Robert Ivy: Building Foundations for Health

     The CEO of the American Institute of Architects, Robert Ivy, believes good, intentional design can improve public health. In the fall of 2012, the American Institute of Architects gave a ten-year commitment to address public health through design and technology solutions. While aesthetics are important to design, the American Institute of Architects and Robert Ivy want environmental and human health to be the main focus of architecture.

There are three initiatives for their ten-year goal: collaboration planning with the communities involved, university research, and Hackathons to create apps and technology. The University of Arkansas, Texas A&M, and the University of New Mexico were the first to receive research grants. Part of Robert Ivy’s research goals is to prove that design impacts health and they are seeking to quantify the benefits.

Prior to the AIA, he was with McGraw-Hill from 1996 to 2011 as Editor in Chief for the Architectural Record.

Cities are implementing more parks with scenic walking trails and building schools with natural lighting to improve the students’ ability to concentrate.

Josh Smith Among Organic Food Innovators

A common characteristic found in all innovators is the drive to continually look for new solutions towards every problem, ranging from unavailability of water and to the change of climate. A prototype product that copies the way living systems acquire, deposit and disperses water has been generated in New York by an international team, NexLoop. In the 2017 Biomimicry Global Design challenge, the prototype received an award- The $100,000 Ray C. Anderson Foundation Ray of Hope Prize.
The prototype, AquaWeb, has an objective to help food producers from urban areas to collect and reserve atmospheric moisture, dispersing it to their farms. Aquaweb changes the whole idea of getting water from the ground and instead it employs the idea of harvesting rain and fog water. It then distributes the water to urban farms using passive strategies. This saves energy that would otherwise have been used by the farms to provide water. AquaWeb is inspired by various natural systems such as the crystalline ice plant which stores water, the cribellate orb weaver spider webs which efficiently solicit fog from the air and the Jersey cow mushroom which distributes water.
Other than the AquaWeb, innovation of modular greenhouses by Josh smith has really taken agriculture to a whole new level. Mr. Smith is the founder and CEO of modular greenhouses, based in Reno, Nevada. He believes that children in this generation are fed with a lot of junk and this has driven him to the success of his innovation, Modular Greenhouses. Josh smith, having the knowledge on how to build a self driven focused and experienced team, pushes his company to achieving the set goals.
The modular greenhouse is basically an automated greenhouse that can easily fit in a small backyard, patio or even the living room. According to Josh, most urban area residences have limited space for agriculture, as it is in the case of Rena Nevada. The modular greenhouse solves this problem since its variety of sizes ensures that it can easily be accommodated to an urban home. It is easy to set up, with a quick assembly system that makes it easy for the user to install. It is also fully modular to allow easy expansion of the greenhouse
