Over his working career, he has gained much experience in the field of architecture, and it is this experience and knowledge that enabled him to write the Fay Jones: Architect book. The famous piece was done in 2011 and has been given much praise by the Library Society of North America. According to the organization, it is one of the greatest architectural books ever written. The book presents architects from all over the world with a lot of guidelines which they can use in their daily operations and teaches them to become better at what they do.

AIA was established with the aim of elevating the architectural profession back in 1857 by a certain group of individual architects. They were to do this and at the same time promote science in the architectural practice. With Robert Ivy in charge, the organization has been thriving in its quest, therefore, being rated the best at it. Robert’s role involves overseeing important projects as well as managing the organization on all fronts. He also ensures that the members behave professionally wherever they are working since they portray the image of the organization as a whole.
Through its good reputation, AIA has grown making it very marketable in different parts. Currently, the number of professional architects that the firm has stands at 90,000 and is likely to grow in the years to come. Robert is likely to take more awards home to add to the Management Excellence in McGraw Hill Award, which he won in 1998, and the Crain Award, which he won in 2009.
