Why give the award to Robert

When making the announcement on the decision to honor Robert Ivy with the Noel Polk award, the Institute’s president, Nancy LaForge mentioned that the award fetes artists and art patrons. And Robert Ivy has proven himself an artist with a Midas touch, passionately transforming everything he touches. As an author, editor, a practicing architect, and a commentator on international architecture no one can doubt Robert’s talents nor underrate his achievements in these areas.

Note that when he worked as the editor-in-chief for the McGraw-Hill’s Architectural Record, Robert helped reshape and broaden its international readership. By the time he left the publisher, Architecture Record was the most read architectural journal worldwide. Robert Ivy even helped the journal transcend language barriers by pioneering the establishment of the publisher’s branch in China that preceded the translation of the journal into Mandarin. His efforts during the time helped expose architecture to millions of people worldwide.

When he jumped ship from the publisher to head the American Institute of Architects (AIA), Robert Ivy brought the Midas touch with him. While he was appointed CEO in 2011, Robert has already accomplished so much within the institution in the less than a decade of his leadership. For instance, the institute’s membership has hit record highs despite it being in existence for over 160 years. Most importantly, he led the opening of two overseas chapters in China and Canada bringing them to a total of seven.

Joining other legendary artisans

While Robert may be the first practicing architect to scope this prestigious award, he joins a never-ending list of Mississippi natives whose works also earned him this honor. These include actor Morgan Freeman (2007), author Eudora Welty (2001), as well as artist Walter Anderson (1998). He, however, wouldn’t be the only one on the podium come the 2nd June, Robert will share this moment of glory with a Mississippi based artist, Andrey Carl Young of Stained Glass studios. In 2017, Robert walked away with the Dean’s medal from the University of Arkansas.
