President’s Message
J. William Williams, AIA

While writing this message for the third quarter edition of the Architrave it became apparent on how busy this quarter has
been for the AIA Dayton Chapter and its membership. The highlights from the quarter shows the varying degrees the im-
pact the Chapter has on its membership, the profession and the community.


In August around 100 golfers attended the AIA Dayton Golf Outing at Sugar Valley Country Club in Bellbrook, Ohio. The
outing provided the members of AIA Dayton and its sponsors and allied professionals a chance to spend the afternoon
together enjoying a round of golf along with good food, drink and fun. The Golf Committee headed by Diana Conboy,
AIA should be recognized for all their hard work associated with this event. Close to $10,000 was raised for the Chapter.
Some of these proceeds will be given to the AIA Dayton Scholarship Fund on behalf the Chapter. Through support of this
event, $8,000 in scholarships were given this year to area high school and college students. Please see the photos for the
golf outing at the AIA Dayton website as well as a donor card in this issue for your use in contributing directly to the AIA
Dayton Scholarship Fund.

Over 40 people attended the Aileron Building and Campus Tour in Tipp City held in September. Thanks to Tom Hesse,
AIA for arranging this tour for AIA Dayton and Lee Skolnick, FAIA, principal at LHSA+DP who lead the tour of Aileron
Campus which included a brief history of Aileron, types of services offered, and discussion on the buildings, environmental
design and LEED certification.

The Architectural Basic and Bagel (ABB) morning seminars continue to be well attended and in the coming months pro-
grams will feature Audio/Visual design parameters and ADA accessibility requirements in housing. All ABB seminars are
provided free to AIA Dayton members.


The AIA Dayton Focus on Design Awards program will take place in the Wintergarden space at the Benjamin & Marian
Schuster Center on Thursday, November 20, 2008. The program will be an opportunity to celebrate design and to honor
posthumously the 2008 Recipient of the Architecture Advocacy Award – Benjamin Kline, former architectural columnist
and reporter for Dayton Daily News. The Design Awards Jury for this year program includes Jim Dalton, FAIA of Kent
State University, Bill Browne, AIA of Ratio Architects and Jonathan Hess, AIA of Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf Architects.

Our annual Sponsor Appreciation Dinner was held again at Siebenthaler Company’s Cabin in Beavercreek. Over 50
Sponsors and AIA Dayton members enjoyed an evening of food and fellowship. Mark Ruetschle, AIA and Matt Franklin,
AIA joined me in presenting certificates of appreciation to our Chapter’s sponsor for 2008. Through Mark’s and Matt’s
hard work we were able to increase chapter sponsorship this year. Please check out the Chapter’s sponsorship listing on
our website and weekly News Brief and please take a minute to thank any of our Chapter’s sponsor you may see in the
near future.


CANstruction program was held again at the Dayton Art Institute during the Oktoberfest Weekend and featured teams
from Interbrand-Design Forum, Miami University and a combined team from LJB and the CANstruction Committee
Members to build structures out of canned foods. These teams designed and planned the “Can You Play” themed struc-
tures with a total of 14,038 lbs of food. In addition to donating the can foods used in the structures, a check for $9,000
was given to The Food Bank of Dayton to further help their organization. Special thanks to the CANstruction Committee,
Wende Morgan-Elliott, AIA and Julie Sabourin, AIA for their hard work and dedication to this project.


The Downtown Dayton Partnership and the local architectural community, through the AIA Dayton Chapter, are teaming
up for a very important project –a study of the potential strategic reuse of some key buildings in downtown Dayton. As
you know, downtown has numerous buildings that are currently under utilized and are prime for potential redevelopment.
                                                                                                            article continued on page 3

tion Forecast, a survey of the nation’s leading construction forecasters, the nonresidential sector has experienced cutbacks in demand for new
space, and the projections for construction activity for new nonresidential facilities are in for a mild decline in 2008, with a more significant downturn
in 2009. The forecasts are more negative for commercial and industrial buildings, with an especially large drop-off in the office and retail sectors.
The forecast also calls for a 1.9% decline in inflation-adjusted activity in 2008, followed by a projected 6.7% decline in 2009. Source: American Institute of
