1100 Architect founding partner David Piscuskas, FAIA, has been inaugurated as 2017 President of the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIANY). In his inaugural address, delivered at New York’s Center for Architecture on December 13, 2016, he unveiled his theme for the year, “Architects: Assembly Required.” His remarks and the theme underscore the importance of architects taking an active role in community engagement, tackling issues like diversity, service, and climate change. As he put it, “it’s up to our own membership in this organization, and on the matter of it being up to us, I am filled with optimism and trust.”
