American Institute of Architects: how architecture can improve public relations and health

Public health and public relations are crucial areas in any given community. In the American Intitute of Architects, Robert Ivy, the executive vice president and chief executive officer of the institute, explains that architecture can play a great role in improving health and giving disaster research solutions. Additionally, he explains that architects should think far and beyold in their field so as to improve the public health and relations. Below are some of the ways that Robert Ivy gave in which architecture improves the public health and relations.

Fighting non communicable diseases

Most of the non-communicable diseases are brought about by lack of enough fresh air, clean water and enough sunlight. Additionally, lack of exercise can also contribute to some of these diseases. For instance, to avoid disesases caused by lack of exercises, architectures should design buildings with stair cases. Again, they should ensure that the buildings they design have a good access to air, water and enough sunlight. Designing a building having the following in mind will eliminate some of these disease.

Having the right design materials

Some of the materials used to design and construct buildings can have a negative effect on humans health. The type of materials that architectures use have a major effect in not only individual but also mass health. Robert Ivy added that in institutes such as the American Institute of Architects, architectures are taught on how various materials affect people’s health. In that case architectures make sure that they use materials that do not have any negative effect on the human body thus improving public health.

Creating team work

For one to succeed in any project, isolation has to be highly discouraged. Architects collaborate with people from other professions for them to come up with the best designs. RobertIvy also stated that one of the key skills of any architect is the ability to create big teams wherther or not the building is successful. In doing this, they are able to bring together people from different displines thus greatly improving their public relations. Additionally, they are able to come up with the best designs as they get ideas from many people and come up with the best.

From some time back in history, architecture has played a significant role in improving public health and relations. RobertIvy further explains that in the American Institute of Architects, more of the ways on how to build public health and relations have been made known to the upcoming architectures. It is, therefore, clear that the architecture profession is positively evolving.
