practitioners nationwide.
Since 1857, the AIA has represented the professional interests of
America's architects. As AIA members, over 74,000 licensed
architects, emerging professionals, and allied partners express their
commitment to excellence in design and livability in our nation's
buildings and communities. Members adhere to a code of ethics and
professional conduct that assures the client, the public, and
colleagues of an AIA-member architect's dedication to the highest
standards in professional practice.
Mission Statement
The American Institute of Architects is the voice of the architecture
profession, dedicated to:
Serving its members…Advancing their value…Improving the quality of
the built environment.
Vision Statement
Through a culture of innovation, The American Institute of Architects
empowers its members and inspires creation of a better built
environment. The AIA promotes leadership, design excellence,
lifelong learning, ethical behavior, inclusiveness, collaboration, and
client- and member-centered service.
The AIA/Los Angeles is the fifth largest AIA chapter in the country,
and the largest in California. Our membership includes Architect
Members, (licensed anywhere in the U.S., and entitled to use the ini-
tials AIA,) Associates (candidates for licensure as architects, working
for a licensed architect, and/or recent graduates from accredited
architecture programs), Student Members, and Allied Affiliate
members (who work in allied areas such as interior design,
architectural photography, furnishings, and consulting.) More than
3200 members call the AIA Los Angeles Chapter home.
By definition, membership in the AIA/Los Angeles is held by an
individual, rather than by a company. The benefits of membership
are extended to that individual. As a courtesy, some firms pay all or
part of their employees’ membership dues.
What do I have to do to maintain membership?
Architect Members abide by the bylaws of the AIA at all three levels.
They must also follow a Code of Ethics, which governs legal and
professional conduct. In addition, Architect Members must fulfill and
report 18 hours of Continuing Education activity each year, 8 hours
of which must be in the area of Health, Safety and Welfare as
certified by AIA National. Four of the HSW hours must be related to
sustainability. These requirements help to maintain the integrity of
the profession, and offer the general public and potential clients
assurance that they can expect the best from AIA members.
Membership is from January to December or each year. Invoices are
sent out starting in November for the next year’s dues, and are
payable as of January 15. A grace period is in effect until March 31,
after which time all unpaid memberships are lapsed along with all
membership benefits.
What are the three levels of the AIA?
The AIA has a National level headquartered in Washington DC, a
state level (AIA California Council), and a local level (represented by
hundreds of local Chapters, of which AIA Los Angeles is one.)
AIA National oversees membership issues, publishes books and
widely accepted contract documents, and holds an annual
Convention and Design Expo in a different major city each year. They
have a library and archives (whose collection members may access
for a fee) and present a number of prestigious design and practice
awards on a yearly basis.
AIA California Council lobbies at the state level on issues that affect
architects and their profession. They are in charge of the annual
Monterey and Desert Practice Conferences, as well as the California
Council Awards. They also maintain a bookstore.
AIA Los Angeles oversees a full program of events for the
architecture and design community as well as the public. These
include a series of Home Tours, the Masters of Architecture lecture
series at LACMA, and numerous programs that provide year-round
educational, social and networking opportunities.
This structure allows AIA to communicate with officials at the city,
state and federal levels. Delegates from our Board and membership
work with representatives in support of legislation that will benefit
the architecture profession and the built environment. Activities
include an annual day of legislative visits in Los Angeles,
Sacramento and Washington; and an ongoing effort to keep
AIA members aware of openings on city and county planning and
design commissions.
Architects and Associates are members at all three levels and may
not “opt out” of any level. They must join a local Chapter, which is
located in the same community where they either live or work. Allied
Affiliates are generally “local only” members; however they may
choose to belong to California Council and AIA National if they have
business dealings statewide or nationwide.

About the AIA California Council
In 1944, at the request of California's existing AIA chapters, the
"California Council, The American Institute of Architects" was
chartered as a state organization by the AIA. In 1950, CCAIA was
incorporated as a non-profit California corporation. In 1992, the
name of the organization was changed to "The American Institute of
Architects, California Council." It is also known simply as the Council
or AIACC. Today, the AIACC is composed of 21 local chapters.

I’m a new member. What do I do now?
As a new member, you have almost limitless possibilities ahead of
you. Some of the first steps we suggest are:
Get familiar with the Archipages Directory—it contains
information on hundreds of firms and thousands of members,
Chapter resources and events, affiliated organizations, and useful
local, state and Federal government contacts.
Take a tour of the AIA local, state and national web sites. Each has a
wealth of information—much of it created exclusively for your use!
Create an aialosangeles search engine listing, and (for Architect
member-owned firms only) AIA National Architect Finder profile.
Join a Committee—more than twenty active committees meet reg-
ularly to discuss and create programming on specific topics such as
good design, urban planning, interiors and sustainable architecture.
How can AIA help me with marketing and promotion?
AIA provides many opportunities for you to get the word out
about your services or products. Apart from numerous social,
educational and networking events (many of which are available
for sponsorship), there are a number of ways to increase your
exposure:
Free individual listing in Archipages printed Chapter Directory for
Chapter members
Firm profile in Archipages—available to Chapter members for $35
($135 including photo)
Display advertising in Archipages
Free listing on the AIA National Find an Architect search engine at
www.aia.org—available to AIA Architect member-owned firms
Listing on the Chapter search engine at www.aialosangeles.org,
available to all Los Angeles Chapter members free of charge
Display advertising in LA Architect and
Architectural Record magazines
Event sponsorship, including Awards Gala and Design Meets LA
AIA National Convention and Expo (www.aiaconvention.com)
How does AIA/LA handle referrals?
The AIA/LA provides faxed lists of members to people looking for an
architect in a certain specialty (e.g. residential; mixed-use.) We also
maintain a list we call the “small project referral list” which is primari-
ly smaller firms whose work is mainly residential. Any architect mem-
ber in good standing may be included on this list.
In the interests of fairness we do not recommend any one
architect but suggest that people contact more than one firm to
discuss their project and compare costs and other details. We also
direct people to the online search engines at www.aia.org and
www.aialosangeles.org so that they can increase their number of
choices.
Does AIA provide insurance?
Insurance and other financial services for members at the National
level are offered through the AIA Trust. The AIA Trust works with
selected partners that meet the Institute's high standards of quality,
value, financial stability, service, and coverage. The Trustees are
dedicated to providing AIA members with solid, current information
to help with good decisions about complex and expensive matters.
The AIA Trust serves as your advocate in getting information and
claims handled properly and promptly. It receives no dues dollars
and is not a source of revenue for the AIA. For more information on
specific rates and products, visit www.theaiatrust.com or:
For healthcare, life, disability, and related insurances,

I’m a new member. What do I do now?
As a new member, you have almost limitless possibilities ahead of
you. Some of the first steps we suggest are:
Get familiar with the Archipages Directory—it contains
information on hundreds of firms and thousands of members,
Chapter resources and events, affiliated organizations, and useful
local, state and Federal government contacts.
Take a tour of the AIA local, state and national web sites. Each has a
wealth of information—much of it created exclusively for your use!
Create an aialosangeles search engine listing, and (for Architect
member-owned firms only) AIA National Architect Finder profile.
Join a Committee—more than twenty active committees meet reg-
ularly to discuss and create programming on specific topics such as
good design, urban planning, interiors and sustainable architecture.
How can AIA help me with marketing and promotion?
AIA provides many opportunities for you to get the word out
about your services or products. Apart from numerous social,
educational and networking events (many of which are available
for sponsorship), there are a number of ways to increase your
exposure:
Free individual listing in Archipages printed Chapter Directory for
Chapter members
Firm profile in Archipages—available to Chapter members for $35
($135 including photo)
Display advertising in Archipages
Free listing on the AIA National Find an Architect search engine at
www.aia.org—available to AIA Architect member-owned firms
Listing on the Chapter search engine at www.aialosangeles.org,
available to all Los Angeles Chapter members free of charge
Display advertising in LA Architect and
Architectural Record magazines
Event sponsorship, including Awards Gala and Design Meets LA
AIA National Convention and Expo (www.aiaconvention.com)
How does AIA/LA handle referrals?
The AIA/LA provides faxed lists of members to people looking for an
architect in a certain specialty (e.g. residential; mixed-use.) We also
maintain a list we call the “small project referral list” which is primari-
ly smaller firms whose work is mainly residential. Any architect mem-
ber in good standing may be included on this list.
In the interests of fairness we do not recommend any one
architect but suggest that people contact more than one firm to
discuss their project and compare costs and other details. We also
direct people to the online search engines at www.aia.org and
www.aialosangeles.org so that they can increase their number of
choices.
Does AIA provide insurance?
Insurance and other financial services for members at the National
level are offered through the AIA Trust. The AIA Trust works with
selected partners that meet the Institute's high standards of quality,
value, financial stability, service, and coverage. The Trustees are
dedicated to providing AIA members with solid, current information
to help with good decisions about complex and expensive matters.
The AIA Trust serves as your advocate in getting information and
claims handled properly and promptly. It receives no dues dollars
and is not a source of revenue for the AIA. For more information on
specific rates and products, visit www.theaiatrust.com or:
For healthcare, life, disability, and related insurances,
call the AIA Trust at 800-255-8215.

How do I get the Chapter e-newsletter?
To sign up for the biweekly Chapter e-newsletter, simply go to
www.aialosangeles.org. Under MAILING LIST, enter your email
address and then complete the rest of the information. You may
choose which interest categories apply to you. You will not receive
duplicate emails at the same address, and you may unsubscribe at
any time using the link at the bottom of the newsletter.
How do I change my address?
AIA uses one main membership database, known as TIMSS, for all
member contact information. Your individual member listing in the
Archipages directory is based on this data. From time to time we use
other databases for specific programs and purposes. Some of these
lists are designed for you to edit your own information; others can be
updated by AIA staff.
If in doubt, you may always email changes to
steve@aialosangeles.org and we will help make all necessary
corrections for you.
To update your official membership record:
Log on to www.aia.org/nav_updateprofile (Internet Explorer and
Netscape users only) or call 800-242-3837. Or you may email mem-
berservices@aia.org.
To update your email address for the Chapter e-newsletter
Click on the link provided in the e-newsletter. You may also change
preferences or unsubscribe using this link.
To update information in the AIA/LA (local Chapter) search engine
If you already have a profile on the www.aialosangeles.org search
engine, click on MEMBER LOG-IN and follow the instructions to edit
your information.
To update the National Architect Finder search engine
The new Architect Finder is a directory of Firms run by licensed archi-
tects who are AIA members. Contact information for individual AIA
members may be found with the AIA Member Lookup Tool in the
Members Center at www.aia.org (login required).
WHERE DOES THE FIRM DATA COME FROM?
The new Architect Finder is driven by data held completely within
the AIA. Members no longer need to contact any third party for
updates or to create data records. Local AIA Chapter no longer need
to "tag" your firm in another database.
I'VE BEEN A MEMBER FOR 25 YEARS!
WHY ISN'T MY FIRM LISTED?
Try using a broader search: don't select any building or service type
criteria, and use only a single keyword from your firm name.
We may be missing a crucial data element for your firm. We were
probably unable to identify a single individual as Firm Profile
Administrator for your firm, which is required to ensure accurate
data. If you are a Firm Principal, use the "FIRM (Login)" link above to
see if your firm record is available for editing. Once you supply the
name of Profile Administrator, your record will be updated as we
work through the pending changes, and should appear on the site
within a few days. While you are editing your firm data, be sure to
complete the "Profile II" section to provide fuller data that will let
your listing show up in more public searches.
MY SEARCH RETURNS NO RESULTS, BUT I KNOW THERE ARE
FIRMS THAT SHOULD SHOW UP.
The Architect Finder contains new data. Some service and building
type data was retained from the old Architect Finder whenever
possible, but many firms have not yet updated their profiles with
these data elements. Try again using a broader search, for instance,
just ZIP code or just a single keyword from the Firm Name.
THE DATA FOR MY FIRM IS WRONG. HOW CAN I CORRECT IT?
Firm Principals and designated Profile Administrator contacts are
able to edit firm profiles. Try logging in using the "FIRM (Login)" link
above and see if you can edit your firm's profile.
I CANNOT EDIT ANY FIRM PROFILE;
I AM "NOT A VALID ARCHITECT FINDER USER".
You may already be logged in to the AIA.Org web site as an
individual who isn't authorized to edit a Firm Profile. For instance,
you may be an Associate AIA member, or a Contract Documents
customer. At this time, only Firm Principals or designated Profile
Administrator contacts are able to edit firm profiles. Use the
"Member Logout" link at the top of the AIA.Org web site, or use
the "FIRM (Login)" link above and try logging in again with the
credentials of a Firm Principal.
We may need to correct our data! Please contact InfoCentral (info-
central@aia.org) and let them know you are a Firm Principal who
cannot edit their Architect Finder firm profile. Be sure to include all
the current data for your firm.
MY ENTIRE FIRM NAME IS NOT DISPLAYED;
WHY IS DATA LOST OR CUT OFF?
Some of our data fields may not be long enough to accommodate
the data you want to enter. For instance, Company Name is limited to
80 characters. Unfortunately, there is no immediate remedy for this;
you must provide a shorter name.
MY FIRM'S LOGO IMAGE IS MISSING;
I CANNOT ATTACH MY FIRM LOGO TO MY LISTING.
* Check File format - make sure you are using a JPG, GIF, or PNG
image file for your logo.
* Check File size - make sure your image file is not too large; logos
should be under 250 KB.
If you do NOT see your firm listed in the directory at
architectfinder.aia.org, please call 213-639-0769
or email steve@aialosangeles.org for assistance.

What are supplemental dues?
Supplemental dues are paid, in addition to individual member dues,
by members who own or manage architectural firms. They are based
on the number of licensed architects working for a company. The
principal pays a supplement to the local Chapter times the number
of architects employed. Firms where the principal pays local supple-
mental dues can receive the following benefits for their employees
from the Los Angeles Chapter:
Free copies of the Archipages printed member directory and reference
guide for employees
Member discounts on AIA contract documents purchased through the
Chapter Office
Discounted or free admission to selected Chapter events
and Pro Dev programs
Inclusion on our "small project list" for client referrals
Free listing on the www.aialosangeles.org search engine
One free Allied Affiliate membership for a selected eligible firm
employee (if a non-architect and not a candidate for licensure)
Are there discounts for educators or sole proprietors?
Currently, AIA Los Angeles Architect members who are educators
receive 50% off their local dues. At this time there are no discounts
for sole proprietors. The California Council is studying various plans
for possible new dues structures, but it is not certain if or when these
might take effect.
How can I get a new membership card or certificate?
New Architect and Associate members, and members who upgrade
from Associate to Architect, receive a card and certificate issued by
National, usually within 3-4 weeks after applying. Reinstating
members who have been members for less than five consecutive
years may receive a new certificate free of charge.
All other certificate requests cost $10 and may be made directly to
Membership Services at AIA National,1735 New York Ave. NW,
Washington DC 20006. Checks should be payable to AIA.
If a certificate was damaged in the mail or the name was misspelled,
you will need to return it to National before a new certificate is
ordered. Otherwise there is a $10 charge to have it replaced.
How do I apply for my architect’s license?
Contact the California Architects Board. Questions about IDP, candi-
date or licensee status, and other regulatory topics, can be answered
by the Board.

MOBIUS LA PRESENTS POWER LUNCH: MEASURE R
& ITS IMPACT ON THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT
Friday October 17, 2008
Measure R is a half cent sales tax increase (which passed on the
November 2008 ballot) that is expected to provide the local
resources to finance new transportation projects and accelerate
those already in the pipeline. Assemblymember Mike Feuer led a
discussion amongst several Mayors about Measure R with regards to
how it will impact the local municipalities, especially as it relates to
managing smart growth, expanding transit & mobility options,
providing a safer, more livable public realm, and moving the
planning process beyond politics.
Assemblymember Feuer was joined by Panelists:
Hon. Bill Bogaard, Mayor of Pasadena; Hon. Barry Brucker,
Mayor of Beverly Hills; the late Hon. Herb Katz, FAIA, Mayor of
Santa Monica; and Hon. Jeffrey Prang, Mayor of West

LOS ANGELES PREMIERE OF
“BIRD’S NEST: HERZOG & DE MEURON IN CHINA”
AT MOBIUS LA
Friday October 17, 2008
On Friday, the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Institute of
Architects presented a special screening of the documentary “Bird’s
Nest: Herzog & de Meuron in China” as part of MOBIUS LA. The
Schaub and Schindeim documentary “Bird’s Nest” follows the two
Swiss star architects, Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron, on two
very different projects: the national stadium for the Olympic sum-
mer games in Peking 2008 and an urban area in the provincial town
of Jinhua, China. The audience witnesses Herzog and de Meuron
literally building bridges between two cultures, two architectural
traditions, and two political systems.
“Bird’s Nest” profiles the architects as they find solutions not in the
comfort of an ivory tower, but in encounters and friction on the
ground. The film was screened in the SilverScreen Theatre of Pacific
Design Center. Light refreshments, sponsored by the Consulate
General of Switzerland and FORM: pioneering design, were served in
the theatre’s anteroom preceding the film.
HARD HAT TOUR:
LOS ANGELES POLICE ADMINISTRATION BUILDING
Saturday October 18, 2008
The final offering of MOBIUS LA 2008’s schedule of special events
was an exclusive hard hat tour of the Los Angeles Police
Administration Building, led by members of the project design team
from DMJM DESIGN | AECOM. Participants learned the inherent
challenges of working on a high profile public sector building, and
gained insight into how budget concerns were addressed by the use
of alternative materials and innovative energy sources.
Special thanks for tour arrangements go to DMJM DESIGN | AECOM,
City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Dept. and the Bureau of
Engineering, Dept. of Public Works, City of Los Angeles, Mayor
Antonio Villaraigosa, Ninth District Councilmember Jan Perry, and
the Los Angeles Police Department.

2008 RESTAURANT DESIGN AWARDS
The AIA/LA’s Restaurant Design Awards (RDA) honor excellence in
restaurant design. The competition is open to all individuals and
practices with both restaurant owners and architects/designers
invited to submit. Either the project itself must be located in LA or
the submitting individual/firm must be based in LA.
Submissions are accepted in three main categories: restaurants,
cafés/bars and lounges/nightclubs. The annual RDA Ceremony rec-
ognizes both Jury Award Winners as well as People’s Choice Award
Winners, as selected by votes collected on the AIA/LA website.
This year, AIA/LA assembled an all-star panel of judges to evaluate
the growing number of great submissions.
Joachim B. Splichal
Chef & Founder of the Patina Restaurant Group -
Hailed as one of the nation's "Legendary Chefs" by Bon Appetit,
Joachim Splichal is widely acknowledged as a contributing force
behind the growth of Los Angeles into one of the world's premier
dining capitals.
David Montalba, AIA
Founder & Principal of Montalba Architects, Inc. –
Recently awarded the 2008 Young Architect Award by the AIA, David
Montalba is a rising force in the design world. He won a Restaurant
Design Award in 2007 for I Dream of Cake. He also designed Kara’s
Cupcakes in San Francisco and the sumptuous Monique Lhuillier
boutiques in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles.
Michael Hodgson
Partner & Creative Director of Ph.D –
The range of AIGA/LA Fellow Award recipient Michael Hodgson’s
design influence extends from the Westside LA mini-mall to the
global think tank. Since establishing Ph.D in 1988, Hodgson has
designed visual programs and publications noted for crisp thinking,
clear expression and meticulous craft.
Margot Dougherty
Senior Writer with Los Angeles Magazine –
the go-to source for where to eat, where to shop, and what to do in
Los Angeles since 1961.
“Dining out in Los Angeles is like going to the theater,” says AIA/LA
Associate Director Carlo Caccavale, Hon. AIA/LA. “One expects a show.
With the ever-increasing popularity of the RDAs, we wanted to pro-
vide our members and the public with exactly that, another great
show of culinary achievement and excellence in design. We’ve chosen
an amazing panel of judges to help us find the very best in the city.”
On October 16, 2008, the AIA/Los Angeles announced the jury
award winners and People’s Choice Award winners for the 2008
Restaurant Design Awards. AIA/LA received a record-breaking
number of votes for the People’s Choice Awards from the public.
AIA/LA also recognized chef and restaurateur extraordinaire
Joachim Splichal for his outstanding contributions to this city,
bestowing upon him the first-ever Tastemaker’s Award. This marks
the fourth year of the AIA/LA’s much-anticipated awards program
that recognizes the very best in restaurant, café, and lounge design.
“We were thrilled with the outcome and look forward to growing the
competition even more next year,” adds Carlo Caccavale.
2008 FINALISTS
AIA/LA received over forty submissions in the three categories of
RESTAURANT, CAFE/BAR & LOUNGE/NIGHTCLUB. The esteemed jury
sequestered themselves in a room for five hours, poring over digital
submissions and graphic collateral material. After evaluating in
detail each project’s design concept, operational layout and overall
packaging, they identified the following list of finalists:
Restaurant
Blue Velvet designed by Tag Front
Comme Ca designed by KAA Design Group, Inc.
Katsuya Glendale designed by Starck Network/DesignARC

“We evaluated projects for their excellence both from an aesthetic
perspective but also from an operational standpoint,” explained
Joachim Splichal. “A good restaurant, café, or lounge must be
supremely functional behind the curtain of design.”
“It was refreshing to see how good, smart design can really give a
project with a limited budget or of a smaller scale such added
mileage and value,” added Margot Dougherty.
“There is definitely an elevated sense of awareness for restaurant
design in this city,” remarked David Montalba, AIA. “We’re seeing
some pretty phenomenal spaces out there.”
Michael Hodgson agreed. “With the quality of restaurant design in
this city, we hope that more and more designers will think of the
Restaurant Design Awards as a great platform from which to
promote their work.”

The American Institute of Architects Los Angeles would like to wish
you a very happy and prosperous year. It’s no secret that 2009
comes with many financial challenges, but, in times like these, we
look forward to doubling our efforts, reframing opportunities and
coming together to create a brighter future.
In response to the economic downturn, the Chapter’s first order of
business was to prepare a robust calendar of events for 2009. This
will offer the membership maximum opportunity for networking
with peers, connecting with the community and showcasing new
work. We will endeavor to create platforms for unique design
dialogues and ramp up marketing opportunities that will provide
larger visibility for you and your firm.
Becoming an AIA/LA member (or renewing your membership) has
never been as important as it is now. Let us help you maintain your
competitive edge in the marketplace. Here’s a brief overview of
some of the major events planned for next year:
2009 MOBIUS LA – This year AIA/LA is partnering with Dwell
magazine to create MOBIUS LA at Dwell on Design. This partnership
will allow us to grow MOBIUS LA exponentially as we offer 3 days of
back-to-back professional development seminars and special events
at the Los Angeles Convention Center. In light of the new ADA
state requirement that has just been signed into law (1 learning
unit in 2009 depending upon your license renewal date -- and
escalating each year thereafter), we want to provide you with ample
opportunity to fulfill this, as well as your other 17 AIA/LA-mandated
learning units, while surrounding the curriculum with a wealth of
networking events at the same time.
2009 Design Awards – Now, more than ever, it’s important to
showcase your firm’s design excellence by competing for a presti-
gious AIA/LA Design Award, arguably one of the most difficult in the
country to obtain. Don’t miss this program’s call for entry in the
spring.
2009 Design Awards Gala – Our annual party at which the
Architectural and Design community comes together to celebrate
the winners of the above-mentioned Design Awards program, meet
and network with their peers.
2009 Home Tours Series – this program offers a valuable opportu-
nity for architects and designers to showcase their residential work.
With an attendance of 300+ per tour, and coverage by the local
press, the Home Tour Series is an ideal way to present your work to a
large audience.
2009 Restaurant Design Awards (RDA) – The 2009 RDA ceremony
will be held at MOBIUS LA at Dwell on Design, thereby increasing the
audience in a big way. The program will be advertised generously in
Dwell magazine in the months leading up to the event -- exposing it,
for the first time -- to a national audience. This will be a great way for
architects and designers to highlight restaurant and bar + lounge
projects and the winners will be announced in the September issue
of the magazine.
2009 Legislature Day – Every October, in conjunction with
Architecture Month in Los Angeles, members of AIA/LA converge at
city hall for a round of daylong back-to-back meetings with
councilmembers and deputies to present initiatives that will
promote good architecture and urban planning.
2009 Leaders Making Los Angeles Breakfast Series – This popular
program offers members a chance to meet and interact with
distinguished guest-speakers such as David Abel (The Planning
Report), Christopher Hawthorne (LA Times), Jack Kyser (Chief
economist with LAEDC), Steve Hymon (LA Times), Joel Kotkin (Op-Ed
writer and author of The City: A Global History), and H. David Nahai
(CEO & General Manager, LADWP), who are all part of the 2009 series.
In addition to attending our events, we hope that you will consider
supporting AIA Los Angeles in a more significant way by acquiring
one of our carefully designed sponsorship packages for 2009, all of
which incorporate the above-mentioned programs and events. The
sponsorship overview is attached herewith in PDF format for your
review.
A BIT ABOUT THE HISTORY OF AIA
For over 150 years, the American Institute of Architects has existed as
the preeminent professional organization for architects in the
United States. The organization was founded in New York City in
1857 by a group of 13 architects to “promote the scientific and
practical perfection of its members” and “elevate the standing of the
profession”. Prior to the establishment of the American Institute of
Architects, which was originally called the New York Society of
Architects, anyone could claim to be an architect as there were no
schools of architecture or architectural licensing laws in the United
States.
Since then, the organization has come a long way. Its permanent
national home is now long established in Washington DC and its
300+ local chapters creates a formidable network across the country.
The Los Angeles Chapter (AIA/LA) currently counts over 3200 total
members. Of these, approximately 1800 members are licensed
architects with the remaining 1400+ members listed in other
categories. AIA/LA is the largest chapter in California and the fourth
largest chapter in the United States. We are dedicated to serving our
members through educational programs, a searchable online
database of member architects, publication of a bi-monthly
newsletter, job listings, media relations, mentoring and scholarship
programs, professional development, networking, architect referrals,
committee relations, government and legislative affairs, contract
documents, and much more.
Membership counts, perhaps now more than ever. The value of
AIA/LA sponsorship counts, perhaps now more than ever. We thank
you in advance for your consideration and hope that you will
continue to support the Chapter.
Please peruse our website for a full calendar of events and feel free
to contact the Chapter with any questions. We look forward to
hearing from you.
All best,
Your AIA Los Angeles Chapter Staff

Preamble
Members of The American Institute of Architects are dedicated to the highest stan-
dards of professionalism, integrity, and competence. This Code of Ethics and
Professional Conduct states guidelines for the conduct of Members in fulfilling those
obligations. The Code is arranged in three tiers of statements: Canons, Ethical
Standards, and Rules of Conduct:
• Canons are broad principles of conduct.
• Ethical Standards (E.S.) are more specific goals toward which
Members should aspire in professional performance and behavior.
• Rules of Conduct (Rule) are mandatory; violation of a Rule is
grounds for disciplinary action by the Institute. Rules of Conduct, in some
instances, implement more than one Canon or Ethical Standard.
The Code applies to the professional activities of all classes of Members, wherever they
occur. It addresses responsibilities to the public, which the profession serves and
enriches; to the clients and users of architecture and in the building industries, who
help to shape the built environment; and to the art and science of architecture, that
continuum of knowledge and creation which is the heritage and legacy of the profes-
sion.
Commentary is provided for some of the Rules of Conduct. That commentary is meant
to clarify or elaborate the intent of the rule. The commentary is not part of the Code.
Enforcement will be determined by application of the Rules of Conduct alone; the
commentary will assist those seeking to conform their conduct to the Code and those
charged with its enforcement.
Statement in Compliance With Antitrust Law
The following practices are not, in themselves, unethical, unprofessional, or contrary to
any policy of The American Institute of Architects or any of its components:
(1) submitting, at any time, competitive bids or price quotations, including in
circumstances where price is the sole or principal consideration in the
selection of an architect;
(2) providing discounts; or
(3) providing free services.
Individual architects or architecture firms, acting alone and not on behalf of the
Institute or any of its components, are free to decide for themselves whether or not to
engage in any of these practices. Antitrust law permits the Institute, its components, or
Members to advocate legislative or other government policies or actions relating to
these practices. Finally, architects should continue to consult with state laws or regula-
tions governing the practice of architecture.
CANON I
General Obligations
Members should maintain and advance their knowledge of the art and science of
architecture, respect the body of architectural accomplishment, contribute to its
growth, thoughtfully consider the social and environmental impact of their profession-
al activities, and exercise learned and uncompromised professional judgment.
E.S. 1.1 Knowledge and Skill:
Members should strive to improve their professional knowledge and skill.
Rule 1.101
In practicing architecture, Members shall demonstrate a consistent pattern of reason-
able care and competence, and shall apply the technical knowledge and skill which is
ordinarily applied by architects of good standing practicing in the same locality.
Commentary: By requiring a “consistent pattern” of adherence to the common law
standard of competence, this rule allows for discipline of a Member who more than
infrequently does not achieve that standard. Isolated instances of minor lapses would
not provide the basis for discipline.
E.S. 1.2 Standards of Excellence:
Members should continually seek to raise the standards of aesthetic excellence, archi-
tectural education, research, training, and practice.
E.S. 1.3 Natural and Cultural Heritage:
Members should respect and help conserve their natural and cultural heritage while
striving to improve the environment and the quality of life within it.
E.S. 1.4 Human Rights:
Members should uphold human rights in all their professional endeavors.
Rule 1.401
Members shall not discriminate in their professional activities on the basis of race, reli-
gion, gender, national origin, age, disability, or sexual orientation.
E.S. 1.5 Allied Arts & Industries:
Members should promote allied arts and contribute to the knowledge and capability
of the building industries as a whole.
CANON II
Obligations to the Public
Members should embrace the spirit and letter of the law governing their professional
affairs and should promote and serve the public interest in their personal and profes-
sional activities.
E.S. 2.1 Conduct:
Members should uphold the law in the conduct of their professional activities.
Rule 2.101
Members shall not, in the conduct of their professional practice, knowingly violate the
law.
Commentary: The violation of any law, local, state or federal, occurring in the conduct of a
Member’s professional practice, is made the basis for discipline by this rule. This includes the
federal Copyright Act, which prohibits copying architectural works without the permission
of the copyright owner: Allegations of violations of this rule must be based on an independ-
ent finding of a violation of the law by a court of competent jurisdiction or an administra-
tive or regulatory body.
Rule 2.102
Members shall neither offer nor make any payment or gift to a public official with the
intent of influencing the official’s judgment in connection with an existing or prospec-
tive project in which the Members are interested.
Commentary: This rule does not prohibit campaign contributions made in conformity with
applicable campaign financing laws.
Rule 2.103
Members serving in a public capacity shall not accept payments or gifts which are
intended to influence their judgment.
Rule 2.104
Members shall not engage in conduct involving fraud or wanton disregard of the
rights of others.
Commentary: This rule addresses serious misconduct whether or not related to a Member’s
professional practice. When an alleged violation of this rule is based on a violation of a law,
or of fraud, then its proof must be based on an independent finding of a violation of the
law or a finding of fraud by a court of competent jurisdiction or an administrative or regu-
latory body.
Rule 2.105
If, in the course of their work on a project, the Members become aware of a decision
taken by their employer or client which violates any law or regulation and which will,
in the Members’ judgment, materially affect adversely the safety to the public of the
finished project, the Members shall:
(a) advise their employer or client against the decision,
(b) refuse to consent to the decision, and
(c) report the decision to the local building inspector or other public official
charged with the enforcement of the applicable laws and regulations,
unless the Members are able to cause the matter to be satisfactorily
resolved by other means.
Commentary: This rule extends only to violations of the building laws that threaten the
public safety. The obligation under this rule applies only to the safety of the finished project,
an obligation coextensive with the usual undertaking of an architect.
Rule 2.106
Members shall not counsel or assist a client in conduct that the architect knows, or rea-
sonably should know, is fraudulent or illegal.
E.S. 2.2 Public Interest Services:
Members should render public interest professional services and encourage their
employees to render such services.
E.S. 2.3 Civic Responsibility:
Members should be involved in civic activities as citizens and professionals, and should
strive to improve public appreciation and understanding of architecture and the func-
tions and responsibilities of architects.
Rule 2.301
Members making public statements on architectural issues shall disclose when they
are being compensated for making such statements or when they have an economic
interest in the issue.

Preamble
Members of The American Institute of Architects are dedicated to the highest stan-
dards of professionalism, integrity, and competence. This Code of Ethics and
Professional Conduct states guidelines for the conduct of Members in fulfilling those
obligations. The Code is arranged in three tiers of statements: Canons, Ethical
Standards, and Rules of Conduct:
• Canons are broad principles of conduct.
• Ethical Standards (E.S.) are more specific goals toward which
Members should aspire in professional performance and behavior.
• Rules of Conduct (Rule) are mandatory; violation of a Rule is
grounds for disciplinary action by the Institute. Rules of Conduct, in some
instances, implement more than one Canon or Ethical Standard.
The Code applies to the professional activities of all classes of Members, wherever they
occur. It addresses responsibilities to the public, which the profession serves and
enriches; to the clients and users of architecture and in the building industries, who
help to shape the built environment; and to the art and science of architecture, that
continuum of knowledge and creation which is the heritage and legacy of the profes-
sion.
Commentary is provided for some of the Rules of Conduct. That commentary is meant
to clarify or elaborate the intent of the rule. The commentary is not part of the Code.
Enforcement will be determined by application of the Rules of Conduct alone; the
commentary will assist those seeking to conform their conduct to the Code and those
charged with its enforcement.
Statement in Compliance With Antitrust Law
The following practices are not, in themselves, unethical, unprofessional, or contrary to
any policy of The American Institute of Architects or any of its components:
(1) submitting, at any time, competitive bids or price quotations, including in
circumstances where price is the sole or principal consideration in the
selection of an architect;
(2) providing discounts; or
(3) providing free services.
Individual architects or architecture firms, acting alone and not on behalf of the
Institute or any of its components, are free to decide for themselves whether or not to
engage in any of these practices. Antitrust law permits the Institute, its components, or
Members to advocate legislative or other government policies or actions relating to
these practices. Finally, architects should continue to consult with state laws or regula-
tions governing the practice of architecture.
CANON I
General Obligations
Members should maintain and advance their knowledge of the art and science of
architecture, respect the body of architectural accomplishment, contribute to its
growth, thoughtfully consider the social and environmental impact of their profession-
al activities, and exercise learned and uncompromised professional judgment.
E.S. 1.1 Knowledge and Skill:
Members should strive to improve their professional knowledge and skill.
Rule 1.101
In practicing architecture, Members shall demonstrate a consistent pattern of reason-
able care and competence, and shall apply the technical knowledge and skill which is
ordinarily applied by architects of good standing practicing in the same locality.
Commentary: By requiring a “consistent pattern” of adherence to the common law
standard of competence, this rule allows for discipline of a Member who more than
infrequently does not achieve that standard. Isolated instances of minor lapses would
not provide the basis for discipline.
E.S. 1.2 Standards of Excellence:
Members should continually seek to raise the standards of aesthetic excellence, archi-
tectural education, research, training, and practice.
E.S. 1.3 Natural and Cultural Heritage:
Members should respect and help conserve their natural and cultural heritage while
striving to improve the environment and the quality of life within it.
E.S. 1.4 Human Rights:
Members should uphold human rights in all their professional endeavors.
Rule 1.401
Members shall not discriminate in their professional activities on the basis of race, reli-
gion, gender, national origin, age, disability, or sexual orientation.
E.S. 1.5 Allied Arts & Industries:
Members should promote allied arts and contribute to the knowledge and capability
of the building industries as a whole.
CANON II
Obligations to the Public
Members should embrace the spirit and letter of the law governing their professional
affairs and should promote and serve the public interest in their personal and profes-
sional activities.
E.S. 2.1 Conduct:
Members should uphold the law in the conduct of their professional activities.
Rule 2.101
Members shall not, in the conduct of their professional practice, knowingly violate the
law.
Commentary: The violation of any law, local, state or federal, occurring in the conduct of a
Member’s professional practice, is made the basis for discipline by this rule. This includes the
federal Copyright Act, which prohibits copying architectural works without the permission
of the copyright owner: Allegations of violations of this rule must be based on an independ-
ent finding of a violation of the law by a court of competent jurisdiction or an administra-
tive or regulatory body.
Rule 2.102
Members shall neither offer nor make any payment or gift to a public official with the
intent of influencing the official’s judgment in connection with an existing or prospec-
tive project in which the Members are interested.
Commentary: This rule does not prohibit campaign contributions made in conformity with
applicable campaign financing laws.
Rule 2.103
Members serving in a public capacity shall not accept payments or gifts which are
intended to influence their judgment.
Rule 2.104
Members shall not engage in conduct involving fraud or wanton disregard of the
rights of others.
Commentary: This rule addresses serious misconduct whether or not related to a Member’s
professional practice. When an alleged violation of this rule is based on a violation of a law,
or of fraud, then its proof must be based on an independent finding of a violation of the
law or a finding of fraud by a court of competent jurisdiction or an administrative or regu-
latory body.
Rule 2.105
If, in the course of their work on a project, the Members become aware of a decision
taken by their employer or client which violates any law or regulation and which will,
in the Members’ judgment, materially affect adversely the safety to the public of the
finished project, the Members shall:
(a) advise their employer or client against the decision,
(b) refuse to consent to the decision, and
(c) report the decision to the local building inspector or other public official
charged with the enforcement of the applicable laws and regulations,
unless the Members are able to cause the matter to be satisfactorily
resolved by other means.
Commentary: This rule extends only to violations of the building laws that threaten the
public safety. The obligation under this rule applies only to the safety of the finished project,
an obligation coextensive with the usual undertaking of an architect.
Rule 2.106
Members shall not counsel or assist a client in conduct that the architect knows, or rea-
sonably should know, is fraudulent or illegal.
E.S. 2.2 Public Interest Services:
Members should render public interest professional services and encourage their
employees to render such services.
E.S. 2.3 Civic Responsibility:
Members should be involved in civic activities as citizens and professionals, and should
strive to improve public appreciation and understanding of architecture and the func-
tions and responsibilities of architects.
Rule 2.301
Members making public statements on architectural issues shall disclose when they
are being compensated for making such statements or when they have an economic
interest in the issue.

CANON III
Obligations to the Client
Members should serve their clients competently and in a professional manner, and
should exercise unprejudiced and unbiased judgment when performing all profession-
al services.
E.S. 3.1 Competence:
Members should serve their clients in a timely and competent manner.
Rule 3.101
In performing professional services, Members shall take into account applicable laws
and regulations. Members may rely on the advice of other qualified persons as to the
intent and meaning of such regulations.
Rule 3.102
Members shall undertake to perform professional services only when they, together
with those whom they may engage as consultants, are qualified by education, training,
or experience in the specific technical areas involved.
Commentary: This rule is meant to ensure that Members not undertake projects that are
beyond their professional capacity. Members venturing into areas that require expertise
they do not possess may obtain that expertise by additional education, training, or through
the retention of consultants with the necessary expertise.
Rule 3.103
Members shall not materially alter the scope or objectives of a project without the
client’s consent.
E.S. 3.2 Conflict of Interest:
Members should avoid conflicts of interest in their professional practices and fully dis-
close all unavoidable conflicts as they arise.
Rule 3.201
A Member shall not render professional services if the Member’s professional judg-
ment could be affected by responsibilities to another project or person, or by the
Member’s own interests, unless all those who rely on the Member’s judgment consent
after full disclosure.
Commentary: This rule is intended to embrace the full range of situations that may present
a Member with a conflict between his interests or responsibilities and the interest of others.
Those who are entitled to disclosure may include a client, owner, employer, contractor, or
others who rely on or are affected by the Member’s professional decisions. A Member who
cannot appropriately communicate about a conflict directly with an affected person must
take steps to ensure that disclosure is made by other means.
Rule 3.202
When acting by agreement of the parties as the independent interpreter of building
contract documents and the judge of contract performance, Members shall render
decisions impartially.
Commentary: This rule applies when the Member, though paid by the owner and owing the
owner loyalty, is nonetheless required to act with impartiality in fulfilling the architect’s pro-
fessional responsibilities.
E.S. 3.3 Candor and Truthfulness:
Members should be candid and truthful in their professional communications and
keep their clients reasonably informed about the clients’ projects.
Rule 3.301
Members shall not intentionally or recklessly mislead existing or prospective clients
about the results that can be achieved through the use of the Members’ services, nor
shall the Members state that they can achieve results by means that violate applicable
law or this Code.
Commentary: This rule is meant to preclude dishonest, reckless, or illegal representations by
a Member either in the course of soliciting a client or during performance.
E.S. 3.4 Confidentiality:
Members should safeguard the trust placed in them by their clients.
Rule 3.401
Members shall not knowingly disclose information that would adversely affect their
client or that they have been asked to maintain in confidence, except as other wise
allowed or required by this Code or applicable law.
Commentary: To encourage the full and open exchange of information necessary for a suc-
cessful professional relation- ship, Members must recognize and respect the sensitive nature
of confidential client communications. Because the law does not recognize an architect-
client privilege, however, the rule permits a Member to reveal a confidence when a failure to
do so would be unlawful or contrary to another ethical duty imposed by this Code.
CANON IV
Obligations to the Profession
Members should uphold the integrity and dignity of the profession.
E.S. 4.1 Honesty and Fairness:
Members should pursue their professional activities with honesty and fairness.
Rule 4.101
Members having substantial information which leads to a reasonable belief that anoth-
er Member has committed a violation of this Code which raises a serious question as to
that Member’s honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness as a Member, shall file a complaint
with the National Ethics Council.
Commentary: Often, only an architect can recognize that the behavior of another architect
poses a serious question as to that other’s professional integrity. In those circumstances, the
duty to the professional’s calling requires that a complaint be filed. In most jurisdictions, a
complaint that invokes professional standards is protected from a libel or slander action if
the complaint was made in good faith. If in doubt, a Member should seek counsel before
reporting on another under this rule.
Rule 4.102
Members shall not sign or seal drawings, specifications, reports, or other professional
work for which they do not have responsible control.
Commentary: Responsible control means the degree of knowledge and supervision ordi-
narily required by the professional standard of care. With respect to the work of licensed
consultants, Members may sign or seal such work if they have reviewed it, coordinated its
preparation, or intend to be responsible for its adequacy.
Rule 4.103
Members speaking in their professional capacity shall not knowingly make false state-
ments of material fact.
Commentary: This rule applies to statements in all professional contexts, including applica-
tions for licensure and AIA membership.
E.S. 4.2 Dignity and Integrity:
Members should strive, through their actions, to promote the dignity and integrity of
the profession, and to ensure that their representatives and employees conform their
conduct to this Code.
Rule 4.201
Members shall not make misleading, deceptive, or false statements or claims about
their professional qualifications, experience, or performance and shall accurately state
the scope and nature of their responsibilities in connection with work for which they
are claiming credit.
Commentary: This rule is meant to prevent Members from claiming or implying credit for
work which they did not do, misleading others, and denying other participants in a project
their proper share of credit.
Rule 4.202
Members shall make reasonable efforts to ensure that those over whom they have
supervisory authority conform their conduct to this Code.
Commentary: What constitutes “reasonable efforts” under this rule is a common sense mat-
ter. As it makes sense to ensure that those over whom the architect exercises supervision be
made generally aware of the Code, it can also make sense to bring a particular provision to
the attention of a particular employee when a situation is present which might give rise to
violation.
CANON V
Obligations to Colleagues
Members should respect the rights and ac- knowledge the professional aspirations and
contributions of their colleagues. E.S. 5.1 Professional Environment: Members should
provide their associates and employees with a suitable working environment, compen-
sate them fairly, and facilitate their professional development.
E.S. 5.2 Intern and Professional Development:
Members should recognize and fulfill their obligation to nurture fellow professionals as
they progress through all stages of their career, beginning with professional education
in the academy, progressing through internship and continuing throughout their
career.
E.S. 5.3 Professional Recognition:
Members should build their professional reputation on the merits of their own service
and performance and should recognize and give credit to others for the professional
work they have performed.

Rule 5.301
Members shall recognize and respect the professional contributions of their employ-
ees, employers, professional colleagues, and business associates.
Rule 5.302
Members leaving a firm shall not, without the permission of their employer or partner,
take designs, drawings, data, reports, notes, or other materials relating to the firm’s
work, whether or not performed by the Member.
Rule 5.303
A Member shall not unreasonably withhold permission from a departing employee or
partner to take copies of designs, drawings, data, reports, notes, or other materials
relating to work performed by the employee or partner that are not confidential.
Commentary: A Member may impose reasonable conditions, such as the payment of copy-
ing costs, on the right of departing persons to take copies of their work.
RULES OF APPLICATION, ENFORCEMENT,
AND AMENDMENT
Application
The Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct applies to the professional activities of all
members of the AIA.
Enforcement
The Bylaws of the Institute state procedures for the enforcement of the Code of Ethics
and Professional Conduct. Such procedures provide that:
(1) Enforcement of the Code is administered through a National Ethics
Council, appointed by the AIA Board of Directors.
(2) Formal charges are filed directly with the National Ethics Council by
Members, components, or anyone directly aggrieved by the conduct of
the
Members.
(3) Penalties that may be imposed by the National Ethics Council are:
(a) Admonition
(b) Censure
(c) Suspension of membership for a period of time
(d) Termination of membership
(4) Appeal procedures are available.
(5) All proceedings are confidential, as is the imposition of an admonishment;
however, all other penalties shall be made public.
Enforcement of Rules 4.101 and 4.202 refer to and support enforcement of other Rules. A
violation of Rules 4.101 or 4.202 cannot be established without proof of a pertinent viola-
tion of at least one other Rule.
Amendment
The Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct may be amended by the convention of
the Institute under the same procedures as are necessary to amend the Institute’s
Bylaws. The Code may also be amended by the AIA Board of Directors upon a two-
thirds vote of the entire Board.
*2004 Edition. This copy of the Code of Ethics is current as of September 2004. Contact the

CONTINUING EDUCATION AT AIA
What is AIA/CES?
It is a continuing education system developed by the AIA to empha-
size learning and record participation in professional learning activ-
ities. AIA/CES enables architects to keep current, master new knowl-
edge and skills, plan for the future, and responsibly meet the role
society entrusts to a professional. The program also allows members
to fulfill a requirement for AIA membership and meet any state
mandatory continuing education requirement. In this role, the pro-
gram has the potential to be a primary force in the improvement
and revitalization of our profession.
What is my annual requirement?
All active AIA (Architect) members must successfully complete and
report 18 learning unit (LU) hours each year, with at least 8 of the 18
LU hours relating to health, safety, and/or welfare (HSW).
New in 2009: Sustainable Design Becomes a Mandatory
Continuing Education Requirement for AIA Membership
The AIA Board of Directors modified the AIA member continuing
education requirement to include 4 hours of education in
sustainable design as part of the existing 18-hour annual
requirement. This sustainable design requirement goes into effect in
calendar year 2009 and extends through 2012. The 4 hours of
sustainability coursework can also count towards the member's
8 required hours of HSW (Health Safety and Welfare), since
sustainability is an HSW subject.
About the Requirement
Sustainability has been a focus of architectural practice for over
thirty years, and the AIA has provided resources and tools to assist its
members in better serving their clients and communities through
environmentally responsible projects. The AIA Board of Directors
recognized the need to again help prepare their colleagues and
fellow practitioners respond to the latest challenge and opportunity
facing the profession. The issue of climate change and the impact of
buildings on carbon emissions created a new expectation among
clients and the public to look to the expertise of architects for
solutions that can help them leave a greener footprint. The AIA is
responding to this growing demand for our members to assume
greater leadership in addressing the challenges facing our planet.
Resources For AIA/CES Providers
This sustainable design mandatory continuing education
requirement is for AIA membership renewal. However, some states
may develop their own special continuing education requirements
in addition to HSW. For verification of a specific state’s mandatory
continuing education (MCE) requirement, please contact the state
licensing board directly. The following links may be found at

New in 2009: Mandatory Continuing Education on Disabled
Access Requirements for California Licensed Architects
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed legislation on September
29, 2008, requiring California architects to complete mandatory
continuing education courses on disabled access requirements as a
condition of license renewal.
The initial group of architects renewing in 2009 will need to report
one hour; eventually the requirement will be five hours per renewal
cycle.
This mandate will be required of licensees renewing their license
beginning in July 2009. The Board’s implementation plan for this
requirement will be determined in the near future and will be
influenced by the resources appropriated for this new program.
Information on the relevant portion of the bill can be found on
pages 3 - 4 of Senate Bill 1608, which is available at www.cab.ca.gov.
Because accessibility falls under HSW(Health Safety and Welfare),
the accessibility coursework can also be reported towards the
member's 8 required hours of HSW (Health Safety and Welfare.)
AIA Los Angeles and other providers will be developing programs to
help architects meet the new state licensing requirement. Visit
the California Architects Board website at www.cab.ca.gov,
AIA National's Continuing Education resource page at
www.aia.org/conted, and the Chapter web site at
www.aialosangeles.org for updated information and local pro-
grams to meet the new requirement.
A member who fails to meet the annual requirement will be given a
nine month grace period. Any credit earned in the following year will
apply toward the deficit. During the grace period, members are able
to report retroactively any activities that were completed in the pre-
vious year.
A member who exceeds the annual requirement may carry up to 18
LU hours (including eight hours of HSW) over to the next year.
Carryover credit can be used for one year only; it is not cumulative.
Only the number of credits needed to fulfill the annual requirement
for the following year may be carried over. Extra credit may not be
carried past the one-year limit.
NOTE: Most state licensing boards do not allow carryover and deficit
credit. States have strict continuing education timeframes, and cred-
its must be earned within them.
How does AIA/CES Work?
Members can earn LU hours by attending programs offered by
AIA/CES registered providers or through self-reporting independent
activities and research. Most programs offered by the AIA Los
Angeles are available at low or no cost.
What is a learning unit hour (LU hour)?
The AIA records continuing education credit in learning unit hours
(LU hours). A one-LU hour activity is equal to one contact hour. An LU
hour is not a continuing education unit (CEU). One tenth of a CEU (.1)
is equal to one contact hour, which is equal to one LU hour. In other
words, one CEU is equal to 10 contact hours or 10 LU hours.
The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) was created by IACET as a
measurement of continuing education. While others may use it, the
term CEU it belongs to IACET and the conversion given here refers to
IACET’s guidelines. All state licensing board credit is measured in the
contact hour regardless of what acronym used to describe it.
Whether it’s CEC, PDH, CE, or CEU, all state licensing boards consider
one contact hour equal to one hour of credit.
What is an AIA/CES Registered Provider Program?
The AIA has developed a network of more than 2500 educational
providers made up AIA Chapters, affiliate organizations, firms, manu-
facturers, universities, non-profit organization, and government
agencies. These educational providers offer more than 25,000 pro-
grams each year, which are listed at www.aia.org/conted.

Records in Oklahoma. Within 14 days of a program’s conclusion,
AIA/CES providers verify and report the program attendees to
AIA/CES Records. For non-AIA members the AIA/CES Provider will
provide a certificate of completion upon request. The complete
activities are then posted on AIA member’s transcripts.
What are Self Reported Activities?
If a program is not offered by an AIA/CES Registered provider, mem-
bers have the option of self reporting the program or activity. The
intent of this activity must educational in nature and new knowl-
edge in reference to their practice of architecture. Members must
indicate whether the activity they are reporting is self-designed or a
structured self-reported program:
Self-Designed Activity. This type of learning activity is organized by
the member specifically to meet his or her individual needs. A self-
designed activity frequently involves more than one type of medi-
um or method, such as research, reading, interviewing subject
experts, listening to audiotapes, and/or viewing videos. To determine
what qualifies for self-reporting, ask yourself the following ques-
tions: (1) Is this a planned learning activity? (2) Is this activity intend-
ed to be educational or operational? (3) Are you acquiring new
knowledge or are you sharing your knowledge with others? (4) How
will you apply this new knowledge to your practice? This method is
not acceptable for health, safety, and welfare (HSW) credit. Some
state licensing boards will not accept this type of reporting for
mandatory continuing education (MCE) requirements.
(Recommended minimum of three hours)
Structured Self-Reported Program. This is a structured activity
offered by an organized, third-party, non-CES provider.
Documentation of attendance/participation will usually be required
as a supplement when reporting this activity to meet a state licen-
sure requirement. For members who self-report a structured activity,
the AIA is not able to assist in acquiring any support documentation
that may be required by a state licensing board MCE audit.
To be eligible for credit, all self-reported activities must be planned
educational activities that provide you with new knowledge that
can be applied toward the practice of architecture. Members should
complete the AIA/CES Self-Report Form and submit it to AIA/CES
Records at the University of Oklahoma. Be sure to specify which type
of learning activity you are reporting so the data can be entered
accurately into your transcript. Title should be indicative of the pro-
gram content. Members calculate LU hours for self-reported activi-
ties by reporting the number of hours spent in architecture-related
learning. Think in terms of billable hours applied to learning.
How are transcript records kept and how may they be accessed?
Individual transcript records are updated daily on www.aia.org via
the World Wide Web. Anyone with an active AIA membership num-
ber can access a transcript online. To access your individual tran-
script, go to www.aia.org/conted. You may then print out a copy of
your CES transcript.
Official CES transcripts are available upon request. A hard copy of the
transcript can be faxed or mailed to a member. The first request is free
and for each consecutive request a fee of $10 per copy will be
assessed. You may make your request in writing, by phone, or by fax to:
The University of Oklahoma
Continuing Education, AIA/CES, Room B-1
1700 Asp Avenue, Norman, OK 73072
Information line: (800) 605-8229
Fax: (405) 325-6965
Are there any deadlines for reporting activities?
There is a September 30th deadline every year. This deadline applies
to any activity completed by within the previous calendar year. For
example, an activity completed in December of 2004 would need to
be submitted to AIA/CES Records no later than September 30th
2005. The deadline is not nine months from the date of completion;
it is nine months from the end of the calendar year. Any activities
submitted to AIA/CES Records after the September 30th cut off will
be returned. This course of action applies to AIA Members and
AIA/CES Registered Providers.
How does “health, safety, and welfare” (HSW) tie into CES?
The AIA requires members to earn 8 of the basic LU hour
requirements in the area of HSW. The percentage of HSW content in
any HSW-related activity must be a minimum of 75% to qualify a
program or educational event for HSW credit. This accomplishes
three goals:
• To ensure that HSW-related programs have a real
relevance to our members
• To eliminate any question of whether the content of a
program was actually HSW-related
• To protect AIA members with state mandatory
continuing education (MCE) requirements
What subject areas qualify for HSW credit?
The following is a compilation of HSW subject areas as defined by
the various state licensing boards with HSW requirements. (An indi-
vidual state may not accept all subject areas. Be sure to check your
state licensing board’s HSW definition and requirements.)
• Accessibility
• Acoustics
• Building design
• Code of ethics
• Construction administration
• Construction contract laws, legal aspects
• Construction documents, services
• Construction functions, materials, methods, and systems
• Energy efficiency
• Environmental: asbestos, lead-based paint, toxic
emissions
• Environmental analysis and issues of building materials
and systems
• Fire: building fire codes—flame spread, smoke
contribution, explosives
• Fire safety systems: detection and alarm standards
• Insurance to protect the owners of property and
injured parties
• Interior design
• Laws and regulations governing the practice of
architecture
• Life safety codes
• Materials and systems: roofing/waterproofing,
wall systems, etc.
• Material use, function, and features
• Mechanical, plumbing, electrical: system concepts,
materials, and methods
• Natural hazards (earthquake, hurricane, flood) related
to building design
• Preservation, renovation, restoration, and adaptive reuse
• Security of buildings, design
• Site and soils analysis
• Site design
• Specification writing
• Structural issues
• Surveying methods, techniques
• Sustainable design
Am I supposed to add my LU and HSW hours together to meet
the requirements?
No. The HSW column on your transcript simply shows how many of
your total LU hours are HSW-related. The annual requirement is 18
LU hours, of which eight must be HSW-related. Thus, if you earn eight
hours of credit from an HSW-related activity, you will need only 10
more hours (of either HSW-related or non–HSW-related activity) to
meet your requirement. Eight hours is the minimum requirement for
HSW credit, but that number may be exceeded.
Can I self-report HSW hours?
Yes—but with restrictions. You may self-report any structured activi-
ty that is HSW related and receive HSW credit for it. In other words,
the activity must be developed and presented to you by a third

party organization. You cannot receive HSW credit for any self-
designed activity. For example, even though code research is HSW in
nature, if it is a self-designed activity, the AIA does not allow HSW
credit for it. This policy was adopted to ensure quality control guide-
lines are enforced and to comply with state licensing board require-
ments.
As a Fellow (FAIA) of the Institute, am I required to earn LU
hours?
FAIA members are required to complete the 18 LU hours (8 HSW) of
continuing education each year. If you are interested in applying for
FAIA status, remember that you must have been an active AIA
member in good standing for 10 consecutive years prior to your
nomination. This includes meeting the annual CES requirements.
Those who nominate someone for fellowship must also be in good
CES standing.
As a new AIA member, am I required to earn LU hours?
New, first-time members of the AIA are not required to complete the
annual 18 LU hours (8 HSW) during the calendar year that they join.
Their requirement will begin January 1 of the following year.
However, records are kept for those who submit their activities. Any
credit received in the first year will not apply toward the following
year’s requirement unless you exceed the 18 LU hour (8 HSW)
requirements.
Are Associate, Allied, IDP, and Emeritus members required to
earn LU hours?
Associate, allied, and emeritus members are exempt from the CES
membership requirement but are encouraged to participate for
their own personal benefit and that of the profession. Records are
kept for all members who report their activities. IDP interns and non-
members may now use the AIA record-keeping services.
What about IDP credit for supplemental education?
Supplementary education is a way for interns to earn IDP training
units outside of normal work in a firm or other recognized training
setting. You can earn IDP training units by attending or completing
AIA-approved continuing education programs and resources, such
as the AIA convention, education programs conducted by your local
AIA or CSI component, or education available through the Internet.
As of January 1, 2000, IDP credit is given at .15 units per hour for all
continuing education programs. An official AIA transcript must
accompany IDP training reports documenting completion of the
programs. Interns who are not members of the AIA may access a free
IDP number through the Emerging Professional's Companion found
here: http://www.aia.org/idp_default. Other resources are available
through the Emerging Professionals section of aia.org.
Supplementary education cannot be used to satisfy the minimum
training requirements in IDP training areas 1 through 16, and total
credit from supplementary education activities cannot exceed 235
training units.
For more information, call NCARB at (202) 879-0502 or visit
www.ncarb.org.
How do I receive credit for becoming LEED Accredited?
If you studied on your own and took the exam you may self-report
that time online as a self-designed activity (research). Since it was
not structured and presented to you by a third party, it will not be eli-
gible for HSW credit. If you took a class from an organization that was
not an AIA/CES Registered Provider then you may self-report the
class as a structured activity program. This type of activity will be eli-
gible for HSW credit. If the program was presented by an AIA/CES
Registered Provider then the program provider is responsible for the
submission of your activities to AIA/CES Records.
Can I receive credit for my volunteer work?
Volunteer work is a wonderful way to give back to the community.
However, the intent of the continuing education program is to fur-
ther the development of the architect. Consider whether or not the
activity is new knowledge gained in reference to your practice. Ask
yourself whether the event is planned to help you in your practice or
to share the knowledge that you have with others? If you feel that
this experience was a valid educational experience that can be
applied to your practice of architecture, then you may self-report.
You will be required to clearly state your learning experience and
how it will specifically help you improve your practice.
What is the AIA/CES Non-compliance Policy?
Members are considered in non-compliance with the AIA/CES require-
ment if they have not completed and reported their annual 18 LU
hours (8 HSW) by December 31st of every year. Members in non-com-
pliance have an opportunity to report missing continuing education
credits for nine months into the next calendar year. During this period,
members are considered “at risk” of membership termination for non-
compliance with CES. At risk notifications will begin in February of
each year. Members are contacted via mail, email, telephone and fax. If
CES transcript records still indicate these members have not complet-
ed the annual CES requirements after September 30, they are then
considered lapsed for non-compliance and cannot renew their mem-
bership for the following year until the audit is resolved.
What qualifies for an exemption from the CES requirement?
Exemptions may be granted for three reasons:
• Severe medical difficulties for at least the last 3 months
of the probation year (this includes members of your
immediate family)
• An unexpected/nonpermanent overseas assignment for
more than 6 months or the last three months of the
membership year
• Severe financial hardship
Other unusual circumstances may be considered but must be
reviewed by AIA/CES. Documentation is required. Please contact the
AIA as soon as possible if one of the above situations applies to you.
How do I reinstate my membership if I lapse due to CES
non-compliance?
The AIA/CES Reinstatement Policy allows members who have been
lapsed for non-compliance to reinstate at any time. Those applying
to be reinstated must report 9 previously unreported LU hours in
addition to their annual 18 LU hour (8 HSW) requirement. The 9 LU
hours above the usual yearly number must have been completed
within one year of the date of applying for reinstatement.
What is mandatory continuing education (MCE)?
Mandatory Continuing Education (MCE) is education required by a
state to retain licensure. Approximately 30 states and ten Canadian
Provinces have implemented a MCE license requirement, but these
requirements vary from state to state, province to province.
Alabama, for example, requires 12 hours per year, while Florida
requires 20 hours every two years, and New York requires 12 hours
every 3 years. Except for Kansas, the states with MCE also require that
between 8-12 of the hours be in the area described as health, safety,
and welfare (HSW).
Each state has the legal right to establish its own guidelines and
requirements. However, most states’ requirements are similar,
whether they require architects to meet them annually or biannual-
ly. If you, like the average AIA member, have four or more state licens-
es, you must meet the continuing education requirements for all the
states in which you intend to practice.
To date, most states that require MCE indicate they will accept
AIA/CES transcripts as documentation for completion of valid con-
tinuing education credit. For AIA members, this means that our sin-
gle record-keeping system is the documentation needed for report-
ing your state MCE requirements when requested. We do, however,
strongly suggest that you keep backup documentation of your
activities as support, especially if the credit is a self-reported activity
as it may be requested.
What is the relation between HSW and state mandatory contin-
uing education requirements (MCE)?
Both the AIA and state licensing boards base their programs on the
contact hour. A majority of states require 8 contact hours of HSW for

their MCE. The AIA/CES program requires eight contact hours of HSW
from a structured provider. Some states allow some forms of self-
reporting. Due to the quality assurance issues posed by the states,
the AIA does not accept self-designed activities for HSW credit.
CAUTION: For members who self-report structured activities for HSW
credit, it has become very important that you clearly report all HSW
programs and activities separately, ensuring that they are clearly
identified. Failure to do so could result in the loss of your license
because of noncompliance with state MCE requirements.
How is quality control addressed and maintained?
Quality control begins when CES providers and AIA members file
their records with our CES Records Office at the University of
Oklahoma. If the forms submitted are incomplete or inaccurate, they
are returned to the submitter with instructions for correcting the
error.
Program quality is monitored through audit/review reports filed by
members, subject matter experts, and providers. The AIA works in
close cooperation with the state licensing boards and will audit any
program requested by a licensing board. The primary object of an
audit/review is to determine how well program content meets learn-
ing objectives.
AIA/CES transcripts constitute a five-year history file of each mem-
ber’s continuing education credits. We recommend that you keep
program materials and documentation for five years as well. You will
find these materials useful if your CES records are audited by the AIA
or a state licensing board.
I live and work outside the United States. Am I required to
complete CES credits?
Yes! The same requirements are in effect. We realize that many
traditional educational opportunities may be limited for you; howev-
er, many unique “new knowledge” opportunities are available
overseas, such as learning about the host country’s historic architec-
ture. As in many rural areas in the United States, self-reporting activ-
ities are a practical means of acquiring credits. AIA eClassroom
Internet courses and other distance education products and pro-
grams designed for architects are available to anyone with Internet
access. Architectural Record features special articles each month
that offer 1 LU hour; most of these articles are HSW related (limit
eight per year). As well, learning about a country’s building codes,
language, and customs will help you develop your profession in the
country where you are practicing, therefore you may self-report this
new knowledge.
The AIA has chapters in London, continental Europe, and Hong Kong,
and additional AIA/CES education providers are located in Canada,
Italy, Malaysia, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, and Spain. AIA
members can also attend and report any overseas professional asso-
ciation education activities.
What is AIA eClassroom?
AIA eClassroom is a web-based continuing education program
developed by the American Institute of Architects. Design, practice,
the environment, marketing and technology courses are offered
online at http://eclassroom.aia.org. Course offerings are available 24
hours a day, 7 days a week and include popular sessions from past
AIA conventions and conferences.
What courses are available through AIA eClassroom?
AIA eClassroom presents a wide variety of courses on design, prac-
tice, marketing, the environment, technology, and management by
some of the leading professionals in the field. The list of courses is
available at http://eclassroom.aia.org/courselist.cfm.
What is an AIA eClassroom online course?
eClassroom course content is generated by digitally taping lectures
and synchronizing them with graphics. The multimedia lectures are
supplemented with links to additional resources, and handouts.
After completing the course, users answer 10-15 questions related to
the program content. Assuming the questions are answered correct-
ly, AIA members and nonmembers may print a certificate from the
quiz page upon course completion. Learning units are reported for
AIA members to the University of Oklahoma record-keeping body in
batches, once a week.
Can I review an eClassroom course demonstration prior making
a purchase?
Yes. To help you decide whether eClassroom is right for you,
a free demonstration seminar is offered at
http://eclassroom.aia.org/demo/home.cfm.
How do I purchase an eClassroom course?
First, you need to select a course. In the Course Descriptions list you
will find information on all of the courses offered. Once you've
chosen and purchased a course, you will receive an enrollment ID
number via email. This secure number allows you to access only that
specific course.
What is the cost of eClassroom?
The grid below shows the cost for eClassroom courses based upon
the quantity of learning units. In addition, please check eClassroom
monthly specials http://eclassroom.aia.org/specials.cfm for current
information about discounted course offerings.
1 LU - $49.95 (AIA); $74.95 (non-AIA)
1.5 LUs - $74.95 (AIA); $112.95 (non-AIA)
2 LUs - $99.95 (AIA); $149.95 (non-AIA)
How do I contact AIA eClassroom?
eClassroom support hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 AM to 5 PM, EST.
Please email us at eclassroom@aia.org or call Information Central at
1-800-242-3837.
How can I obtain credit for teaching?
Members who present a program or class, or serve on a panel, or give
a speech one hour or longer can self-report the topics as a struc-
tured activity program. If the topic relates to HSW, members can
claim the program as HSW. AIA members can self-report the research
and preparation time for presentations, speeches, classes that they
teach. The research must be self-reported as self-designed and,
regardless of the topic, will not qualify for HSW credit. The AIA allows
a maximum of 10 LU hours of research time for each hour of actual
class presentation time. Members may select just one option, either
teaching credit or research, but cannot claim both for the same
event.
University/College faculty:
Full-time (FT) university faculty can not apply for credit if the course
in question is part of their regular curriculum workload. They can
however, apply for credit if the course or program is “outside”of their
normal work assignments. Part-time (PT) faculty can apply for teach
credit for any course taught once every 3 years.
For each semester hour of credit assigned to the course the AIA will
allow 15 LU hours. (1 semester hour = 15 LU hours; 3 semester hours
= 45 LU hours, etc…)
For each quarter hour of credit assigned to the course the AIA will
allow 10 LU hours. (1 semester hour = 10 LU hours; 3 semester hours
= 30 LU hours, etc…)
How do I receive credit for the articles in Architectural Record
magazine?
All acceptable articles (the expiration date can be found on the exam
answer page) are to be returned with exam and $10 to Architectural
Record at the address listed in the magazine. If you successful pass
the test then the score is forwarded to AIA/CES Records at The
University of Oklahoma by Architectural Record as long as you pro-
vided them with your membership number. Please allow 30 days
from the time you send your test to Architectural Record and the
time it appears on your transcript.

Important: AIA Members are limited to a maximum of 8 magazine
articles per year (January to December). AIA/CES Records will post
the surplus articles to your record if you submit them, but they will
not be added to your totals for the year. If you report more than 8
articles per year the excess credit cannot carry over to the following
year. You may only carry credit to the following year once the annu-
al requirement has been exceeded. Since you may only receive a
maximum of 8 hours from magazine articles, the surplus articles
cannot carry forward.
What type of distance education programs can count for CES
credits?
Distance education is defined as a method of instruction in which
there is a separation of place and/or time between the instructor and
learner, between fellow learners, and/or between learners and the
learning resources. These programs may use one or more delivery
methods. Examples of distance education program delivery (alone
or in combination):
• AIA eClassroom on the Internet
• Audiotape/audio conferencing
• Cable TV
• CD-ROM/software
• Computer-based training
• Correspondence (written) courses
• E-mail
• Fax transmissions
• Internet
• Publications/articles
• Structured self-study
• Satellite broadcasting
• Teleconference/audio conference
• Videotapes
• Webcasts
• NCARB monographs
CES SURVIVAL TIPS
Always check your transcript.
This is the only way to make sure your records are up-to-date. Don’t
assume that because you went to a program or sent in a self-report-
ing form that the record will be on your transcript. Sometimes a pro-
gram provider may transpose a number, or a fax may not transmit
properly. In the case of online transmissions, the occasional comput-
er glitch or system crash may cause information to be lost. The only
way to ensure you get all the credit you’ve earned is to check your
transcript after an activity. It only takes a few minutes to do this, and
it’s the best way to make sure you receive all the credit you’ve
earned!
Keep your documentation.
Always keep documentation of programs you’ve attended and forms
you’ve submitted. (Don’t forget your online forms. Print them out.)
This habit will save you a lot of work if information is missing from
your transcript. In addition to your AIA/CES requirement, many of
you have state licensing requirements. Keeping your documentation
ensures you will be prepared if additional information is requested
from your state licensing board. We recommend you keep your doc-
umentation for a minimum of three years. For some state licensing
boards, you need to keep documentation for six years.
Send your forms to AIA/CES Records.
To receive your LU hours as quickly and accurately as possible, please
send your continuing education documentation (AIA/CES Self-
Report Form) to the AIA/CES Records office at the University of
Oklahoma in Norman, Oklahoma, (800) 605-8229. The address and
phone and fax numbers are on the bottom of the form.
Make sure you have current self-report forms.
Do not use outdated forms. Self-report forms dating from before
2000 are obsolete. These forms do not have the proper format or
address for the current system. The program has changed signifi-
cantly in the last few years, and these old forms do not include cer-
tain information significant to the AIA/CES requirement. By using an
outdated form, you cheat yourself of the credit you need to meet
your requirement. Self reporting is available online at
www.aia.org/conted.
Contact the program provider if your record is inaccurate.
If you have attended a program by an AIA/CES provider and the
program has not shown up on your transcript after an extended
period of time (one month after the program), contact the program
provider. Program information is sent from the provider directly to
AIA/CES Records. If the provider has sent the information in, contact
AIA/CES Records. The national AIA component can assist you if you
are having problems with an AIA/CES provider but cannot report a
program that a provider has not filed.

GUIDE TO PRIVATE OWNERS
This guide is for owners in the private sector for the develop-
ment of commercial or institutional projects. For governments
and other public entities, a special document is available at the
AIA/LA Chapter office.
Getting Started
Every owner starts from a different place. Some have had vast expe-
rience with design and construction; they know what they want and
how to go about getting it. Many have less or not at all.
Whatever your situation, it makes sense to begin with an assessment
of what you already know about your project and what you will
establish with your architect’s help. The questions outlined here can
be used as a guide.
You don’t need firm or complete answers to these questions at this
point. Indeed, an architect may help you think them through. A gen-
eral understanding of where you are, however, will help you select
the best architect for the project.
• What activities do you expect to house in the project?
Are you ready to translate these activities into specific
spaces and square-footage areas, or will the “program”
emerge in working with the architect?
• Has a site been established, or is this decision, too, a subject
of investigation with the architect?
• Have you, or perhaps others, fixed a construction schedule
or budget?
• What are your design aspirations? What thought have you
given to the design quality or amenity you are seeking in
this project?
• What are your overall expectations for this project? What
are your basic motivations as a client, and what role does
this project play in achieving your overall aims?
• How do you make decisions? Can one person sign off on
recommendations? Are committees necessary?
• How much information do you need to make decisions? Do
you require a lot of details?
• How bold do you expect to be? Do you wish to push design
or technology to the limit? Is the project experimental?
• Do you have the resources to do this project? Where will
they come from, and what strings may be attached?
• How much experience do you have in design and building?
Have you done this before? If so, where have you been
successful, and where were you not?
Architectural Firms
Architecture firms come in a variety of sizes and types. The statistical-
ly average firm is made up of nine or ten people; many firms are
smaller (with as few as one or two architects), and there are some
very large firms with staffs of 100 or more. Some specialize in one or
more project or facility types; others do not. Some include in-house
engineering (civil, structural, mechanical or electrical) or other
design disciplines (planning, urban design, landscape architecture or
interior design); many architects introduce these disciplines into
their projects through appropriate consultants. Each architecture
firm brings a different combination of skills, expertise, interests and
values to its projects.
First-time clients, and even experienced clients facing new situa-
tions, have many questions about architect selection. Some of the
more commonly asked ones are addressed here:
When, in the life cycle of a project, should I bring the architect
into the picture?
As early as possible. Architects can help you define the project in
terms that provide meaningful guidance for design. They can also do
site studies, help secure planning and zoning approvals and perform
a variety of other predesign tasks.
Should I look at more than one firm?
Usually, yes. The exception, of course, arises when you already have a
good relationship with an architect and it makes little sense to
change.
How do I find potentially suitable firms to contact?
Contact other owners who have developed similar facilities, and ask
whom they interviewed and ultimately selected. Ask who designed
buildings and projects that you’ve admired or that seem especially
appropriate. Many local chapters of the American Institute of
Architects have lists of firms.
What information should I ask for?
At minimum, ask prospective firms to show you projects that are
similar to yours (that is, of similar size and type) or that have
addressed similar issues (that is, similar siting, similar functional com-
plexity, similar design aspirations). Ask them to indicate how they
will approach your project and who will be working on it (including
consultants). Ask for the names of other owners you can contact.
Why are formal interviews desirable?
An interview addresses one issue that can’t be covered in brochures
and printed materials; the “chemistry” between the owner and the
project team. It also allows the owner to investigate how each archi-
tect will approach the project.
How many firms should I interview, and how should they be
selected?
Most people advise that you interview between three and five firms,
enough to see the range of possibilities but not so many that an
already tough decision will be further complicated. Select for inter-
view architecture firms you feel can do your project because of their
expertise, their experience or their ability to bring a fresh look to
your situation. Treat each firm fairly, offering, for example, equal time
and equal access to your site and existing facilities. Insist on meeting
the key people who will work on your project.
What can I realistically expect to learn from an interview?
How can I structure the interview to make it as informative as
possible?
You can learn how the team the architect has put together will
approach your project. Ask how the architect will gather informa-
tion, establish priorities and make decisions. Ask what the architect
sees as the important issues or considerations in the project.
Evaluate the firm’s interest in your project: Will your needs be a major
or minor concern? Evaluate the firm’s style, personality and
approach: Are they compatible with yours?
How should I follow up?
Tell each firm what you intend to do next and when you plan to
make your decisions. If you haven’t talked with past clients, do so
now. Assess both the performance of the firm and the performance
of the resulting architecture. You may want to visit existing buildings
to see them in use. Notify the selected firm as soon as possible.
Remember, conditions change; the firm may not be able to offer the
same project team if you must take several weeks or months to
decide.

GUIDE TO PRIVATE OWNERS
On what should I base my decision?
Personal confidence in the architect is preeminent. Then seek an
appropriate balance among these factors: technical competence, pro-
fessional service, cost and, of course, design ability. Once you’ve select-
ed the best firm, enter into detailed negotiations of services and com-
pensation. If you cannot agree, begin negotiating with your second
choice.
Should select a builder or contractor before selecting an
architect?
It works best to select an architect first; then you will have help in
understanding how to make the builder or contractor an effective
member of the building team. Of course, there are always exceptions,
such as when you already have a good relationship with a contractor
whom you would like to work with again.
However architect selection is approached, it is worth taking the time
to do it well. Some additional guidance:
• You will be engaging the services of a professional, whom
you will be working closely with through the life of the
project, and your relationship may extend to future
projects. Invest at least the care it takes to select a financial
or legal adviser.
• Yours will also be a business relationship. Find out how
prospective architects do business, how they work with
their clients, how responsive they are to your management
and decision styles, and how well their work stacks up
against their clients’ expectations. The best way to find out
is to talk with other owners for whom the firm has provided
professional services.
• Ask questions. Respect the architect as a professional who
will bring experience and specialized knowledge to your
project. At the same time, don’t be afraid to ask the same
questions you’ve asked yourself; What does the architect
expect from the project? How much information does the
architect need? How does the architect set priorities and
make decisions? Who in the firm will work directly with the
client? How will engineering or other design services be
provided? How does the firm provide quality control during
design? What is the firm’s construction-cost experience?
• Be frank. Tell the architect what you know and what you
expect. Ask for an explanation of anything you don’t
understand. The more on the table at the beginning, the
better the chances for a successful project.
Selection Is a Mutual Process
The most thoughtful architects are as careful in selecting their clients
as owners are in selecting architects. They are as interested in a suc-
cessful project as you are, and they know that good architecture
results from fruitful collaboration between good architects and good
clients.
Design “On Spec”as a Condition of Selection
What problems do you create when you ask an architect to show you
the design first as a condition of selection? Even “simple” projects are
very complex. Each situation is different — different people, different
needs, a different site, different financing and regulatory requirements.
Many of the owner’s requirements and expectations become specific
only in design; as the project proceeds, needs and priorities are clari-
fied and new possibilities emerge. The architect’s knowledge, experi-
ence and skill become part of the project, and contribute still more
possibilities. These facts suggest that back-of-the-envelope design
done as part of the architect-selection process cannot substitute for
complex, time-consuming and intensive dialogue and inquiry that
characterize architectural design.
In some cases, owners know just what they need. If you feel you are
one of those owners, seriously consider engaging an architect on, for
example, an hourly consulting basis to review and test your decision.
Detailed professional evaluationsof existing buildings can be valuable
in uncovering problems and possibilities that may affect your decision.
An “off-the-shelf” product may not fulfill your specific requirements.
The process of adapting an existing building design to a new site may
be more complicated than it appears, considering, for example, soil or
drainage conditions, solar orientation, views, traffic and community
issues.
Identifying the Type of Services You Need
You may already know the scope of professional services required for
your project, but most owners want to work with their architects to
find out what is needed. Different projects require different combina-
tions of architectural services. An early task is to identify those services
essential to the success of the project.
Most projects require a set of basic services typically provided by archi-
tects: preliminary (usually called schematic) design, design develop-
ment, preparation of construction contract documents (drawings,
specifications, invitations for contractor proposals, construction con-
tract agreements); assistance in the bidding or negotiation process,
and administration of the agreements between you and your builder
or contractor.
Some projects, however, require other services. Predesign work may be
essential: for example, facilities programming, surveys of existing facil-
ities, marketing and economic feasibility studies, budgeting and
financing packages, site utilization and utilities studies, environmental
analyses, planning and zoning applications, and preparation of mate-
rials for public referenda. Projects may also require special cost or ener-
gy analyses; tenant-related design; or special drawings, models and
presentations.
Not all services need be provided by the architect. Some owners have
considerable project planning, design and construction expertise and
may be fully capable of undertaking some project tasks themselves.
Other owners find it important or necessary to add other consultants
to the project team to undertake specific tasks; here, discussion will be
necessary to establish who will coordinate owner-supplied work or
other services provided outside the architect’s agreement.
There are two effective approaches to establishing services:
• The first is to establish the basic services, a standard set of
services common to many projects. Then a second tier of
additional services is used to cover a wide variety of other
special studies or services that some projects require, like
some of those mentioned above.
• The second is to use the designated services approach,
where owners and architects select the appropriate
services from an array developed by the AIA and presented
here.
The AIA publishes standard owner-architect agreement forms for both
of these approaches. AIA Document B141, Owner-Architect
Agreement, and its short-form version B151, Abbreviated Form of
Owner-Architect Agreement for Construction Projects of Limited
Scope, embody the basic services approach. AIA Document B163,
Owner-Architect for Designated Services, can be used to implement
the designated services approach.
Deciding on Services
The best strategy is to sit down with your architect and to identify the
services needed. Here are some advices:

GUIDE TO PRIVATE OWNERS
• Use the AIA’s list of designated services at the end of this
Guide as an initial discussion guide; doing so provides a
chance to talk about all possible services.
• Recognize that additional services may be required once
you are under way. You may require zoning approvals or
you may wish to do economic analyses of an intriguing new
energy-savings system.
• Set aside a design contingency budget under the joint
control of owner and architect to fund design changes or
omissions once construction begins.
• Don’t skimp on construction contract administration
services, that is, observing the construction work for
conformance to drawings and specifications; processing
the contractor’s shop drawings, materials and product
samples; reviewing the results of construction tests and
inspections; evaluating contractor request for payment;
handling requests for design changes during construction,
and administering the completion, start-up and close-out
process for the owner.
• Most disputes that arise do so during construction.
Consider how you will handle such disputes. The AIA
standard agreement forms include an arbitration
procedure in which both parties submit their claims to
binding arbitration under careful rules. You may also want
to consider a mediation process (in which the parties
resolve the dispute with the help of a neutral mediator) as
a first step to forestall the time and expense of arbitration.
• Include a postconstruction evaluation of the building in the
agreement; perhaps a joint inspection by owner and
architect six months after the building is occupied to see if
it is being used and maintained appropriately.
• Finally, allow the project to guide the choice of agreement
form. The designated services approach is more
complicated, for it forces an up-front decision to include, or
not to include, every possible service. Designating services,
however, brings discipline and clarity to the process of
deciding who will do what. It identifies all the services
needed to do the project, and it allows the architect to
develop a compensation proposal that is appropriate to
the responsibilities being assumed.
How to Deal with Unknowns?
Sometimes too little is known about the project to intelligently pin
down all the required professional services and to proceed to a con-
tractual agreement with the architect. If this is the case, engage the
architect to provide project definition and other predesign services
first, with remaining phases and services to be determined later.
Negotiating An Agreement
The formal agreement between owner and architect is an opportuni-
ty to assure that both see the same project before them and that both
agree on requirements and expectations. Before committing these
requirements and expectations to paper, take a look at the five steps
presented here and address any that may have been missed.
1. Establish Project Requirements
Write down your project requirements as either a short statement or a
very detailed compilation. Address these points:
• Project scope: What is to be designed and built?
• Project site: Where will (might) it be built?
• Levels of design quality and amenity
• Role of the project (in the owner’s life, business,
community, etc.)
• Schedule requirements or constraints
• Target date for completion
• Budget estimate and sources of financing
• Codes, regulations, required design reviews
2. Describe Each Task and Assign Responsibility
Owner and architect should identify the predesign, design, construc-
tion and postconstruction tasks that must be undertaken to achieve
the project’s goals. The chart on pages 12 and 13 provides a starting
point. Both should then identify who will carry out each task.
Advice: To help produce a complete schedule, include all necessary
tasks, even if they will be done by others (say, a regulatory agency’s
review)
3. Develop a First-Cut Schedule
Place the tasks and responsibilities on a time line, estimate duration for
each task. Identify the tasks that, if delayed for any reason, will delay
the completion of the project. Compare the time line with the target
completion date and adjust one or both as appropriate.
Advice: Owner, architect and other key actors who must live with the
project schedule should be involved in developing it.
4. Take a Critical Look at the Results
Is the schedule reasonable, particularly given the project’s require-
ments and budget? Have you allowed each actor enough time to do
the work? Have you allowed yourself enough time to review the archi-
tect’s submissions, to seek your own recommendations and approvals,
and to make your decisions? Many project schedules don’t provide
enough time for decision making.
5. Ask the Architect for a Proposal
Ask the architect to provide you with a compensation proposal that is
based on the tasks and schedule outlined above.
The Owner-Architect Agreement
If you’ve done your homework, the written agreement should follow
without difficulty. Although a certain amount of negotiation is
inevitable, you and the architect should be of common mind on the
key issues of project scope, services, responsibilities, schedule, con-
struction budget and the architect’s compensation. Some advice on
the subject:
• Use a written contract. No handshake is firm enough to
reach all the understandings about the different roles and
obligations the owner and architect will carry out.
• Feel free to use AIA documents. These standard forms of
agreement, first developed by the American Institute of
Architects in the 1880s, have been carefully reviewed and
modified over the years. They are widely used and they
present a current consensus among organizations
representing owners, lawyers, contractors, engineers and
architects. They are “coordinated” to fit together; for
example, the Architect-Consultant Agreement serves as a
subcontract for the Owner-Architect Agreement; and the
Owner-Contractor Agreement, usually negotiated later,
extends the architect’s services into the construction
phase.
• If you want to modify the AIA forms, do so with great care.
Since these forms are coordinated, even simple revisions in
one may cause complications in another.
• Do not expect your architect to warrant or guarantee
results. Perfection is a shared but unrealistic ideal; it can no
more be attained in design and building than it can in any
` other complex human pursuit.
• Consult your legal counsel before signing these
agreements.

GUIDE TO PRIVATE OWNERS
Compensating Your Architect
Adequate compensation for the architect assures the type and level of
service needed to fulfill your expectations. You may have questions
about how to arrive at the appropriate compensation for your project;
some of the more frequent questions are answered here:
How much should I expect to pay an architect?
That will relate to the types and levels of professional services provid-
ed. The more service you need and the more complex or experimental
the project, the more you should budget for architectural services.
What methods of compensation are available?
These are the most common:
• A stipulated sum based on the architect’s compensation
proposal
• A stipulated sum per unit, based on what is to be built (for
example,
the number of square feet, apartments, rooms)
• A percentage of the construction cost
• Hourly rates
• Combination of the above
My project is one of repetitive units (beds, rooms, apartments).
Does it make sense to use these units as a basis for
compensation?
Sometimes, for example, when the approximate number of units (or
alternatively, the highest and lowest probable numbers) is known.
When is it appropriate to use percentage of construction cost as a
method of compensation?
It depends. It is simple in concept. It requires, however, a rigorous
determination of what “construction cost” includes and does not
include. The result may be too high or too low given the complexity of
the project and the professional services needed to accomplish it.
Finally, this method may penalize the architect for investing extra
effort to reduce construction cost on behalf of the owner.
What does a stipulated sum include?
This is a matter of negotiation with your architect, but generally it
includes the architect’s direct personnel expenses (salary and fringe
benefits), other direct expenses chargeable to the project (such as
consultant services), indirect expense or overhead (costs of doing
business not directly chargeable to specific projects) and profit.
When does it make sense to consider the hourly rate method?
Again, this is a matter of negotiation, but it makes special sense when
there are many unknowns. Indeed, many projects begin this way, con-
tinuing until the scope of services is determined and it is possible to
establish a stipulated sum. It may also make sense to use this approach
for construction contract administration and special services, such as
energy and economic analyses.
What are reimbursable expenses?
These are out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the architect on behalf
of the project that usually cannot be predicted at the outset, such as
long-distance travel and communications, reproduction of contract
documents, authorized overtime premiums and the cost of profes-
sional liability insurance. Detailed in the Owner-Architect Agreement,
usually they are outside the stipulated sum or hourly billing rate, and
usually they are billed as they occur.
What about payment schedules?
Once the method and amount of compensation have been estab-
lished, ask the architect to provide a proposed schedule of payments.
Such a schedule will help you plan cash requirements for the project.
What other expenses can the owner expect?
The Owner-Architect Agreement outlines a number of owner respon-
sibilities, some of which will require financial outlay. These include site
surveys and legal descriptions; soils-engineering services (for exam-
ple, test borings or pits); required technical tests during construction
(for example, concrete strength tests); an on-site project representa-
tive; and the necessary legal, auditing and insurance counseling serv-
ices need to fulfill the owner’s responsibilities.
What happens if owner and architect cannot agree on
compensation?
Keep talking, so that each understands the other’s basis for negotia-
tion. Often, differences result from incomplete or inaccurate under-
standings of project scope or services. Perhaps some services can be
performed by the architect on an hourly basis or by the owner.
Perhaps coordination of owner forces, special consultants or other
actors mandated by the owner is adding to the architect’s costs. When
everything is mutually understood and there is no closure on com-
pensation level, both the owner and the architect have no choice but
to discontinue negotiation.
Keeping the Project on Track
Steps to Help Meet Your Goals
Design and building are group activities. Many people come together
to do a project; they may not have worked together before and they
may not work together again. They collaborate to produce a complex
and usually unique result. As the project unfolds, hundreds of individ-
ual design decisions and commitments are made. Needs and condi-
tions change, and work is modified. A strong and healthy relationship
between owner and architect is essential to keep the project on track.
Recognizing the Owner’s Responsibilities
The Owner-Architect Agreement provides clear guidance on what is
expected of the owner. AIA Document B141 outlines several responsi-
bilities; your architect will assist you in clarifying them. The owner must
provide:
• Design objectives, constraints and criteria, including space
requirements and relationships, flexibility, expandability,
special equipment and site requirements.
• Budgeingt (including contingencies for bidding, changes in
the work during construction and other costs that are the
owner’s responsibility) and a statement of available funds
for the project.
• A legal description and survey of the site (including
available services and utilities) as well as soils-engineering
and professional recommendations. such as test borings or
pits, soil-bearing values, percolation tests, air-and water-
pollution tests, ground water levels, etc.
• Necessary services during construction, including testing
services and (on some projects) an on-site project
representative.
• Timely information, services, decisions and approvals.
• Prompt notification of any observed faults or defects in the
project, or nonconformance with the contract documents
governing the project.
• Legal, accounting, auditing and insurance counseling
services need to fulfill the owner’s responsibilities.
Recognizing Some of the Fundamental Realities of Building
We spend more than $300 billion annually for new construction and
renovation in the United States, tens of thousands of individual proj-
ects are launched and completed each year. Architects and their
clients have had the opportunity to gain some collective wisdom from
these projects — wisdom that may be of value in project planing and
follow-through.
A good architect challenges the program, schedule and budget. Even
when these have been developed through painstaking effort, it is in
the client’s best interest to encourage this challenge. In this way, the
architect comes to understand project requirements. The analysis may
also reveal existing or potential problem areas.

GUIDE TO PRIVATE OWNERS
Project scope, quality and cost are inextricably related. Any two of
these variables can be fixed and controlled in design, the marketplace
takes care of the third. You will need to establish priorities among
them and set acceptable ranges for each.
As design proceeds, important issues will surface. The architect’s serv-
ices bring increased client understanding of the project. As a result,
the project changes. Each milestone, usually the end-of-phase submis-
sions written into the Owner-Architect Agreement, should be used to
assure continuing consensus on project scope, levels of quality, con-
struction cost and budget. It may also be necessary to adjust the serv-
ices required from the architect at these points.
The secret to a successful project is effective project management by
both owner and architect. A summary of what the owner can do to
keep the project running smoothly through design and construction
is presented here.
Project Plan Insist on a project work plan, preferable as part of the
process of negotiating the project agreements. Ask that the plan be
updated on a regular basis and after any major change in scope, serv-
ices or schedule.
Team Member Be part of the project-planning process and all proj-
ect meetings. Be sure that your own deadlines, as well as your own
decision processes, are reflected in that plan.
Client Representative Identify a single person to represent you and
to speak for you at planning sessions and project meetings. The scope
of the client representative’s authority should be understood by all
involved.
Internal Coordination If your organization requires several people or
departments to involve in the project, make it clear that the client rep-
resentative speaks as the boss. Conflicting advice or decisions mean
problems later.
Meetings Plan on regular meetings of the project team and
participate in them. Meetings should have clear agendas. Persons with
assigned tasks should have them done in time for the meetings. Be
sure the architect prepares minutes that clearly identify what
was decided, what items now require decision making, and who is
responsible for next steps. Minutes should be circulated to all team
members.
Documentation Require that contacts between architect and client
(such as phone conversations, data-gathering sessions) be document-
ed, with the results shared with appropriate member of the project
team. This keeps everyone informed of what’s being discussed and
decided outside of formal meetings.
Phases The AIA standard forms of agreement designate three major
design phases and submissions by the architect: schematic design,
design development, construction documents. You may wish to
include additional submissions, recognizing that each adds time and
cost to the project. Use these milestones to review what has been
done and to approve it as the basis for moving forward.
Decision Process Be sure that both you and your architect under-
stand the process by which you will make decisions: Who requires
what information, who requires whose approval before deciding, how
much should be allocated for review of submissions. Diagram the
process if necessary.
Decisions Make decisions when they are called for. Keeping the proj-
ect “on hold” while you decide increases the possibility of creating
conditions that may upset the delicate balance between project time,
cost and quality. Long or indefinite delays may force the architect to
assign key team members to other projects.
Agreement Modifications Keep the Owner-Architect Agreement
up-to-date. Modify it when project scope or services are changed.
Questions Pay close attention to design submissions, for the work of
each phase is further developed in the next. Examine submissions
carefully and question all that is unclear or sewemingly incorrect. All
questions should be cleared up before the nextphase begins; changes
afterwards will likely cost you time and money.
Problems Address problems when they arise, before small ones
become large ones. Regular project meetings provide a natural oppor-
tunity.
Bringing the Builders on Board
At some point, the project team must be expanded to include
the firm or firms who will build the project. There are two basic
approaches:
• The owner may select the contractor or contractors based
on bidding. Some may choose open bidding, bidding by a
few invited firms, or negotiation with a single selected
contractor or builder.
• The owner may choose to include the contractor as a
member of the design team. Usually the builder is paid a fee
for consultation during design. A stipulated sum for the
construction work is negotiated when the design is
detailed enough to serve as a basis for a cost proposal.
It is always good practice to engage the architect to assist in the bid-
ding or negotiation process and to recommend the contractor.
Whichever way the builder is selected, the architect could assist in
preparing the bidding documents and the Owner-Contractor
Agreement.
Maintaining the Professional Relationship
The architect’s services should not end with the awarding of the
construction contracts. It is highly advisable to retain the architect to:
• Observe the construction work, evaluating it for
compliance with the construction contract documents and
helping to determine that the project is being built as
designed. This service is especially important in today’s
liability climate, where the contractor’s failure to construct
what has been designed can have major consequences for
the owner.
• Review shop drawings (detailed drawings of specific
building components or assemblies submitted by the
contractor) as well as material and product samples to
confirm the contractor’s understanding of the design
intent.
• Make design changes that result from owner decisions,
design omissions or unexpected conditions in the field.
• Provide a variety of other important services for the owner
during the time, checking contractor payments requisitions
against the progress of the work, providing final
inspections and certifications for the owner, and assisting
with building start-up and user education.
Continuing the professional relationship enables the architect to
serve the client’s interest and goals throughout construction and ini-
tial occupancy of the project.
So we arrive at the bottom line: the need to complete projects that
respond to owner needs and aspirations, that are accomplished with-
in schedule and budget, and that contribute to the quality of our com-
munities and our lives within them.
Experience tells us that successful projects, those that achieve their
bottom lines, result from good clients and good architects who form
good professional, business and often personal relationships. They are
nourished by clear communication, mutually understood expecta-
tions, and a willingness of both client and architect to understand and
accept their respective responsibilities.

Owner-architect agreements spell out what both you and the
architect bring to and expect from the professional relationship
The formal agreement between owner and architect is an opportuni-
ty to assure that both see the same project before them and that both
agree on requirements and expectations. Before committing these
requirements and expectations to paper, take a look at the five steps
presented here and address any that may have been missed.
1. Establish Project Requirements
Write down your project requirements as either a short statement or a
very detailed compilation. Address these points:
• Project scope: What is to be designed and built?
• Project site: Where will (might) it be built?
• Levels of design quality and amenity
• Role of the project (in the owner’s life, business, community,
etc.)
• Schedule requirements or constraints
• Target date for completion
• Budget estimate and sources of financing
• Codes, regulations, required design reviews
2. Describe Project Tasks and Assign Responsibility for
Each One
Owner and architect should identify the predesign, design, construc-
tion and postconstruction tasks that must be undertaken to achieve
the project’s goals. The chart on pages 12 and 13 provides a starting
point. Both should then identify who will carry out each task.
Advice: To help produce a complete schedule, include all necessary
tasks, even if they will be done by others (say, a regulatory agency’s
review).
3. Develop a First-Cut Schedule
Place the tasks and responsibilities on a time line, estimate duration for
each task. Identify the tasks that, if delayed for any reason, will delay
the completion of the project. Compare the time line with the target
completion date and adjust one or both as appropriate.
Advice: Owner, architect and other key actors who must live with the
project schedule should be involved in developing it.
4. Take a Critical Look at the Results
Is the schedule reasonable, particularly given the project’s require-
ments and budget? Have you allowed each actor enough time to do
the work? Have you allowed yourself enough time to review the archi-
tect’s submissions, to seek your own recommendations and approvals,
and to make your decisions? Many project schedules don’t provide
enough time for decision making.
5. Use This Planning Work as a Basis for Establishing the
Architect’s Compensation
Ask the architect to provide you with a compensation proposal that is
based on the tasks and schedule outlined above.
The Owner-Architect Agreement
If you’ve done your homework, the written agreement should follow
without difficulty. Although a certain amount of negotiation is
inevitable, you and the architect should be of common mind on the
key issues of project scope, services, responsibilities, schedule, con-
struction budget and the architect’s compensation. Some advice on
the subject:
• Use a written contract. No handshake is firm enough to
reach all the understandings about the different roles and
obligations the owner and architect will carry out.
• Feel free to use AIA documents. These standard forms of
agreement, first developed by the American Institute of
Architects in the 1880s, have been carefully reviewed and
modified over the years. They are widely used and they
present a current consensus among organizations
representing owners, lawyers, contractors, engineers and
architects. They are “coordinated” to fit together; for
example, the Architect-Consultant Agreement serves as a
subcontract for the Owner-Architect Agreement; and the
Owner-Contractor Agreement, usually negotiated later
extends the architect’s services into the construction phase.
• If you want to modify the AIA forms, do so with great care.
Since these forms are precoordinated, even simple revisions
in one agreement may cause complications in another.
• Do not expect your architect to warrant or guarantee
results. Perfection is a shared but unrealistic ideal; it can no
more be attained in design and building than it can in any
other complex human pursuit.
• Consult your legal counsel before signing these
agreements.
COMPENSATING YOUR ARCHITECT
Appropriate professional compensation is important to meeting
your goals; cost and value go hand in hand.
Experienced clients recognize that adequate compensation for the
architect is in their best interest as it assures the type and level of serv-
ice needed to fulfill their expectations. You may have questions about
how to arrive at the appropriate compensation for your project; some
of the more frequent questions are answered here:
How much should I expect to pay an architect?
That will relate to the types and levels of professional services provid-
ed. The more service you need and the more complex or experimental
the project, the more you should budget for architectural services.
What methods of compensation are available?
These are the most common:
• A stipulated sum based on the architect’s compensation
proposal
• A stipulated sum per unit, based on what is to be built (for
example, the number of square feet, apartments, rooms)
• A percentage of the construction cost
• Hourly rates
• Combination of the above
My project is one characterized by repetitive units (beds, rooms,
apartments). Does it make sense to use these units as a basis for
compensation?
Sometimes, for example, when the probable number of units (or alter-
natively, the highest and lowest probable numbers) is known
Percentage of construction cost has been a simple and popular
method of compensation. Is it recommended?
It depends. It is simple in concept. It requires, however, a rigorous
determination of what “construction cost” includes and does not
include. The result may be too high or too low given the complexity of
the project and the professional services needed to accomplish it.
Finally, this method may penalize the architect for investing extra
effort to reduce construction cost on behalf of the owner.

What does a stipulated sum include?
This is a matter of negotiation with your architect, but generally it
includes the architect’s direct personnel expenses (salary and fringe
benefits), other direct expenses chargeable to the project (such as
consultant services), indirect expense or overhead (costs of doing
business not directly chargeable to specific projects) and profit.
When does it make sense to consider hourly billing methods?
Again, this is a matter of negotiation, but it makes special sense when
there are many unknowns. Indeed, many projects begin this way, con-
tinuing until the scope of services is determined and it is possible to
establish a stipulated sum. It may also make sense to use this approach
for construction contract administration and special services, such as
energy and economic analyses.
What are reimbursable expenses?
These are out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the architect on behalf
of the project that usually cannot be predicted at the outset, such as
long-distance travel and communications, reproduction of contract
documents, authorized overtime premiums and the cost of profes-
sional liability insurance. Detailed in the Owner-Architect Agreement,
usually they are outside the stipulated sum or hourly billing rate, and
usually they are billed as they occur.
What about payment schedules?
Once the method and amount of compensation have been estab-
lished, ask the architect to provide a proposed schedule of payments.
Such a schedule will help you plan cash requirements for the project.
What other expenses can the owner expect?
The Owner-Architect Agreement outlines a number of owner respon-
sibilities, some of which will require financial outlay. These include site
surveys and legal descriptions; soils-engineering services (for exam-
ple, test borings or pits); required technical tests during construction
(for example, concrete strength tests); an on-site project representa-
tive; and the necessary legal, auditing and insurance counseling serv-
ices need to fulfill the owner’s responsibilities.
What happens if owner and architect cannot agree on
compensation?
Keep talking, so that each understands the other’s basis for negotia-
tion. Often, differences result from incomplete or inaccurate under-
standings of project scope or services. Perhaps some services can be
performed by the architect on an hourly basis or by the owner.
Perhaps coordination of owner forces, special consultants or other
actors mandated by the owner is adding to the architect’s costs. When
everything is mutually understood and there is no closure on com-
pensation level, both the owner and the architect have no choice but
to discontinue negotiation.
KEEPING THE PROJECT ON TRACK
Both you and the architect can take specific steps to help meet
your quality, time, and budget goals.
Design and building are group activities. Many people and firms come
together to do a project; they may not have worked together before
and they may not work together again. They collaborate to produce a
complex and usually unique result on a specific site. As the project
unfolds, hundreds of individual design decisions and commitments
are made. Needs and conditions change, and work is modified. A
strong and healthy relationship between owner and architect is essen-
tial to keep the project on track.
Recognizing the Owner’s Responsibilities
The Owner-Architect Agreement provides clear guidance on what is
expected of the owner. AIA Document B141 outlines several responsi-
bilities; your architect will assist you in clarifying them. The owner must
provide:
• Design objectives, constraints and criteria, including space
requirements and relationships, flexibility, expandability,
special equipment and site requirements
• Budget (including contingencies for bidding, changes in the
work during construction and other costs that are the
owner’s responsibility) and a statement of available funds
for the project
• A legal description and survey of the site (including
available services and utilities) as well as soils-engineering
services and professional recommendations (including test
borings or pits, soil-bearing values, percolation tests, air-and
water-pollution tests, ground water levels)
• Necessary services during construction, including testing
services and (on some projects) an on-site project
representative
• Timely information, services, decisions and approvals
• Prompt notification of any observed faults or defects in the
project, or nonconformance with the contract documents
governing the project
• Legal, accounting, auditing and insurance counseling
services need to fulfill the owner’s responsibilities.
Recognizing Some of the Fundamental Realities of Building
We spend more than $300 billion annually for new construction and
renovation in the United States, tens of thousands of individual proj-
ects are launched and completed each year. Architects and their
clients have had the opportunity to gain some collective wisdom from
these projects — wisdom that may be of value in project planing and
follow-through.
Project scope, quality and cost are inextricably related. Any two of these
variables can be fixed and controlled in design, the marketplace takes
care of the third. You will need to establish priorities among them and
set acceptable ranges for each one.
A good architect challenges the program, schedule and budget. Even
when these have been developed through painstaking effort, it is in
the client’s best interest to encourage this challenge. In this way, the
architect comes to understand project requirements. The analysis may
also reveal existing or potential problem areas.
As design proceeds, important issues will surface. The architect’s services
bring increased client understanding of the project. As a result, the
project changes. Each milestone, usually the end-of-phase submis-
sions written into the Owner-Architect Agreement, should be used to
assure continuing consensus on project scope, levels of quality, con-
struction cost and budget. It may also be necessary to adjust the serv-
ices required from the architect at these points.
The secret to a successful project is effective project management by both
owner and architect. A summary of what the owner can do to keep the
project running smoothly through design and construction is present-
ed here.
Project Plan. Insist on a project work plan, preferable as part of the
process of negotiating the project agreements. Ask that the plan be
updated on a regular basis and after any major change in scope, serv-
ices or schedule.

ices required from the architect at these points.
The secret to a successful project is effective project management by both
owner and architect. A summary of what the owner can do to keep the
project running smoothly through design and construction is present-
ed here.
Project Plan. Insist on a project work plan, preferable as part of the
process of negotiating the project agreements. Ask that the plan be
updated on a regular basis and after any major change in scope, serv-
ices or schedule.
Team Member. Be part of the project-planning process and all project
meetings. Be sure that your own deadlines, as well as your own deci-
sion processes, are reflected in that plan.
Client Representative. Identify a single person to represent you and to
speak for you at planning sessions and project meetings. The scope of
the client representative’s authority should be understood by all
involved.
Internal Coordination. If yours is an organization where several people
or departments must be involved in the project work, make it clear
that the client representative speaks as the boss. Conflicting advice or
requirements will inevitably cause problems later.
Meetings. Plan on regular meetings of the project team and participate
in them. Meetings should have clear agendas. Persons with assigned
tasks should have them done in time for the meetings. Be sure the
architect prepares minutes that clearly identify what was decided,
what items now require decision making, and who is responsible for
next steps. Minutes should be circulated to all team members.
Documentation. Require that contacts between architect and client
(for example, phone conversations, data-gathering sessions) be docu-
mented, with the results shared with appropriate member of the proj-
ect team. This system keeps everyone informed of what’s being dis-
cussed and decided outside of formal project meetings and presenta-
tions.
Phases. The AIA standard forms of agreement designate three major
design phases and submissions by the architect: schematic design,
design development, construction documents. You may wish to
include additional submissions, recognizing that each adds time and
cost to the project. Use these milestones to review what has been
done and to approve it as the basis for moving forward.
Decision Process. Be sure that both you and your architect understand
the process by which you will make decisions: Who requires what
information, who requires whose approval before deciding, how much
should be allocated for review of submissions. Diagram the process if
you are unsure.
Decisions. Make decisions when they are called for. Keeping the proj-
ect “on hold” while you decide increases the possibility of changes in
conditions that may upset the delicate balance between project time,
cost and quality. Long or indefinite delays may force the architect to
assign key team members to other projects.
Agreement Modifications. Keep the Owner-Architect Agreement up-to-
date. Modify it when project scope or services are changed.
Questions. When you have questions, ask them. Pay particular attention
to design submissions, for the work of each phase is further developed
in the next. Look at these submissions carefully and ask about any-
thing that is unclear or incorrect. All questions should be cleared up
before the construction contract documents phase begins; changes
after this point will most likely cost you time and money.
Problems. Address problems when they arise and before small ones
become large ones. Regular project meetings provide a natural oppor-
tunity.
Bringing the Builders on Board
At some point, the project team must be expanded to include
the firm or firms who will build the project. There are two basic
approaches:
• The owner may select the contractor or contractors based
on the construction contract documents. Public owners
generally must engage in an open competitive bidding
process. Other owners may choose open competitive
bidding, competitive bidding by a few invited firms, or
negotiation with a single selected contractor or builder.
• The owner may choose to include the contractor as a
member of the design team. Usually the builder is paid a fee
for consultation during design; a stipulated sum for the
construction work is negotiated when the design is
detailed enough to serve as a basis for a cost proposal.
However and whenever builders are selected, it is likely that the
architect will assist in preparing the bidding documents and the
Owner-Contractor Agreement forms as part of the construction
contract documents.
It is good practice to engage the architect to assist in the bidding or
negotiation process and to recommend construction contractors.
Maintaining the Professional Relationship
The architect’s services should not end with the awarding of the
construction contracts. It is highly advisable to retain the architect to:
• Observe the construction work, evaluating it for
compliance with the construction contract documents and
helping to determine that the project is being built as
designed. This service is especially important in today’s
liability climate, where the contractor’s failure to construct
what has been designed can have major consequences for
the owner.
• Review shop drawings (detailed drawings of specific
building components or assemblies submitted by the
contractor) as well as material and product samples to
confirm the contractor’s understanding of the design
intent.
• Make design changes that result from owner decisions,
design omissions or unexpected conditions in the field.
• Provide a variety of other important services for the owner
during the time, checking contractor payments requisitions
against the progress of the work, providing final
inspections and certifications for the owner, and assisting
with building start-up and user education.
Continuing the professional relationship enables the architect to serve
the client’s interest and goals throughout construction and initial
occupancy of the project.

So we arrive at the bottom line — the need to complete projects that
respond to owner needs and aspirations, that are accomplished with-
in schedule and budget, and that contribute to the quality of our com-
munities and our lives within them.
Experience tells us that successful projects — those that achieve their
bottom lines — result from good clients and good architects who
form good professional, business and often personal relationships.
These relationships are formed early on; they are nourished by clear
communication, mutually understood expectations, and a willingness
of both client and architect to understand and accept their responsi-
bilities for realizing a successful project.

Qualifications-Based Selection –
A Process for the Selection of Architects by Public Owners
PREFACE
How do public owners choose an architect? When selecting a design
professional, a public owner’s primary concerns are to get the best
available design services for the taxpayers’ money and conduct a fair
and equitable selection process. Qualifications-based selection, or QBS,
evolved from the public owner’s need to be an informed consumer and
to have a logical, fair, and objective means of selecting an architect.
This traditional, qualifications-based approach to procuring architec-
tural and engineering services on publicly funded projects was codified
into law (P.L. 92-582) in l972 by the U.S. Congress. Called the “Brooks
Act” after U.S. Representative Jack Brooks of Texas, the legislation’s
sponsor, the law requires that architects and engineers be selected for
all federal government projects on the basis of qualifications, subject to
negotiation of fair and reasonable compensation.
Whether it’s called Brooks selection or qualifications-based selection,
the process is the same. It provides owners with a fair, rational, and effi-
cient method of selecting an architect based on an evaluation of the
architect’s qualifications and competence as they relate to the
demands and needs of the specific project. QBS is used not only by the
federal government but also by most states and numerous localities.
And QBS is recommended by the American Bar Association’s Model
Procurement Code for State and Local Government.
The American Institute of Architects has long supported the qualifica-
tions-based approach to selecting architects for public projects. All
clients in the public and private sectors are, of course, free to choose an
architect by whatever lawful method they believe best suits their
needs, and it is not the policy of the AIA that it is unprofessional or
unethical for architects to submit price quotations. Long experience
with many successful and unsuccessful projects tells us, however, that
selection first on the basis of qualifications, followed by negotiation of
a fair and reasonable fee, is most likely to achieve the good results every
public owner desires.
WHY DO PUBLIC OWNERS USE QBS?
The QBS process recognizes that design professionals play a critical role
in the public building process and that procurement of architectural
services is a very specialized type of procurement. The quality of the
design services provided by the architect or engineer is the single most
important factor in determining the overall construction costs and life-
cycle costs of a building. Since design services represent only a small
percentage of the initial construction budget, it is in the best interest of
the taxpayer to ensure that the most qualified firms are selected for
public projects.
Competitive bidding for architectural and engineering services is not in
the best interest of the public owner. At the beginning of the selection
procedure, the client often is not aware of which professional services
are required; the client and the selected architect define the scope of
those services as part of their negotiation to ensure that the services
provided fully meet the owner’s needs.
In recommending QBS for public owners, the American Bar
Association’s Model Procurement Code for State and Local
Governments says:
The principal reasons supporting this selection procedure for architect-
engineer and land surveying services are the lack of a definitive
scope of work for such services at the time the selection is made and
the importance of selecting the best qualified firm. In general, the
architect-engineer or land surveyor is engaged to represent the (state’s)
interest and is, therefore, in a different relationship with the (state) from
that normally existing in a buyer-seller situation. For these reasons, the
qualifications, competence, and availability of three most qualified
architect-engineer or land surveying firms is considered initially, and
price negotiated later.
In addition, studies have shown that the use of QBS for public buildings
is more efficient and less costly than the use of a selection system that
uses price as a primary criteria.1 (see endnote)
HOW DOES QBS WORK?
QBS is a fair and rational procedure that facilitates the selection of a
design professional for government projects based on qualifications
and competence in relation to the scope and needs of the particular
project. There is no magic process that is QBS. Instead, QBS evolves
from multiple variables that must be tailored to fit each specific
project.
In most instances, the QBS process will include all or part of the
following steps.
l. The owner identifies the general scope of work.
2. The selection time frame is established.
3. A list of architectural firms is compiled.
4. Letters of qualifications are requested.
5. Letters of qualifications are evaluated.
6. A short list of firms to be interviewed is determined.
7. A tour of the site and/or facility is arranged for short-listed
firms.
8. Interviews are conducted and the firms ranked for
selection.
9. A contract is negotiated with the selected firm. If an
agreement cannot be reached with the top-ranked firm,
those negotiations are ended and negotiations begin with
the second-ranked firm, and so on down the line until
agreement is reached.
l0. All firms involved receive post-selection communications.
This process, and variations, are detailed in the following sections.
DEVELOPING THE GENERAL SCOPE OF WORK
To begin the selection process, the public owner must briefly identify
the general scope and the particular needs of the project. Just as the
owner needs information about the qualifications and competence of
the architectural firms, the firms need to know what the project param-
eters are. When the scope of work is properly described and communi-
cated, it saves time, money, and effort for the owner and the architects
alike. A well-defined scope of work allows the architectural firms to tai-
lor their statements of qualifications directly to the project require-
ments, and provides the owner with a more uniform basis for evaluat-
ing the responses.
The following are the basic elements that normally will be included in a
statement of the scope of work for a public project:
• Owner’s name.
• Description of function and short history of the owner
organization or agency, including the goals or events that
prompt the project.
• Project name or identification.
• Project location.
• Contact person. (This person should be identified clearly as
the only person to contact for information on the project.)
• The selection panel or client groups, e.g., boards,
foundations, committees, and citizen groups, are identified
and their involvement explained.
• Other construction in process or planned for the same site
but not part of the scope of work is described.
• Completed studies, surveys, and/or preliminary feasibility
work that are relevant to the project and available to the
firms that will be short-listed and interviewed are described.
• Requirements are set for further feasibility planning prior to
design and construction.
• Project outline is developed, including intended size,
function, and occupancy and other general anticipated
requirements, e.g., renovation, demolition, additions, new
construction, and energy, land use, and site selection
considerations.
• Anticipated time frame is set, including completion of
design work, beginning of construction, and planned
project completion date.
• Architect selection process is described, including
involvement of groups mentioned above.
• Additional or unique requirements/considerations are
identified, such as referenda, anticipated funding delays,
and budgeting.
Additional items may be added to this list as appropriate to provide
guidance to the competing firms and meet the needs of the owner. All
services the owner wishes the architect to provide—including feasibil-
ity studies, design, construction coordination, and budget develop-
ment—should be specifically identified.
A generic form for guidance in preparing a project scope and examples
of completed scope of work statements are included on the following
pages.
ESTABLISHING A SELECTION TIME FRAME
To keep the process of selecting an architect proceeding smoothly,
owners should establish a time frame for completion of the selection
process. Establishing the time frame prevents misunderstandings and
last-minute surprises that might delay or sidetrack the process.
The time frame for each public project will differ, depending upon the
nature of the project, the concerns of the owner, and other factors. In
some instances, the tour of existing facilities may be provided to firms
prior to short-listing. Usually, however, tours will only be provided to
short-listed firms. There may also be instances where the complexity
of a project calls for second or third interviews, although multiple
interviews should be generally discouraged. In any case, the time frame
should be modified to ensure that all of these variables are taken
into account and that the established schedule is appropriate for the
project.
A sample time schedule form is included on the following pages to
provide guidance in developing a time frame.
COMPILING A LIST OF ARCHITECTURAL FIRMS
How does the public owner identify architecture firms from which to
request a statement of qualifications? Some of the factors that should
be considered in compiling the list of architecture firms are:
• The number of firms the owner wishes to involve
• The geographic location and distribution of the firms.
Advertisements. Placing public notices of projects in newspapers and
trade or professional publications is often required by state or local laws
and regulations. Such announcements will reach a significant sector of
the architectural community and will result in a large number of
responses through the mail and over the telephone. If this approach is
used, the owner should be prepared to spend time evaluating these ini-
tial expressions of interest to narrow the list down to a workable num-
ber of firms, which will then be asked to submit letters of qualifications.
Directories. Some professional organizations publish directories or
make mailing lists of their member firms available.These are often help-
ful in identifying firms with interest and/or experience in specific types
of projects. Some AIA chapters also operate job referral programs to
help owners locate firms. Local telephone yellow pages and other kinds
of community business directories are also a source of architecture
firms, and can usually be found in the reference section of the local
library.
Referrals. To identify firms on a more selective basis, an owner may wish
to contact other owners who have used architects’ services recently on
their own projects.
How many firms should be included on the list?
There is no magic formula. The owner should determine the number
appropriate for the specific project and circumstances.
Requesting Letters of Qualifications
When the list of firms to be considered is compiled, the owner should
prepare the following materials to send to the firms:
l. A memo to all firms that are being invited to
submit their statements of qualifications, listing all firms in
alphabetical order (it is customary for owners to let firms
know the names of other competing firms)
2. A list of requested information to be included with the
firms’ statements and letters of qualifications
3. A schedule of planned activities

It is most important that all firms receive the same materials so that all
of the firms’ responses will be based on the same set of project specifi-

The exchange of information between the owner and the architecture
firms is an important initial phase in the selection process. The individ-

question from one firm reveals an important item of information miss-
ing from the materials sent to the firms, all of the firms should be sup-
plied in writing with that piece of information.

Qualifications-Based Selection –
A Process for the Selection of Architects by Public Owners
PREFACE
How do public owners choose an architect? When selecting a design
professional, a public owner’s primary concerns are to get the best
available design services for the taxpayers’ money and conduct a fair
and equitable selection process. Qualifications-based selection, or QBS,
evolved from the public owner’s need to be an informed consumer and
to have a logical, fair, and objective means of selecting an architect.
This traditional, qualifications-based approach to procuring architec-
tural and engineering services on publicly funded projects was codified
into law (P.L. 92-582) in l972 by the U.S. Congress. Called the “Brooks
Act” after U.S. Representative Jack Brooks of Texas, the legislation’s
sponsor, the law requires that architects and engineers be selected for
all federal government projects on the basis of qualifications, subject to
negotiation of fair and reasonable compensation.
Whether it’s called Brooks selection or qualifications-based selection,
the process is the same. It provides owners with a fair, rational, and effi-
cient method of selecting an architect based on an evaluation of the
architect’s qualifications and competence as they relate to the
demands and needs of the specific project. QBS is used not only by the
federal government but also by most states and numerous localities.
And QBS is recommended by the American Bar Association’s Model
Procurement Code for State and Local Government.
The American Institute of Architects has long supported the qualifica-
tions-based approach to selecting architects for public projects. All
clients in the public and private sectors are, of course, free to choose an
architect by whatever lawful method they believe best suits their
needs, and it is not the policy of the AIA that it is unprofessional or
unethical for architects to submit price quotations. Long experience
with many successful and unsuccessful projects tells us, however, that
selection first on the basis of qualifications, followed by negotiation of
a fair and reasonable fee, is most likely to achieve the good results every
public owner desires.
WHY DO PUBLIC OWNERS USE QBS?
The QBS process recognizes that design professionals play a critical role
in the public building process and that procurement of architectural
services is a very specialized type of procurement. The quality of the
design services provided by the architect or engineer is the single most
important factor in determining the overall construction costs and life-
cycle costs of a building. Since design services represent only a small
percentage of the initial construction budget, it is in the best interest of
the taxpayer to ensure that the most qualified firms are selected for
public projects.
Competitive bidding for architectural and engineering services is not in
the best interest of the public owner. At the beginning of the selection
procedure, the client often is not aware of which professional services
are required; the client and the selected architect define the scope of
those services as part of their negotiation to ensure that the services
provided fully meet the owner’s needs.
In recommending QBS for public owners, the American Bar
Association’s Model Procurement Code for State and Local
Governments says:
The principal reasons supporting this selection procedure for architect-
engineer and land surveying services are the lack of a definitive
scope of work for such services at the time the selection is made and
the importance of selecting the best qualified firm. In general, the
architect-engineer or land surveyor is engaged to represent the (state’s)
interest and is, therefore, in a different relationship with the (state) from
that normally existing in a buyer-seller situation. For these reasons, the
qualifications, competence, and availability of three most qualified
architect-engineer or land surveying firms is considered initially, and
price negotiated later.
In addition, studies have shown that the use of QBS for public buildings
is more efficient and less costly than the use of a selection system that
uses price as a primary criteria.1 (see endnote)
HOW DOES QBS WORK?
QBS is a fair and rational procedure that facilitates the selection of a
design professional for government projects based on qualifications
and competence in relation to the scope and needs of the particular
project. There is no magic process that is QBS. Instead, QBS evolves
from multiple variables that must be tailored to fit each specific
project.
In most instances, the QBS process will include all or part of the
following steps.
l. The owner identifies the general scope of work.
2. The selection time frame is established.
3. A list of architectural firms is compiled.
4. Letters of qualifications are requested.
5. Letters of qualifications are evaluated.
6. A short list of firms to be interviewed is determined.
7. A tour of the site and/or facility is arranged for short-listed
firms.
8. Interviews are conducted and the firms ranked for
selection.
9. A contract is negotiated with the selected firm. If an
agreement cannot be reached with the top-ranked firm,
those negotiations are ended and negotiations begin with
the second-ranked firm, and so on down the line until
agreement is reached.
l0. All firms involved receive post-selection communications.
This process, and variations, are detailed in the following sections.
DEVELOPING THE GENERAL SCOPE OF WORK
To begin the selection process, the public owner must briefly identify
the general scope and the particular needs of the project. Just as the
owner needs information about the qualifications and competence of
the architectural firms, the firms need to know what the project param-
eters are. When the scope of work is properly described and communi-
cated, it saves time, money, and effort for the owner and the architects
alike. A well-defined scope of work allows the architectural firms to tai-
lor their statements of qualifications directly to the project require-
ments, and provides the owner with a more uniform basis for evaluat-
ing the responses.
The following are the basic elements that normally will be included in a
statement of the scope of work for a public project:
• Owner’s name.
• Description of function and short history of the owner
organization or agency, including the goals or events that
prompt the project.
• Project name or identification.
• Project location.
• Contact person. (This person should be identified clearly as
the only person to contact for information on the project.)
• The selection panel or client groups, e.g., boards,
foundations, committees, and citizen groups, are identified
and their involvement explained.
• Other construction in process or planned for the same site
but not part of the scope of work is described.
• Completed studies, surveys, and/or preliminary feasibility
work that are relevant to the project and available to the
firms that will be short-listed and interviewed are described.
• Requirements are set for further feasibility planning prior to
design and construction.
• Project outline is developed, including intended size,
function, and occupancy and other general anticipated
requirements, e.g., renovation, demolition, additions, new
construction, and energy, land use, and site selection
considerations.
• Anticipated time frame is set, including completion of
design work, beginning of construction, and planned
project completion date.
• Architect selection process is described, including
involvement of groups mentioned above.
• Additional or unique requirements/considerations are
identified, such as referenda, anticipated funding delays,
and budgeting.
Additional items may be added to this list as appropriate to provide
guidance to the competing firms and meet the needs of the owner. All
services the owner wishes the architect to provide—including feasibil-
ity studies, design, construction coordination, and budget develop-
ment—should be specifically identified.
A generic form for guidance in preparing a project scope and examples
of completed scope of work statements are included on the following
pages.
ESTABLISHING A SELECTION TIME FRAME
To keep the process of selecting an architect proceeding smoothly,
owners should establish a time frame for completion of the selection
process. Establishing the time frame prevents misunderstandings and
last-minute surprises that might delay or sidetrack the process.
The time frame for each public project will differ, depending upon the
nature of the project, the concerns of the owner, and other factors. In
some instances, the tour of existing facilities may be provided to firms
prior to short-listing. Usually, however, tours will only be provided to
short-listed firms. There may also be instances where the complexity
of a project calls for second or third interviews, although multiple
interviews should be generally discouraged. In any case, the time frame
should be modified to ensure that all of these variables are taken
into account and that the established schedule is appropriate for the
project.
A sample time schedule form is included on the following pages to
provide guidance in developing a time frame.
COMPILING A LIST OF ARCHITECTURAL FIRMS
How does the public owner identify architecture firms from which to
request a statement of qualifications? Some of the factors that should
be considered in compiling the list of architecture firms are:
• The number of firms the owner wishes to involve
• The geographic location and distribution of the firms.
Advertisements. Placing public notices of projects in newspapers and
trade or professional publications is often required by state or local laws
and regulations. Such announcements will reach a significant sector of
the architectural community and will result in a large number of
responses through the mail and over the telephone. If this approach is
used, the owner should be prepared to spend time evaluating these ini-
tial expressions of interest to narrow the list down to a workable num-
ber of firms, which will then be asked to submit letters of qualifications.
Directories. Some professional organizations publish directories or
make mailing lists of their member firms available.These are often help-
ful in identifying firms with interest and/or experience in specific types
of projects. Some AIA chapters also operate job referral programs to
help owners locate firms. Local telephone yellow pages and other kinds
of community business directories are also a source of architecture
firms, and can usually be found in the reference section of the local
library.
Referrals. To identify firms on a more selective basis, an owner may wish
to contact other owners who have used architects’ services recently on
their own projects.
How many firms should be included on the list?
There is no magic formula. The owner should determine the number
appropriate for the specific project and circumstances.
Requesting Letters of Qualifications
When the list of firms to be considered is compiled, the owner should
prepare the following materials to send to the firms:
l. A memo to all firms that are being invited to
submit their statements of qualifications, listing all firms in
alphabetical order (it is customary for owners to let firms
know the names of other competing firms)
2. A list of requested information to be included with the
firms’ statements and letters of qualifications
3. A schedule of planned activities
4. A scope-of-work statement.
It is most important that all firms receive the same materials so that all
of the firms’ responses will be based on the same set of project specifi-
cations and constraints and, therefore, can fairly be compared with one
another.
The exchange of information between the owner and the architecture
firms is an important initial phase in the selection process. The individ-
ual who is listed as the public owner’s representative on the memo
requesting letters of qualifications should be prepared to handle tele-
phone calls and authorized to respond to questions from the firms. If a
question from one firm reveals an important item of information miss-
ing from the materials sent to the firms, all of the firms should be sup-
plied in writing with that piece of information.

Sample forms to assist with this step in the QBS process are included
on the following pages. (The federal government standard forms
254/255 are often requested by public owners as firms’ statements of
qualifications. The forms are easy to use and are familiar to most firms.)
Evaluating the Letters of Qualifications
The selection committee of individuals assigned the task of develop-
ing a short list of firms should evaluate the letters of qualifications
received from the firms. (It is up to the owner to ensure that the screen-
ing committee is composed of competent individuals who will be able
to make an intelligent selection decision.) It is recommended that the
owner establish the policy up front that statements of qualifications
received after the deadline not be considered.
The number of firms to be included on the short list—and then inter-
viewed—may vary depending on the size and scope of the project.
Three to five firms are generally sufficient.
Sample evaluation forms are provided on the following pages to assist
with reviewing and short-listing firms based on their letters of qualifi-
cations. These forms should be tailored to meet the specific project
needs.
A form for checking references of firms the owner is particularly inter-
ested in is also included on the following pages; references should be
checked between the time the letters of qualifications are received and
the time the selection committee meets to develop a short list.
ESTABLISHING A SHORT LIST OF FIRMS TO BE INTERVIEWED
Based upon the evaluation of the letters of qualifications and reference
checks discussed in the preceding section, the public owner can estab-
lish a short list of three to five firms to be interviewed for the project.
Because all the firms who submitted their letters of qualifications have
made a commitment of time and expense in pursuing the project, the
owner should contact the firms not selected for the short list as well as
those to be interviewed.The memo sent to the firms who did not make
the short list can express thanks and identify the firms who will be
invited in to interview. A sample memo is included on the following
pages.
The firms selected for interviews should immediately be sent informa-
tion regarding the interview requirements.What should be included in
the memo to these firms? The following elements should be consid-
ered.
l. A date should be established for a tour or tours of the site/
facilities as appropriate. The tour provides the firms with an
important firsthand look at the concerns that gave rise to
the project. The tour also provides a further opportunity for
an exchange of information about the project between the
owner and the firms. If the project site is vacant, the owner
may simply provide maps and directions to the site for the
firms to visit themselves; if there are existing facilities,
however, the firms will probably want the opportunity to
tour them with the owner.
2. A list of interview criteria and questions and an explanation
of the scoring and selection process should be sent to the
firms on the short list. Predetermining the selection scoring
criteria and specific areas of owner concern and providing
that information to the short-listed firms will provide the
interviewing committee with the best possible basis for
making an “apples to apples”comparison of the firms.
3. If the owner has feasibility studies, a project program, or
other background information on the project, these
materials should be submitted to the firms or made
available to them for purposes of review.
4. Other specifics regarding the interviews themselves,
including the date, place, time, and the names of the
members of the group that will be conducting the
interviews, should also be included.
A sample of the memo to short-listed firms is included on the follow-
ing pages. The memo and very important scoring and evaluation
sheets should be tailored to meet the owner’s criteria and specific pri-
orities and concerns.
TOURS OF SITE AND/OR FACILITY
In many instances, tours of a facility or project site will be an integral
part of the selection process. Such tours provide interested architec-
ture firms with the opportunity to obtain first-hand information per-
taining to the proposed project.
Tours can be handled individually, i.e., the owner’s representative meet-
ing individually with representatives of competing firms, or in a group,
i.e., all interested firms meeting at a given date, time, and place for a
group review of the site and/or facility. Vacant, particularly rural, sites
are often left to the architects to visit by themselves.
Another issue that arises pertaining to tours is whether to offer tours to
all interested firms or just to those firms that have been short-listed
and invited in for interviews. Again, this is a question that should be
resolved with the individual needs of the owner and project in mind.
In most cases, however, it is recommended that one tour be provided
for short-listed firms only.
INTERVIEWING THE SHORT-LISTED FIRMS
Purpose. The interviews of the short-listed firms give the owner an
opportunity to compare the firms’ different approaches to the design
process, as well as their interpretations and understanding of the spe-
cific project requirements. The owner should not expect sketches of
the project at this time.The design requirements for even “simple”proj-
ects can be quite complex, and the architect will not be sufficiently
aware of the owner’s needs and requirements at this stage to be able
to produce a meaningful design solution.
The interviews are designed to allow for the evaluation of the person-
al styles of each firm’s management and key personnel and how they
match up with the pre-identified criteria for the owner’s project. It is
imperative that the architectural personnel to be assigned to the proj-
ect, as well as key representatives from the firm’s consultants, be pres-
ent at the interview. It is also essential for the project users to be
involved in the interview process. Direct interaction between the
owner/user and the architect is essential for the development of a
design that truly meets the owner’s needs.
Set-Up. The physical set-up for the interview should be comfortable,
with good acoustics and ample room. A separate area should be
provided for firms waiting to be interviewed. Equipment
such as blackboards, flip charts, and audiovisual screens probably
will be useful if available, although most firms will bring their
own equipment as needed to present their materials. Since equipment
set-up time may cause some delays in the interviewing process,

two rooms should be used if possible. While one firm is being inter-
viewed in the first room, another firm can set up for its presentation in
the second room, thereby speeding up the process and ensuring that
important interview time is not spent checking equipment.
Most interviews are held in a closed session. If applicable statutes or
regulations require an open public meeting, the firms should be noti-
fied of this in advance.
Some Interviewing Guidelines. The following are suggested guidelines
for setting up and conducting the interviews.
• Interview only the firms communicated with during the
selection process to ensure that all interviewed firms have
had an equal opportunity to prepare their presentations.
• Schedule 45 minutes for each presentation and 15 minutes
between interviews. This should allow ample time for the
presentation and question-and-answer period, and for the
committee members to discuss the presentation among
themselves before beginning the next interview.
• Schedule all of the interviews on the same day. This permits
the committee to compare all of the interviewed firms
while information is fresh in their minds and ensures
consistent interview scoring.
• The evaluation criteria for the interview scoring system
should be communicated to all firms in advance.
• While it is appropriate to question firms about how they
would approach the design of a project, owners should not
ask for an actual design solution during the interview.
Appropriate and responsive designs require considerably
more interaction between owner and architect than is
possible during the selection phase. If either the owner or
the architect comes to the project with a preconceived
design solution, considerable time and energy may have to
be spent to get beyond it to a better one, or the existence of
it may stop further inquiry and prevent other, perhaps
optimum, solutions from being explored.
• Owners may want to ask how the firms plan to develop an
appropriate level of compensation for their professional
services, but specific compensation amounts are best
resolved through detailed discussions with the firm finally
selected, and only after there is a comprehensive and
mutual understanding of the actual scope of services.
• Let all firms know when the selection decision will be made.
If possible, it is recommended that the decision be made on
the same date as the interviews after the committee has
had ample time to evaluate all firms.
RANKING THE FIRMS IN CONTENTION FOR SELECTION
An evaluation form that includes a weight and a score for each crite-
ria/question is a useful instrument for evaluating, ranking, and, finally,
selecting the most qualified firm. Each firm should be evaluated sepa-
rately by each interviewer during the firms’ presentations and inter-
views. The head of the interviewing committee should compile the
individual score sheets when all the interviews have been concluded.
This system provides a documented record of the selection process as
support for the selection committee’s actions. It is recommended that
the selection committee members take the time to achieve the ranking
and selection by consensus rather than just by majority vote.
A sample evaluation/ranking system is included on the following
pages.
After interviews and ranking are completed, a memo should be pre-
pared and mailed to all firms that participated in the interview process.
The memo should list all interviewed firms in alphabetical order and
state by name in what order the committee ranked them. (It is custom-
ary for owners to provide this information as a courtesy to the firms.) A
sample post-interview memo is included on the following pages.
NEGOTIATING AN AGREEMENT WITH THE SELECTED FIRM
As soon as possible after selection, the owner should begin negotia-
tions with the firm deemed most qualified. If an agreement on the
scope of services and compensation cannot be reached, negotiations
with the first-ranked firm should be terminated, and the owner should
open negotiations with the second-ranked firm. Normally it is not dif-
ficult to reach an agreement on fee, since the QBS process facilitates an
early understanding of the project scope and requirements through
the progression of steps involved in the selection.
The following are additional suggested considerations.
• A detailed and comprehensive scope of services should be
developed jointly by the owner and the top-ranked firm.
This is often accomplished through one or more meetings
of the architect and the owner, leading to the submission by
the architect of a project and work plan. The work plan
should list consultants and the roles and responsibilities of
all members of the design team as well as the owner.
• A written contract should be used. The parties may wish to
use the AIA standard forms of agreement. These contracts
are widely used, time tested, and designed to coordinate
the needs of the owners, contractors, and architects.
• The agreement between the owner and architect should
ensure that both parties have the same expectations and
understanding of the project requirements.
• Legal counsel should be involved in the development of the
agreements.
• The architecture firm should submit its proposal for
compensation to the owner to initiate fee negotiations.

In l985 the AIA completed a comparative study of the architect and
engineer selection systems in the states of Maryland and Florida. The
study concluded that the Maryland system, which used price as a major
factor in selection, resulted in costly time delays and was significantly
more expensive to administer than the traditional qualifications-based
process used in Florida. In recognition of the cost and inefficiency, the
State of Maryland changed its selection system to QBS procedures in
April of l985. Copies of the AIA study, Selecting Architects and
Engineers for Public Building Projects: An Analysis and Comparison of
the Maryland and Florida Systems, are available from the AIA govern-
ment affairs department.

Who Speaks for the AIA/LA Chapter?
A Policy Statement
Board members, Committee members, AIA/LA nominees to other bodies, and AIA/LA staff members all represent the AIA/LA in numerous
and varied capacities.
From time to time, any one of us may be asked to speak for the AIA/LA. It is expected that each AIA/LA member will be an articulate,
forceful voice for the profession as each of us draws on the strength of personal convictions, training, experience and insights.
However, none of us speaks formally for the AIA/LA unless so empowered by the Board of Directors. To speak for the AIA/LA, to represent
“the AIA/LA’s position” to the public, we must secure Board endorsement and be designated by the Board to speak on its behalf.
If time does not permit to seek Board endorsement of a point of view that any one of us wishes to express, then we are required to be clear
about whom we represent (e.g. “I’m speaking as chair of the Urban Design Committee”or “I’m speaking as an individual architect,”etc.) Please
be clear that you are not representing the opinion of the AIA/LA.
It is also worth noting that Committee members do not speak for their Committees unless empowered to do so by the appropriate
Committee chair.
Of course, AIA/LA members are urged to cherish the right to free expression by employing it, by speaking out whenever appropriate as
citizens and professionals. The AIA/LA policy statement is meant to clarify how AIA/LA institutional points of view can be expressed.

Firm Introduction:
Griffin Enright Architects fuses interests in innovation and experimentation with a
desire to explore cultural complexities relative to the built environment. Their versatile
practice includes projects ranging from large-scale commercial and residential com-
missions to furniture design and gallery installations. Their work moves beyond the tra-
ditional scope of architectural practice, underscoring connections with the surround-
ing urban fabric and landscape by reinforcing existing conditions or creating new ones
that allow architecture, urban context and landscape to be experienced in new ways.
Griffin Enright’s comprehensive approach to design depends on the simultaneous
blurring and exploitation of distinctions between inside/outside, built form/landscape,
site/urban context and theory/practice. The firm is the recipient of over thirty awards
for design excellence including the 2006 American Architecture Award from the
Chicago Athenaeum.

Firm Introduction:
Griffin Enright Architects fuses interests in innovation and experimentation with a
desire to explore cultural complexities relative to the built environment. Their versatile
practice includes projects ranging from large-scale commercial and residential com-
missions to furniture design and gallery installations. Their work moves beyond the tra-
ditional scope of architectural practice, underscoring connections with the surround-
ing urban fabric and landscape by reinforcing existing conditions or creating new ones
that allow architecture, urban context and landscape to be experienced in new ways.
Griffin Enright’s comprehensive approach to design depends on the simultaneous
blurring and exploitation of distinctions between inside/outside, built form/landscape,
site/urban context and theory/practice. The firm is the recipient of over thirty awards
for design excellence including the 2006 American Architecture Award from the
Chicago Athenaeum.
