Inside the amazing life of Robert Ivy
Imagine waking up one morning to find out that you have just won an award. Not just any old award that can be handed out to anyone, but an award that takes an entire lifetime to achieve. Now, on top of that, imagine that you are the first architect in history to be honored for this award. Sounds to good to be true right? I thought so also until I read about a former U.S. Navy officer by the name of Robert Ivy. This incredible mind received the Noel Polk Lifetime Achievement Award from the Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters (MIAL) just this year and looking at his work,it is completely clear that there is no other person better to receive this high honor.
Within a very short list of people which include Morgan Freeman, Shelby Foote and Leontyne Price, Robert Ivy has definitely made a name for himself around the world. The AIA (American Institute of Architects) noticed and watched as the potential that Robert held inside of himself grew. In 2011, AIA was proud to announce Mr. Robert Ivy as the new CEO. With making architecture more obtainable to the general public, Robert decided to take the company global.
Now, around the world, the AIA helps American architects know the value of design while providing prices that the public simply cannot ignore. In fact, he has actually already won an award by the national architecture fraternity, Alpha Rho Chi, for his effectiveness in communicating the value of design in such an understanding way. Robert Ivy is definitely an artistic prodigy of our time that does not look like he is going to quit anytime soon. The amount of possibilities are truly endless with this man. Growing one mind at a time, he is taking this world on by storm. Great minds equal amazing results.
