About this event
Mississippi State's School of Architecture is welcoming Robert Ivy, executive vice president and CEO of the American Institute of Architects, as the newest guest in its spring Harrison Lecture Series. Ivy holds a Master of Architecture degree from Tulane University and a Bachelor of Arts in English from Sewanee. In 1996, he became Editor-in-Chief of Architectural Record magazine. He also served as vice president and editorial director of McGraw-Hill Construction Media and as a juror on the panel that selected architect Frank Gehry to design the National Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial. A principal at Dean/Dale, Dean and Ivy and a critic for many national publications from 1981-96, Ivy taught in MSU’s School of Architecture in the early 1990s and currently serves as an advisory board member. In March 2010, Alpha Rho Chi national architecture fraternity voted unanimously to name Ivy as a “Master Architect,” making him one of seven to receive the honor in the fraternity’s 100-year history and the first architect selected in the 21st century.
