QUARTERLY

BULLETIN NOVEMBER 2013

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE Alek Zarifian, AIA, LEED AP

As we quickly embark on the last quarter of the year the call for nominations “Get Connected” message for the AIAPF 2014 Board of Directors has been sent out to you all, our AIAPF members. 2013 has been and still is a challenging year and the team perseveres to ensure a great beginning for the 2014 chapter leadership. I have great confidence in Nazanin Zarkesh, our 2013 Vice President/ Alek Zarifian, AIA President Elect, as a stout leader and I know that she’ll do a magnificent job directing our great chapter of Pasadena and Foothill. Last year, our Board of Directors made a promise to bring you programs that would add value to your practices here in our chapter area. These programs reminded us of why we love architecture and why we decided to become architects or pursue a career as an architect. We started our first program in June with the Spanish International architect Fernando Olba talking about “Architecture for the 99%.” His critical perspectives demonstrated how well-designed buildings serve as catalysts for urban transformation. In July, we Got on the Bus for an amazing architectural tour of Sierra Madre. The double decker bus was completely full, and the experience was unforgettable. Mark Gangi has been organizing this special program, “Get on the Bus”, since 2009 and I would like to recognize him for his continuous support of our chapter programs and events. On August 15th, we celebrated our ARE Mentor’s contribution and hard work at the Luggage Room. I extend my sincere gratitude to our instructors who have helped our candidates toward achieving their goals of licensure. Another excellent event occurred on August 22nd with the the “Social Media Marketing Made Simple,” held at the Maxwell House. At this event, AIAPF celebrated our liaison with the Producers Council by co-hosting a ‘mini Expo’ of vendors, who sponsored the event to great success. Tremendous thanks to Executive Director Zelda Wong and Public Member Julie Arcelay for facilitating this successful relationship with the Producers Council. September’s First Friday Forum featured an amazing presentation on the “Colorado Bridge Centenial / Historic Preservation in Action”. It included a panel discussion and a booksigning opportunity with Tavo Olmos for his book on the preservation process of the historic Colorado Bridge. What a wonderful way to pay tribute to one of the best historic landmarks of our beautiful city of Pasadena. The forum was graced by the presence of Pasadena Mayor Bogaard. On September 18th we hosted a program with the internationally renowned LA architect Mehrdad Yazdani of Cannon Design who spoke about the blurring boundaries between build-

ing environment and program. His talk examined the obscuring of program, design and approach through forces such as globalization, technology and social shifts. We saw this wonderful program as a precursor to our biggest event of the year, our Annual Design Awards. This year our Design Awards Gala was held at One Colorado, and I am happy to say we had excellent attendance. This was one of the best opportunities to show your support for excellent design, as we architects gathered with the citizens of our Chapter areas, and the cities that we represent. Now, after so much excitement, it won’t hurt to run a little reality check! As I mentioned earlier, 2013 has been a very challenging year and still continues as such. As with all other AIA chapters our, AIAPF relies heavily on sponsorship as a matter of survival and continuity of service to its members. The reality is that we all as professionals are all going through very tough times. Unfortunately, we must report that sponsorship levels have not been where they used to be. However, we have been able to keep our chapter afloat and still host significant, meaningful programs in these challenging times. My message to you, to all those who have an interest in the well being of our chapter and the practices that we strive to support, is that we are in this together, and we can use any help that we can possibly receive. Our goal for the next few months will be to help the finances of the chapter to improve to better levels, which can be easily achieved with increased participation. With my sincere gratitude to our chapter Leadership, Nazanin Zarkesh (Vice President), Dan Stein (Secretary), Chauncey Jones (Treasurer), Zelda Wong (Executive Director) and the entire Board of Directors, I invite you to all of our great Chapter programs for the rest of this year and, all the years to come. Thank you for your continued support, Alek Zarifian 2013 AIAPF President

a competitive advantage as a community over all the other cities I can think of.” Other members of the jury include: Deborah Weintraub, the Chief Deputy City Engineer of Los Angeles City’s Bureau of Engineering; Michael Lehrer, president of Lehrer Architects Los Angeles Partner; Peyton Hall, Managing Principal of the Historic Resources Group; and Roger Owen Cocke, an emeritus of the American Institute of Architects. Zarifian described architects as the unknown soldiers who fight a war for humanity alone into the late hours of the night that has inspired people for centuries and will inspire people for centuries to come. “Cultures are cultivated and created by the hands of the artists and architects,” Zarifian said, “That’s what were celebrating today, the life of an architect as a designer who tries to spend his life searching for the best solution. By showing up you show the joy architecture brings to you and to us as a community and as a nation.”

The following is an article on the recent 2013 AIAPF Design Awards, re-published with permission from PasadenaNow, with photography by Rachel Young.

That is precisely what the winners of the awards set about doing. At the event, the over 100 guests received one vote to pick the ultimate favorite for the People’s choice. A five-member jury analyzed the 35 entries for the eight categories to choose the other winners in three tiers, honor being the highest tier followed by merit and then citation awards. The People’s Choice award and the Craftsman Award both went to Douglas S. Ewing, FAIA for his creation Shining Mountain Guest Ranch Lodge. Ewing exemplified extreme craft in the art of architecture, capturing a honed and consistent execution of a beautiful residence, using the best craftsmen from within 80 miles of the building. “It’s a serious old world green building and that’s what I love about it,” Ewing said. “It’s atypical to anything architects do today. But the fact is that building is made out of real trees that died in the Yellowstone fire, rocks that were collected, half of them by myself, less than 300 yards from the spot the building was built. And [the client] got the roofing material off of two old bridges in Vermont

“Our profession of architecture is about optimism, about hope. Without hope, life doesn’t exist, and the same with architecture, without hope architecture doesn’t exist. We have to remind people by our buildings how great we are and how amazing we are as human beings,” AIAPF President Alek Zarifian said in a stirring speech about why design matters even in the midst of a crisis with Syria and a shutdown government. Architects set the stage for everyday living, influencing how a city like Pasadena views itself and carries itself about everyday business, as well as how it will be remembered in the future. Master of Ceremonies Professor Steven Lewis quoted, “Buildings that we do for our society should be contemporary of our time… such that they will become mirrors of who we are as a society, so that 100 years from now, when people look back at what we left behind, they see who we were as a society, the greatness we had, that’s our task.”

was incredibly captivating,” Juror Michael Lehrer said about the building. The second Savings by Design Award was awarded to Osborn Architects Timothy Ballard for the Playa Vista Elementary School, which is on track to be a LEED platinum building, geothermal and equipped with other sustainable design features. Osborn Architects Timothy Ballard also received a Merit Award. The second Merit Award went to John Cambianica of CBA Partnership Architects for renovation project of Local 728. Recipients of citation awards included: Sunglass House by Peter Tolkien, AIA; Quan Residence by Douglas S. Ewing, FAIA; Evergreen Villa’s Greenhouse Skilled Nursing Prototype by Douglas S. Ewing; Furnace Creek Visitor Center by James McLane, AIA, with Architectural Resources Group; and Interior of Jacobs Engineering by Richard Keating, FAIA, Jacobs Corporate Headquarters. For many of the architects, design is about creating livable space that can help students learn better, provide people comfort in their homes and efficiently use space and energy. […]

that were condemned by the highway department. It was just amazing how this building came together.” […] The grand prize Honor Awards both fell in the category of Institutional / Educational. Stephen Farneth, FAIA, of the Architectural Resources Group, was awarded for the Linde + Robinson Lab for Global Environmental Science built at California Institute of Technical. The lab was the first of its unique kind on the campus to be LEED Platinum certified. Farneth was also awarded a Savings by Design Award, recognizing the sustainability of the building. Savings by Design is a state-wide offered program by California utilities, available for new construction projects encouraging sustainable design construction and energy efficiency. The second Honor award went to Modesto Junior College Student Services Building by Ann Knudsen, AIA Perkins + Will. “It was both fresh and classical. Energetic and quite tranquil at the same time.

Two students also received citation awards for their projects: fourth year undergraduate design studio student Chris Norton Riley won for his Gallery for Danish and International Photography, and first-year Hovhanes Balyan was awarded for his Hotel Plathora. For the first time in several years, the awards were ‘brought home’ to reflect architecture in the Foothills rather than big projects by larger firms in far off places. This was the first time the awards were not announced beforehand; everyone waited in anticipation evening. One of the jurors, Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard, reminded the architects that it was not that long ago that the buildings in Old Pasadena were regarded as irrelevant to Pasadena’s future, yet thirty years later the buildings play a critical role. “Architecture and history and design have a critical role in creating what we know and love as the city of Pasadena,” Bogaard said. “I express gratitude for the commitment you make in maintaining Pasadena as a unique community, one that has a very special sense of place and gives us

AIACC Helps Change L.A. County A-E Selection Criteria AIACC recently made a significant contribution to help smaller A-E firms win public projects.

Holly Cross Chapel

Rostom Voskanian

In the early 80’s, I introduced Uncle Rostom to my late great professor, Panos Koulermos, at which moment they instantly became friends. Their shared interest in architecture and education made them inseparable. Panos, an internationally renowned architect and professor, after seeing Rostom’s Holly Cross Chapel said, “Without a doubt, this is one of the best pieces of architecture that I have seen for a long time”. Unfortunately, in the process of attempting to help him publish the project in A+U magazine, Panos’ life was cut short, and we lost him on September 26th in 1999. These are two of my most beloved mentors whose extensive teachings and positive impressions have allowed me continue my life as an architect with pride and joy. What I’ve learned from them continues to guide and inspire me to move forward, always with the hope for a better future for our profession. My fellow members of AIAPF, please let the inspirations of your own mentors guide you and help you contribute to your Chapter and our profession as a whole. Rostom Voskanian received an honorary recognition by his students of Tehran University who joined him in Yerevan, Armenia in September 2006. In September 2009 he received an Honorary Doctorate Degree from University of Yerevan and was also honored by the School of Fine Arts of University of Tehran. Let us remember and honor our great mentors while they are around so that we can celebrate their lifetime achievement with them. Culture emerges from the hearts, souls and hands of the artists. Our mentors are the ones who ensure its continuity, not because they are obligated to, but because they care and understand its vitality to the advancement of human kind. Rostom passed away on August 11th 2013 at 8:30 am in Los Angeles. He was eighty one years old.

During this time of great uncertainty and trepidation, our profession may find hope in the remembrance of one of our most faithful and dedicated masters, the late Rostom Voskanian. I can attest to the positive impact of a mentor’s teachings throughout time. He was my great uncle, a caring individual who shaped and inspired my life, both as a person and as an architect. He was loved and respected by thousands of his students to whom he nurtured over the span of twenty two years at Tehran University. He had a keen connection with the younger generations shown through his support of their intellectual, academic and personal wellbeing. He was a true mentor to his students and nothing short of a genuine friend. Rostom Voskanian was born in Tabriz, Iran in 1932. He received his high school diploma in Tehran and gained his Master’s Degree in Architecture from University of Tehran when he was awarded a scholarship to continue his studies at “Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts” of Paris. After graduating from “Beaux Arts” in 1964, he returned to Tehran. During 1964-86, he lectured at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Tehran. He was the recipient of many awards and scholarships including the first prize from Paris University. In 1957, he received the Golden Medal from Biennale of Fine Arts of Tehran. Beside his architectural work, he was also an accomplished painter and held many art exhibitions. Some of his main architectural works were the “Ararat Cultural and Sports Complex” in Tehran (1975-78), a traditional sport center (Zoorkhaneh) in Tehran (1983), Armenian Community Center in Tehran (1966), Holly Cross Chapel in the territory of “Ararat Cultural and Sports Complex” (1985-87) and renovation of St. Taddeus Monestary in Iran’s province of Western Azerbaijan.

LCDG is submitting qualifications for two L.A. County As-Needed solicitations. For each solicitation, the County will issue up to ten $1 million contracts for miscellaLance Bird neous County projects, for which they had a similar request about nine months ago. Staff evaluated and recommended ten teams for each solicitation to the Board of Supervisors. The Board “pushed back,” saying there was only one “small” firm on the list. So the solicitations were issued again in July with an additional form. The form required each prime to certify if their firm was “Small” (less than 100 employees). And I understood the County’s intent was to award six of the ten contracts to small firms.

EMERGING PROFESSIONALS Tony Hambarchian, Assoc. AIA, LEED AP+

The Emerging Professionals Program of AIA Pasadena & Foothill Chapter closed out its ARE Seminar Series with a dinner gathering at the Luggage Room in Del Mar Station in August. The event gave our associate members the opportunity to network with industry professionals ranging from Architects, Engineers, Project Managers, and Contractors. In addition to the diverse group of individuals that participated, we also had the pleasure of spending the evening with our specials guests from Pasadena Community Gardens. About two years ago on Sept. 9, 2011, our chapter’s Citizen Architect Committee began a collaborative relationship with Pasadena Community Gardens. We embarked on a journey to transform an abandoned lot at 721 S. Pasadena Ave. into an edible community garden. We reflect proudly upon our support of such public events: The campaign kickoff at John Muir High School, the Prop. 84 Grant Submittal and Site Tour, as well as the Groundbreaking and Shovel Ceremony, as attended by Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard, Councilperson Steve Madison, and our Director of Citizen Architects, Mark Gangi, AIA. As the garden continues to move forward towards its Grand Opening, the Citizen Architect Committee and Emerging Professionals Program of AIA Pasadena & Foothill Chapter are proud to continue their support of this exciting project and we encourage our members to get involved. Pasadena Community Gardens hosted a work day for the Pasadena community on September 7 to build the second phase of its garden beds, which was a great success. If you are interested in getting involved contact Tony Hambarchian at thambarchian@ gmail.com or sign up at http://pasadenacommunitygardens.org/.

I like where the County is heading, but an architectural or engineering firm approaching 100 employees is not small. SBA defines a small business concern as one that is independently owned and operated, is organized for profit, and is not dominant in its field. Depending on the industry, size standard eligibility is based on the average number of employees for the preceding twelve months or on sales volume averaged over a three-year period. Examples of SBA general size standards include the following. Services: Annual receipts may not exceed $2.5 to $21.5 million, depending on the particular service being provided. Another consideration was the California DGS and their definition of a microbusiness: “A small business will automatically be designated as a microbusiness if gross annual receipts are less than $3,500,000; or the small business is a manufacturer with 25 or fewer employees.” At an architectural firm average of $86,000 net revenue/employee, this equals 41 persons. In a number of references within AIA publications, I’ve seen the following definitions: Small Firm – sole proprietorship to 10 employees Medium Firm – 10-50 Large Firm – 50-100 XL Firm – 100+ I called AIA CC for industry evidence of what is considered “small.” Nicki Dennis Stephens found the statistics we needed in a recent AIA economic report called the “The Business of Architecture.” The following quotes describe the norm for architectural firms: “…the average number of payroll employees at a typical firm increased from 10.0 in 2005 to 10.3 in 2008 before decreasing to 8.8 in 2011. Currently, according to AIA estimates, almost a quarter of architecture firms nationally are sole practitioners and more than 60 percent have fewer than five employees on their payrolls. In contrast, only 1.4 percent of offices have 100 or more employees.” I forwarded the stats to the County with a request to reconsider their size criteria. This made the case, successfully persuading the County bureaucracy to change their form and reissue it. The revised form defines “Small” as 25 employees or less.” This is a huge success for AIA and our smaller member firms. Thanks to Nicki and AIA for helping change the rules at L.A. County!

Lance’s firm, LCDG, has moved to largely public work in response to the 5-6 year economic downturn. Several of their contracts are on-call, as-needed type. Competition is fierce to win these jobs. Large firms dominate if the selection criteria does not support smaller firms.

SEED FOUNDERS TAKE ACTION

1,900 that has received over 300 applications for project certification. In addition, SEED Awards recognize best practices in the realm of Public Interest Design. Global certifications that create socially responsible industry standards were presented by Michael Conroy, Ph.D., an economist and professor. These standards, including the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Fair Trade standards, have yielded measurable market transformation in the commercial sector. As with FSC and Fair Trade, the SEED metrics and principles are relevant domestically, and as Hermilo Salas, Ph.D., of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) noted, there is global relevancy as well. A global consciousness as it relates to equitable development is essential for social justice everywhere. With global needs for equitable design and development, SEED has implications beyond the United States. The Founders’ Day convening and the creation of an Advisory Board signal the growing importance of social, economic, and environmental design equity in the built environment. The Advisory Board will look to increase SEED’s influence beyond the existing community-design sector, and extend membership to include citizens, policy makers, corporations and beyond. The next phase of SEED will look to establish community-driven design as the rule, and not the exception.”

Steve Lewis, AIA As many of our AIAPF members continue to regroup in the wake of the biggest economic downturn of our lifetimes, some are questioning whether our skills and talents are needed, or appreciated for the value that we bring to projects. Truthfully, we all must look inward to reaffirm the importance of our in shaping the built environment. But we must also seek to define a new value-proposition that clearly establishes architects as irreplaceable Steve Lewis, AIA when it comes to working with stakeholders, whether they be corporate or community-based. One endeavor that holds great promise for advancing what is being heralded as the “Public Interest Design” movement is the SEED Network. While some may fail to see the relevance or importance of such a pursuit in relation to the traditional practice, others – in particular, our emerging professionals – have a drive to work on behalf of individuals, organizations, and communities that have long existed without the benefits of working with an architect. I encourage the AIAPF membership to take some time and read

SEED Founders Take Action

DISASTER PREPAREDNESS & RESILIENCY

“The SEED founders met in July at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, hosted by the Loeb Fellowship, to imagine and plan the next steps in a movement to include measures of social impact in the planning, design, and evaluation of sustainable development projects. By the end of the day-long session, the SEED group had recruited new volunteers to review SEED certification applications, committed to explore collaboration with other organizations including the U.S. Green Building Council to strengthen social performance metrics, and formed an interim Advisory Board composed of many of the nation’s leading scholars and practitioners of Public Interest Design (PID). The SEED Advisory Board is tasked with steering the organization into a new, permanent governance structure and enhancing SEED’s overall capacity to serve as an important resource for PID practitioners and communities around the globe. Cambridge, MA – July 27th, 2013 – Twenty five community design educators and practitioners gathered at the Harvard Graduate School of Design to discuss the past, present, and future of SEED (Social Economic Environmental Design). SEED, whose mission is to advance the right of every person to live in a socially, economically and environmentally healthy community, is an organized network and process within the larger community-driven design movement. Participants reviewed the impact of the 1,900 member group, since its inception in 2005. This Founders’ Day convening looked to increase impact, to build a stronger base, and to scale community-driven design to a wider, global audience. Bryan Bell, Founder and Executive Director of Design Corps, explained that over the course of eight years, SEED has grown to become a network with a pledged membership of over

INMEMORIAM:RANDELLMAKINSON

MANY THANKS TO OUR GENEROUS SPONSORS:

Allison Engel

Randell Makinson

Randell Makinson ’56, for decades the acknowledged expert on the work of architects Charles and Henry Greene, died of cancer on Aug. 13 in Pasadena, Calif. He was 81. Makinson, who graduated from the USC School of Architecture, returned to the university in 1958 and stayed until 1992. He was a member of the architecture faculty and then director of The Gamble House, the 1908 Greene & Greene masterpiece that he helped save from demolition at a time when the Greenes’ work was relatively unknown. Upon retirement, Makinson was given the title of director emeritus. Makinson championed the house and its significance to the city of Pasadena and the School of Architecture, and it was deeded to both by Gamble family heirs in 1966. Under Makinson’s 26-year directorship, The Gamble House became an international model for authentic architectural sites, containing nearly all of its original, architect-designed furnishings. Makinson also developed a model volunteer organization, made the house accessible to the public and scholars, and positioned the house and its operations to be economically independent. The Makinson model has been used on properties in Chicago, Buffalo, N.Y., New York City, Seattle and other American cities as well as in Scotland and Japan. Another initiative undertaken by Makinson was the establishment of The Huntington Library’s permanent Greene and Greene Exhibit and Archives. He also worked on important arts and crafts and architecture exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Cleveland Museum of Art, among others. He authored six books on the Greene brothers and their architecture, as well as chapters in other books and publications. His books include A Guide to the Work of Greene and Greene (1974); Greene & Greene: Architecture as a Fine Art (1977); Greene & Greene: Furniture and Related Designs (1979); Greene & Greene: The Passion and the Legacy (1998); Greene & Greene: The Blacker House (2000), which he wrote with photographer Thomas Heinz and actor Brad Pitt; and Greene & Greene: Creating a Style (2004), with Heinz. His awards included an honorary American Institute of Architects (AIA) designation in the late 1990s, an honorary Millennium Recognition Design Award from the Pasadena/Foothill chapter of the AIA, a key to the city of Pasadena in 1992 and a Distinguished Alumnus Award from the USC Architectural Guild in 1997. Makinson was born on June 29, 1932, in Los Angeles and was raised in Glendale, Calif. He is survived by a sister, several cousins, a niece and a nephew, seven great-nieces and greatnephews, and several godchildren. In lieu of flowers, donations are suggested in his name to The Gamble House, 4 Westmoreland Place, Pasadena, Calif., 91103. http://news.usc.edu/#!/article/53940/in-memoriam-randell-makinson-81/
