The American Institute of Architects (AIA) the Architects Foundation and the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) today announced the availability of “From Research to Application: Building the Bridge to Practice,” a summary of the second annual convening of the AIA’s Design and Health Research Consortium held April 12-13, 2016, in Alexandria, Va.
The AIA and the ACSA announced the formation of the Consortium in December 2014, naming 11 architecture schools and schools of public health as charter members of a group which works to advance university-led research linking design and health. Since then, the consortium has grown in size to 17 members.
“We are working to create a bridge between the academy and practice and help the design firms access to this research in ways that are consumable and applicable for practice,” said Suzanna Kelley, FAIA, AIA managing director of strategic alliances and initiatives. “This document includes real-world strategies, tactics, tools and tips that will help our university teams think differently about how they engage architects, foundations, and government partners.”
