Island Retreat Jon Kukk AIA Architects
THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTS: Editorial
At the Annual Retreat, we reviewed a list of all the events our chapter had sponsored or co-sponsored since the beginning of the year. We were pleased to see that our pace is at least one event per week, about half of which are co-sponsored in conjunction with other organizations, including the Chamber of SW Florida, FGCU and other design and planning organziations. One of the most exciting developments is our strategic partnership with FGCU to present the Annual Lecture Series in February. We’re confident that this will create a more robust program with larger attendance and a broader audience. Andrea Clark Brown will continue to chair the series. Another project for 2011 is our continued research and development for a forwardlooking architecture and design school for Southwest Florida. All AIA members are welcome to contribute to this project either by attending a meeting or emailing your suggestions.
The AIA Florida Small Firms Roundtable continues to gain momentum, and now has the Attention of AIA National. Roundtables are forming in all Florida chapters. Starting with a typical SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) analysis, each roundtable’s findings will rollup to the State and National committees. We are an all-volunteer chapter and always looking for help. In addition to chairing some of our annual programs, volunteers are welcome to assist with the newsletter, membership roster, sponsorship, advocacy and fact-finding on events affecting practice. If you have a special interest or suggestion, please let us know. Finally, a special thanks to our newsletter sponsor Henderson Franklin, whose support has been tremendous.

Notes from Equador...
Last Winter, Pam Mendieta our 2008 and 2009 Treasurer returned to her home in Equador. In addition to serving as Treasurer, Pam also coordinated the Al French Lecture Series. Pam shares these comments: “Although the volunteers always give their best effort, this will never be enough if it is not embraced by the community; YOU! Having everybody in the general community on board with the goals and ideas of the Chapter could be a challenge, but having the Architectural Colleagues, Students, Emerging Professionals helping and involved this should certainly be a reality! I encourage everybody to give some of your time and talents to better serve your community and help each other. Let’s keep working on becoming better people by helping others! GET INVOLVED!”
We thank Pam for her efforts, enthusiasm and optimism. (And hope she visits us again soon.)
“Education beyond the profession!”
Update: Safety Assessment Program Training In 2009, Local SAP Training was provided for AIASWFL by Michael Lingerfelt, AIA Vice President/Legislative & Regulatory Affairs AIAFL. 16 AIA Members became certified under this program. The AIA Local Relations team continues to advocate for the architectural profession at the local level. Currently a Memorandum of Understanding regarding architects and emergency response has been prepared between AIAFL and BOAF. AIA Florida (FLAIA) and the Building Officials Association Hurricane Katrina 2005 of Florida (BOAF) have finalized However, too often evaluations of the structural an agreement that will integrate architects damage are slow or poorly coordinated. into emergency response. While it may seem Michael Lingerfelt, AIA, vice president of FLAIA natural for architects to volunteer and assist and a member of the AIA National Disaster in disasters, Florida’s agreement is largely Assistance Advisory Group, believes the agreement benefits everyone. It was important unprecedented. The memorandum of understanding (MOU), to strengthen the relationship between the AIA signed by FLAIA Past President Steve Jernigan, and building officials, said Lingerfelt. Once our AIA,and BOAF President John O’Conner, CBO, members are well trained, there is a system in recognizes that in some disaster situations, place to mobilize that talent in an emergency the staff of building departments alone may to help citizens return to their homes and not be sufficient to properly, effectively, businesses as soon and safely as possible. and efficiently evaluate all of the structures Cooper Martin, manager of the AIA Disaster that have been impacted.Many jurisdictions Assistance Program, appreciates the efforts around the nation are effective at providing made by leaders of both organizations.

POSITIVE CHANGE THROUGH THE POWER OF DESIGN
Green Products, Green Risk?* by Mark Schultz**
Green design and green construction
continue to grow in the United States. As the green or sustainable design and construction trend increases in popularity architects continue to lead the way and confront issues raised by green design and construction. One issue facing architects involves the explosive growth of new products claiming to be green and promising to deliver green advantages like saving energy and being more environmentally friendly than traditional building products. Architects who take on the role not only of design but also of overseeing the construction phase of a project may be asked by clients to use some of these new green products. The use of new and unproven green products raises the question of who bears the risk of specifying experimental products, the architect or the client? Architects who are managing and overseeing the construction of a project need to be careful when asked to use new and untested products touting green benefits. The growth of green products has outpaced the ability to test and determine whether the claims manufacturers make are in fact borne out by the products in the field. Often times a new green product will not have been tested by an independent laboratory and the only information on the product’s performance characteristics will come from the manufacturer. Unlike more traditional building products, which have been tested and which have a history of use in the building industry, many new green products lack this history. Architects, while often familiar with more traditional building products through use in their projects through the years, are sometimes put in a position by their clients to use new and untested green products. Architects need to be careful when attempting to meet clients’ desires to use new green products that are untested and do not have a proven track record demonstrating the products’ performance in the construction industry. Architects can serve
their clients’ green interests and desires to use new unproven green products by obtaining informed consent from their clients. Informed consent in the use of new, untested green products is much like the use of informed consent in the medical field when a physician and patient agree to an experimental treatment or therapy. An architect can request from the client informed consent when the client seeks to have the architect use a new, untested green product. When approached by a client to use a new and untested green product the architect needs to discuss the use of this green product with the client. The architect does not need to shy away from using new, untested green products but the architect does need to ensure that the client is aware of the new nature of the product and the limited information about its performance. When considering using an new, untested green product the architect can analyze and share the manufacturer’s data about the product with the client. If appropriate, the architect can ask and obtain the consent of the client to conduct a mock test to determine if the new green product appears adequate to the task is it being considered to perform. Furthermore, the architect can provide full disclosure to the client that this is a new, untested green product and that the architect has not used it before and it not sure about how it will perform. Lastly, the architect should try to obtain a written informed consent to use a new, untested green product. Written informed consent will show that the client was made aware of the potential risks associated with a new, untested green product. Moreover, written informed consent will show that the client participated in making the decision to use this new, untested green product and that the client participated in the risk in trying to reap the potential rewards of this new, untested green product. By obtaining informed written consent, the architect can possibly prevent litigation and difficult times with the client down the road if the new, untested green product does not perform as expected.
Informed written consent would contain some of the following information. First a good informed written consent would inform the client of alternative methods and materials that could be used instead of the new, untested green product the client desires to use. Second, a good informed written consent would inform the client of the known risks and benefits of the new, untested green product, by providing any manufacturer’s data on the product. Third, a good informed written consent would clearly express that the use of the new, untested green product is the use of product that is new to the architect and has not been tested by the architect and thus is an experimental product. If the client wishes to proceed after signing a written informed consent then the architect can proceed knowing that the architect has taken steps to provide protection against a dispute down the road if the new, untested green product fails to perform to the client’s expectations. An architect does not need to shy away from or refuse to use a new, untested green product that a client desires to have used in a project. However, the architect, through the use of a written informed consent, can address the client’s desires to use such a product and have the client participate and share in the risk of using such products.■ *Disclosure Statement:

...Informed Consent* is recommended when a Client asks the Architect to use new or untested green products or construction methods… evaluations of all occupancies, Perform detailed evaluation of questionable buildings, or as assigned by the building department; and perform detailed evaluations of specified lifeline systems and facilities. In the event of an emergency SAP evaluators are contacted by an SAP Coordinator and requested to report to an identified staging area where evaluators are debriefed and deputized. The training goal for SAP Evaluators is that they are familiar with and understand the types of evaluation, how to use the forms, and the definitions of the placards. In our area it is best to refer to the Applied Technology Council, ATC 45 Field manual: safety evaluation of buildings after windstorms and floods and the Post-Disaster (SAP) Evaluator Training
the Post-Disaster (SAP) Evaluator Training Student Manual. The typical placards used for safety assessment are based on a threeplacard system:, Inspected (green), Limited Entry (yellow), and Unsafe (red). They are to be posted and form work is to be filed as required. ■

Midcentury Modern: A Tool for Learning AIA FL SW Plans Exhibition of Midcentury Modern Works for 2011 by Joyce Owens
Writing an architectural column for The NewsPress seemed like a golden opportunity to locally explore and identify the best structures, the best building methods and who was responsible for creating them — past and present. My aim has been to define what good design means in Southwest Florida in order to build more effectively and appropriately for the future. The current slowdown provides the design profession the opportunity to reflect on the recent boom and its repercussions on the community and the environment. And think about what comes next. When the Southwest Florida Museum of History approached the chapter about collaborating on a historical architectural exhibition, looking to the future seemed as relevant as looking to the past. The exhibition shouldn’t be limited to a passive look at the earliest buildings and their history but could be a tool to study those that have stood the test of time in this hot and humid climate. What can we learn from these earlier structures? Collectively, it was agreed to focus on the modern designs from the middle of the last century. An examination of this younger indigenous architecture may provide just the right insight into why and what buildings really work here. This joint exhibition, scheduled to open in January 2011, will celebrate midcentury modern architecture in Southwest Florida. Our architecture is being recognized internationally for its functional and stylized design tailored to its place — the sun, the rain and occasional extraordinary winds. The Lee County administration offices downtown, the Walker Guest House on Sanibel and Harbour Towers on West First Street all spring to mind. There is so much to learn and glean from these buildings. And now, we need your help.
Harbour Towers, Robert Matts Architect
Fort Myers High School, 1949 Gundersen Wilson Architects
The museum is looking for drawings, photos, even surviving architectural models of buildings, commercial, public or residential built from 1940-’60s (possibly into the ’70s). These buildings may still survive or regrettably have been demolished. Unaltered homes and public buildings are being sought for inclusion in the exhibition as original examples of this style. In addition, the museum will be documenting relevant existing structures for public records, even if not for the exhibition. In Florida, architects reinterpreted modernism to suit our subtropical climate, resulting in an unconventional approach to shelter specific to this area with its hot and wet climate. As we are aware, Sarasota and the west coast of South Florida is recognized as the birthplace of some of the finest examples of mid-century modern buildings in the world. Let’s celebrate what we have in our neighborhood. ■
Walker Guest House, Paul Rudolph Architect
WHAT IS MID CENTURY MODERN? Midcentury modern is a term used to define developments in furniture and product design as well as architecture and interior design from approximately 1945-’65. In architecture, midcentury modern is a reinterpretation of the modernist principles of the1920s and 1930s, which responded to their location, regarding materials and climate.

Historic Celebration In January, the City of Fort Myers held “The Anniversary”, a
historic celebration of the architectural, social and cultural significance of the downtown Fort Myers River District and the 20 years it has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. At this event, the local chapter of the American Institute of Architects hosted an exhibition of Downtown Master Plans. This event was a kick-off for a long term AIA FL SW initiative to document and catologue historically significant buildings of Southwest Florida. In the words of Herbert Swan, who developed the first city plan for Fort Myers, “If one circled the globe, he could not find a location for winter months more conducive to health and enjoyment than is to be found on the Western coast. First Street was one of the most attractive streets in the world”. Swan praised the use of the royal palm as a street tree claiming, “one of the greatest assets of Fort Myers is the luxuriant and tropical character of its vegetation shown alike in its gardens and its streets.” Swan placed a high priority on coherently connecting the city with a comprehensive traffic and railroad plan and suggested the acquisition of specific sites for more parks and parkways. He pushed for a major public recreational area on reclaimed riverside land with an integrated yacht basin and public pier, which would become vital to visitors and residents alike. The
plan also contained advice on schools, street cleaning, sanitation and a planting plan, and recommendations to regulate public buildings/ housing and zoning, including the establishment of a building department and a code specific to construction in South Florida. Prophetically, Swan warned attention should to be paid to its neglected river. “The Caloosahatchee River is, second to its tropical climate, Fort Myers’ greatest natural asset. Yet the city has up to the present practically turned its back upon the river as if it is ashamed of it,” he noted. His advice was to immediately prevent further pollution and begin the river park, cautioning against waiting too long. In 1986, The Fort Myers Downtown Plan, prepared for the new Downtown Redevelopment Agency, kick-started the renaissance of downtown after years of decline. Don Paight, executive director since the inception of the DRA (now referred to as the Fort Myers Redevelopment Agency), feels it was a vital plan that provided the catalyst for creating Centennial Park, the building of Harborside Event Center and encouraging the public acquisition of private land, ensuring city and county government offices would remain downtown. In 2003 the Duany Plater-Zyberk Plan seeks to re-establish an urban character downtown and, with the completion of the downtown streetscape project, has successfully brought the city visually back to its original splendor. Currently in the approval stage, another master plan spearheaded by Populous focuses on the area adjacent to the
river. It is this proposal that may finally bring to fruition the most urgent project of the Swan plan: the development of the riverfront, providing an opportunity for Fort Myers, in Swan’s words, “to become the most attractive city in South Florida, unrivaled in many respects.”■

The International Green Construction Code (IGCC) provides a comprehensive set of requirements intended to reduce the negative impact of buildings on the natural environment. It is a document which can be readily used by manufacturers, design professionals and contractors; but what sets it apart in the world of green building is that it was created with the intent to be administered by code officials and adopted by governmental units at any level as a tool to drive green building beyond the market segment that has been transformed by voluntary rating systems. It has been developed by the International Code Council (ICC) in association with cooperating sponsors ASTM International (ASTM) and the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Other organizations indicating their support include the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), producers of the LEED green building rating systems, and The Green Building Initiative (The GBI), producers of the Green Globes green building rating system. The IGCC was developed with the intent to be consistent and coordinated with the ICC family of Codes & Standards: the I Codes. It is applicable to the construction of high performance commercial buildings, structures, and systems,
