AIA Architect Magazine focuses on new Certificate Program
January 20, 2011
In its January 2011 edition, AIA Architect Magazine discusses the certificate program in Asset Repositioning and Turnaround Strategies at UT Arlington, headed up by Professor Michael Buckley, FAIA. "Downtown Turnaround" was written by Elizabeth Evitts Dickinson.
"We know we have a difficult financing environment, and we have to make the case for design. Rather than waiting for the economy to rebound, architects must engineer solutions," Buckley says in the article. "The power of architects to visualize something needs to be matched by the ability to visualize it fiscally. If architects get empowered to understand the financing part of a project - record cost and revenue potential of design - they get on the playing side of the sandbox."
