Rise to the Lifecycle Building Challenge! Summary It’s all about waste. And the Lifecycle Building Challenge is looking for your ideas, designs, and projects for lightening the load that architecture and building has on Earth’s resources and landfills. LBC is an awards program that recognizes constructed and unbuilt projects that demonstrate the goals of lifecycle design and construction. Registration for the program opens in March, and entries are due in August. The AIA is a partner in LBC, which is supported by the Environmental Protection Agency, with which the Institute signed a memorandum of understanding in 2006 to support recycling efforts and improve the environmental performance of buildings. EPA has a number of issues that architects should keep in mind when designing to reduce waste. Specifically, targets call for diverting or reducing construction and demolition waste to preserve land, reduce water generation, and increase recycling. The goal, which is part of the EPA’s article continued on page 7

PRESIDENT’S ANNUAL REPORT TO MEMBERSHIP This year the AIA Dayton Chapter has continued its professional and community involvement for the benefit of its membership and for the betterment of the community in which we live and work. The following are just the highlights from this year’s Chapter activities. MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS: As an added value to the membership, this year we were able to offer our Architecture Basics and Bagels (ABB) Morning Seminar series free of charge to our membership. In addition to offering a variety of meeting topics, the ABB seminars have provided over 15 hours of continuing education credit. In addition when combined with our other seminars, programs, building tours and joint meetings, the total continuing education credit for attending AIA Dayton events exceeded 40 hours of learning units! The Chapter sponsored three building tours this year; DayBreak Facility, CareSource Office Tower and Aileron Campus offering a chance for our membership to experience a full range of building types and construction methods from renovation, new construction and implementation of a campus wide plan. The Chapter provided networking opportunities with allied professional organizations at joint meetings and seminars with SAME during the BIM seminar at Wright-Patterson AFB, with CSI at the Snyder Block & Brick Plant Tour and with SEGD at the Aileron campus tour. During 2008 close to 1,000 people attended AIA Dayton events! MEMBERSHIP OUTREACH In August around 100 golfers attended the AIA Dayton Golf Outing at Sugar Valley Country Club in Bellbrook, Ohio. The outing provided the members of AIA Dayton and its sponsors and allied professionals a chance to spend the afternoon together enjoying a round of golf along with good food, drink and fun! The Golf Committee headed by Diana Conboy, AIA should be recognized for all its hard work associated with this event. Even though the attendance was down this year, we still raised $10,000 for the Chapter some of these proceeds will be given to the AIA Dayton Scholarship Fund on behalf the Chapter. Through support of this event, $8,000 in scholarships was given this year to area high school and college students. The AIA Dayton Design Awards program took place at the Wintergarden located in the Benjamin & Marian Schuster Center on Thursday, November 20, 2008. A total of 135 AIA Dayton members, guests, clients and sponsors celebrated design excellent and to honor posthumously the 2008 Recipient of the Architecture Advocacy Award – Benjamin Kline, former architectural columnist and reporter for Dayton Daily News. The Design Awards Jury for this year’s program included Jim Dalton, FAIA of Kent State University, Bill Browne, AIA of Ratio Architects and Jonathan Hess, AIA of Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf Architects. Please see the pictures of the Design Awards event in this issue of the Archirtrave and check our website; http://www.aiadayton.org for all of the award winners and projects submitted for this year’s program. Our annual Sponsor Appreciation Dinner has held again at Siebenthaler Company’s Cabin in Beavercreek. Over 50 Sponsors and AIA Dayton members enjoyed an evening of food and fellowship. Mark Ruetschle, AIA and Matt Franklin, AIA joined me in presenting certificates of appreciation to our Chapter’s sponsors for 2008. Through Mark’s and Matt’s hard work we were able to increase chapter sponsorship this year. COMMUNITY OUTREACH CANstruction was held at the Dayton Art Institute during the Oktoberfest Weekend and featured teams from InterbrandDesign Forum, Miami University and a combined team from LJB and the CANstruction Committee Members who built structures out of canned foods. These teams designed and planned the “Can You Play” themed structures with a total of 14,038 lbs of food. In addition to donating the canned foods used in the building of the structures, a check for $9,000 was given to The Food Bank of Dayton to further help their organization. Special thanks to the CANstruction Committee, Wende Morgan-Elliott, AIA and Julie Sabourin, AIA for their hard work and dedication to this project. article continued on page 3

DOWNTOWN DAYTON STRATEGIC REUSE PLAN: The Downtown Dayton Partnership and members of the AIA Dayton Chapter are teaming up for a very important project –a study of the potential strategic reuse of some key buildings in downtown Dayton. As you know, downtown has numerous buildings that are currently underutilized and are prime for potential redevelopment. Through a collaborative effort, we are re-imagining some of these architecturally-significant and strategically important buildings and attempt to determine potential reuses for them. This past October a press conference was held with the City of Dayton, Downtown Dayton partnership and AIA Dayton to announce the buildings and firms participating in the building reuse study. The participating firms and buildings are as follows: BUILDINGS 18-20 S. Jefferson Building 146 E. Third Street 25 S. Main Street KeyBank Building Price Stores Building Transportation Center Walker Building David Building, 115 E. Third St. Leigh Building Merchants Row, Third Street

ARCHITECTURE FIRM Matrix Architects Greg Lauterbach Architects Jeff Wray Architects Levin Porter Associates Earl Reeder Architects Rogero Buckman Architects The Architectural Group John Poe Architects Lorenz & Williams App Architecture

In early 2009 these projects will be presented to the Partnership, City and community as our gift back to the community. LEARNING BY DESIGN Dan McNulty, Associate AIA, and his committee should be congratulated for all their hard work associated with this program this summer. Over forty 4th and 5th grade students spent the week learning what being an Architect is all about through classroom sessions, architect’s office tours and hands-on projects. In addition, Dan needs to be recognized for his capable handling of last minute changes in this program which were beyond his control. STUDENT DESIGN PROGRAM This program is designed for college-bound high school students, grades 9 through 12, interested in art, architecture, or design. This year’s program was to design an Urban Outfitter’s Center, located within Wegerzyn Gardens MetroParks, just north of downtown Dayton. Assisting with the design review sessions were nine architecture students from the AIAS Student Chapter of Miami University. Thirty-four students registered with AIA Dayton as participants and 23 students completed projects which were presented to the community at the awards ceremony on April 10th. The program was chaired by Dan McNulty, Associate AIA, and we received additional assistance from Wegerzyn. AIA DAYTON SCHOLARSHIP FUND This year, thanks to AIA National matching funds and additional contributions from AIA Dayton, we were able to award three graduating seniors in high school and two college students a total of $8000 in scholarship assistance. In three short years we have been able to increase the amount of scholarships awarded for this program from one $1,000 scholarship to five scholarship totaling $8,000. For this funding to continue we need the support of AIA Dayton members. Last year a small number of AIA Dayton members contributed to this fund and if the AIA National matching fund program is discontinued or reduced, our current trend in scholarship awards can not continue. Soon the AIA Dayton Scholarship Committee will be starting a fund raising campaign to increase the endowment from its current $40,000 balance to $100,000 by 2010. This campaign will include firm as well as individual member contributions and we hope all members will donate and see the benefits of helping student succeed as architects. article continued on page 4

AREAS WE NEED TO IMPROVE UPON AIA OHIO PAC Fund: “If you are not at the TABLE, then you are on the MENU!” It is sad, but it is true, our profession does not always see the need to be actively involved in politics. The reality is decisions affecting our profession revolve to a great degree around politics and as a profession we need to have the funds to back up our voices and agenda. Our Chapter was tasked with raising $2,500 for the AIA Ohio PAC and to date just a little over $1,000 was raised. It’s not too late to help this year and please contact either Alan Moody, AIA or myself to learn how you can have a voice in future decision affecting our profession. RECOGNITIONS TO OUT GOING BOARD MEMBERS I would like to thank outgoing board members for their service to the Chapter as follows: Mark Ruetschle, AIA: As Director, Mark has been instrumental in raising the Chapter’s sponsorship in each of his years as chairman of this committee. I hope Matt Franklin, AIA and Fernando Oseguera, AIA continue with the success Mark has begun with our sponsors. Dan McNulty, Associate AIA: As Associate Director, Dan has been instrumental in the improvement and the success each year of the Student Design Program, and this year for starting the Learning by Design program. Will Kaly, AIA: As President in 2007, Will undertook the challenge of the Chapter’s AIA 150 Program; “A Blueprint for Historic South Park.” This program required Will to go beyond the call to duty and the end result is a model program that has received recognition from AIA National. The Chapter owes a great deal of thanks for Will’s leadership these past few years on the Board of AIA Dayton. I look forward to next year as Past President and Chair of the AIA Dayton Golf Outing and helping 2009 AIA Dayton President Tim Bement have a successful and active year as AIA Dayton President! J.

Incoming 2009 President’s Message Tim Bement, AIA

Happy New Year to All! First, I have to congratulate Bill Williams for his excellent leadership as 2008 AIA Dayton President. From the informative building tours and programs, fun-filled Dayton Dragons outing to the distinguished Design Awards at the Schuster Center Wintergarden, Bill’s enthusiasm and love of the profession made every event more enjoyable! Also, I cannot fail to mention that Bill’s University of Florida Gators did it yet again this year! If you notice a special glow emanating from the offices of Levin Porter Associates, (it could be my lovely wife, Ami) but most definitely that would be Bill, a beaming alum basking in his alma mater’s success! So, what’s planned for 2009? Actually, many of the same type of great programs that Bill Williams put together last year will continue on. However, changes are happening all around us and our profession must stay ahead of the “wave” in order to remain relevant. On Tuesday, January 27, I invite you to join me and other Board members for appetizers and cold beverages at Brixx Ice Company for a General Meeting. At this informal event, we would like to talk about how to get the architecture profession more involved with the community to further reinforce that architects can be the catalysts for change! The Board has discussed participating in the next downtown Urban Nights on May 15, 2009 and building upon this each year, culminating in a major event in 2011 during the AIA Ohio Convention to be held in Dayton. Bring your ideas and appetites and a willingness to get involved! I am particularly talking to the Associate Members of the Chapter. We need your fresh ideas and unique perspectives! Speaking of getting involved, November 2009 will be the bi-annual Focus on Design Gala which gives us the opportunity to bring a cutting-edge architecture-related professional to Dayton. The event will take place at a prominent public venue in the Dayton area. The committee is now forming, so if you would like to help influence who that speaker will be and get some experience in organizing an event, please let me know! Our first Committee meeting will be scheduled for mid February, 2009. I look forward to seeing you at our functions this year! If you would like to contact me, please call me at App Architecture at (937)836-8898 or email (tim.bement@app-arch.com). Best Wishes for the New Year, Tim Bement, AIA 2009 AIA Dayton President

strategic plan, is to increase reuse and recycling of construction and demolition debris by 6 percent over 2003 levels by the year 2011. What distinguishes architecture that promotes lifecycle building and reduces waste? LBC describes it as “designing buildings to facilitate disassembly and material reuse to minimize waste, energy consumption, and associated greenhouse gas emissions.” It also recognizes design for disassembly and deconstruction, to the extent that buildings constructed for today are seen as stockpiles of materials and resources for construction in the future. This is a fairly radical way of looking at the built environment. It requires the architect to consider the design of not only the current building, but the one after, and the one after that. What objectives should the architect strive for in lifecycle design? LBC offers a number of targets. Design should encourage local building material reuse (so that disassembly and reconstruction does not require transporting materials long distances). Architects should also think about maximum material recovery, in terms of how the building comes apart after assembly, allowing materials to be extracted efficiently. Reducing embodied energy and greenhouse gas emissions is another goal, as is decreasing environmental and economic costs. If you are still getting up to speed on how to accomplish these goals, the LBC Web site offers a great resource page that will point you in the right direction for case studies, reports, examples, and projects. Wide range of good ideas The LBC awards program encourages projects submitted by persons involved in the design and construction of architecture, recycling, building product design, and other aspects of creating the built environment. Last year’s winners reflect the wide spectrum of work that LBC recognizes. Group 41 Architects won for its design of a housing system based on the reuse of shipping containers. Kieran Timberlake’s Loblolly House won for its inventive use of materials that can easily be unbolted, disassembled, and inserted back into the construction material stream for future projects. Architecture students at the University of Illinois won for their design of a prefabricated and demountable “Transient Awareness Center” to provide information to local residents. Busby Perkins + Will won for its assessment study of a 1960 university building to determine how to disassemble the building and reuse its materials. For more information, visit www.aia.org.

ArchiPAC Roundup Submitted by Jane Treiber ArchiPAC Roundup Dayton Area Architects Turn Out to Support Congressman On Tuesday, October 28, Dayton, Ohio-area architects joined together with ArchiPAC, the AIA’s federal political action committee, to support Congressman Mike Turner (R-OH).

“Since Congressman Turner began his service in the House, he has continued to be an advocate for many of the issues that matter most to architects,” says Welker. “As a result of his experience as Mayor of Dayton, he understands the task of urban economic development better than most, and the fact that he is well respected by architects and the public from ‘both sides of the aisle’ contributes to his success in pushing these issues. We have high hopes for his continued support of our initiatives in the next session of Congress.” The Government Relations team congratulates AIA Dayton on this successful event and looks forward to supporting other components in similar efforts to further strengthen their relationship with legislators at the local, state, and national level.

From left: AIA Ohio President Terry Welker, AIA; Representative Mike Turner; and AIA Dayton President Bill Williams, AIA On Election Day, Turner won his fourth term representing Ohio’s Third Congressional District, located in the southwest area of the state. Before coming to Congress, Turner served as a two-term mayor of the City of Dayton. During his tenure, he formed a relationship with AIA Dayton working on neighborhood revitalization and historic preservation. In Congress, Turner has supported funding for brownfield property redevelopment. He is also a founder and co-chair of the House Historic Preservation Caucus and the chair of the House Republican Policy Committee’s task force on Urban Revitalization. Organized by AIA Ohio President Terry Welker, AIA, the event, attended by nearly 20 members of the local design and construction industry, reinforced the Dayton component’s strong and lasting relationship with Turner.

New Sustainable Design Continuing Education Requirement Submitted By Jane Treiber

New Sustainable Design Continuing Education Requirement Continuing education on sustainable design gains importance for AIA architects starting in January 2009. Four of the required total of 18 learning units (LUs) must focus on sustainable design as a prerequisite for annual membership renewal from 2010 through 2012. The four units will also be applied to the total of eight units needed for health, safety, and welfare (HSW) subjects. Architects need a steady stream of resources to be leaders in sustainable design in the communities in which they work. By modifying the AIA/CES requirements and expanding the sustainable learning opportunities, the Institute gives members the deepening knowledge and practical tools to “Walk the Walk” of sustainability. Learn more about the new continuing education requirement at www.aia.org/ ces_sustainabledesignrequirements

Miami University AIAS Chapter Report Submitted by Brett Roeth, President, Miami University AIAS

MIAMI UNIVERSITY AIAS CHAPTER REPORT I would like to take this opportunity to let the members of AIA Dayton know what the Miami University AlAS chapter has accomplished since summer 2008. After a year of rebuilding, our chapter was honored at the summer 2008 Grassroots conference for our impressive increase in membership and activity. Most notably, Taryn Nye, a graduate student who acted as a Co-President last year, was awarded the AlAS National Community Service Award. This award was given to Taryn in recognition of her incredible work with Tawna Leap, a Miami alumna. Taryn designed and administered the construction of a house for Tawna’s daughter, Lianna, who was born with quadriplegic mixed-type cerebral palsy. Taryn designed the house to accommodate the very specific needs of Lianna and her family. Furthermore, she went above and beyond her responsibilities as a designer to engage in a personal relationship with Tawna and Lianna. We are building upon last year’s success for many other events, as well. In October, we participated in the 2008 Canstruction competition for the second year. Also, we are hosting our annual Beaux Arts Ball in November, at Zaha Hadid’s Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center. This event, one of our most successful, has attracted over 100 students this year, and this year is the first time we have hosted the Ball in such a prominent venue. FORUM, the annual conference of the AlAS, was held in Denver in December, with a focus on sustainability and energy efficiency. I ran for the office of 2009-2010 National Vice President, and was fortunate to be elected. In the spring, the members of our AlAS chapter will again volunteer during the AlA Dayton Art in Architecture Student Design Competition. We are also planning a trip to Seattle in February, to give students the opportunity to meet with potential employers and experience the architecture of Seattle. Also, on February 26, we are bringing Doug Farr, author of Sustainable Urbanism, to speak at Miami. Doug is the principal of Farr Associates, a Chicago architecture and planning firm that focuses on sustainable development. We invite you to attend. As you know, the financial crises of recent months have put the country in a dire situation, and the effects have trickled down to nearly every individual. Miami University has been especially affected, and as a result, much of the funding for student activities and departmental functions is no longer available. Associated Student Government and the Department of Architecture and Interior Design, our two primary sources of funding, are unable to support our activities this year. However, the AlAS has several exciting events planned, and we hope that we will still be able to enact our plans. We have already had some success with fundraising initiatives, and we have several more planned. The success of our AlAS chapter could not be possible without the continued support of AlA Dayton. For 2009, AlA Dayton doubled its donation to our AIAS chapter, for which we are grateful. I am looking forward to working with the new AIA Dayton leadership in 2009.
