G. Martin Moeller, Jr, Assoc. AIA (TSA ‘84) receives 2013 AIA Associates Award

The AIA Associates Award is the highest award given to individual associate AIA members who best exemplify the highest qualities of leadership and have demonstrated an unparalleled commitment to their component or region’s membership, in the community, in professional organizations, and/or in the design and construction industries.

Martin has become a force for public appreciation of the power of design in society. Under his leadership, AIA DC became a component that represented all facets of the profession. At the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture, he helped connect the academic world to practice. And at the National Building Museum, he has curated a number of well-reviewed and highly regarded exhibitions, including Liquid Stone and Unbuilt Washington, which are not only interesting to view but also further serious architectural scholarship.

All of this gave him a unique platform from which to craft content that deepens and broadens the conversation on the built environment and to share it through speaking, writing, and curating exhibitions. While thriving in a team culture, he behaves like an entrepreneur making new and exciting work happen. His self-adopted mission is to find and present the best that architecture can be in the accessible context of American buildings. The sum total of his work has been an extraordinary elevation of the public's consciousness about the value of architecture as a fundamental element of our larger cultural richness. He is a stalwart supporter of architecture education at many levels and serves on the Tulane School of Architecture Board of Advisors. In addition, he has authored two editions of the AIA Guide to the Architecture of Washington, D.C. He is the rare individual who can speak as eloquently and effectively to an audience of design professionals as to a group of citizens.

Andrew Liles (TSA '11) Adjunct Lecturer published in the Undergraduate Journal of Service Learning and Community-Based Research

Andre Liles

Coordinated by Andrew Liles AIA, Tulane School of Architecture second year design studio students documented the effects of the 2011 Atchafalaya Basin floods on the Morgan City. The students conducted interviews and developed essays focused on the businesses most affected by the floods. The material was compiled into a single volume presented to the Morgan City Archives which do not have the labor to gather the information on their own accord; but thrive on the personal stories of their citizens.

This volume has been selected for publication by the Undergraduate Journal of Service Learning & Community-Based Research. Published by Penn State Berks, the journal also selected the "reflection" essay of Aubrey Keady-Molanphy, a current third year student.
