SUSTAINABLE PLACES + COMMUNITY SPACES
How do great communities happen? What is the role of design in fostering cohesive neighborhoods? Lyndsey Deaton brings together research and experience as a licensed architect to illustrate the successful patterns of sustainable places and community spaces in this one-hour presentation. She will weave the latest urban design research into five architectural stories thatrange in scale: Vivid Summer Parklet, ReachOUT House, Dexter Rowing Center, Santa Monica Low Income Housing Project, and Fort Leonard Wood 2030 Sustainability Plan.
During this session, Lyndsey will identify specific patterns from the works of Christopher Alexander (A Pattern Language), Alan Jacobs (Great Streets), and Kevin Lynch (Image of the City) and tie them to these five architecture and planning projects. With this foundation in place she will frame contemporary architectural research into key themes to support great and cohesive communities.
Lyndsey is a licensed architect and urban planner with projects across the United States, the Middle and Far East, and Africa. She is also a doctoral candidate in Architecture and the Associate Director of the Urban Design Lab at the University of Oregon.
Lyndsey understands how design can be used to make great communities happen. Her systems-basedplanning solutions for sustainable communities were featured in Architect Magazine (2011) and received awards such as the Lafarge Holcim Award for Sustainable Construction (2012), the APA's Outstanding Collaborative Planning Project (2016), and the Mayor's Choice Award, City of Eugene (2017). Her research explores how contemporary social phenomenons - such as social media and neoliberalization - shape the use of the urban environment and influence community cohesion. Her most recent publications include a chapter in Whose Tradition, "New Traditions of Placemaking in Central-West Africa" and " Social Traditions and the Built Form: The Tiny-House Village Model for Chronically Homeless Americans" in Traditional Dwellings and Settlements Review WPS Fall 2016.
More information will be posted as the programs are developed and confirmed.

ARE Study Guides and Architect's Handbook of Professional Practice available at the Louisville Free Public Library
The AIA/CKC recently purchased a copy of the Architect's Handbook of Professional Practice (15th edition) and donated the copy to the Louisville Free Public Library. In response to a recent request. The intent was to make this book available to candidates studying for the ARE although this book may be checked out by anyone with a library card.

Also, as a reminder, the ARE Study Guides (version 4.0) were purchased about three years ago by the chapter and donated at the Louisville Free Public Library for use by candidates studying for the ARE. These study guides are still available.

The Central Kentucky Chapter is the oldest of AIA Kentucky’s chapters. Established on February 3,1908, it was the state’s only AIA chapter until 1952 when the Eastern Kentucky Chapter was organized. AIA Kentucky was formed in 1962 Known as the “CKC”, this chapter has always been headquartered in Louisville, with AIA members throughout the central, southern, and western regions of Kentucky.
Louisville architect Charles Clarke was selected to be the first president. He was also the first Kentucky architect to join the Western Society of Architects in 1882. But he died on March 9, 1908, and his partner, Arthur Loomis, fulfilled the remainder of the year as president. Loomis was a well-known architect who created many local landmarks: Speed Art Museum, Conrad-Caldwell House, Levy Building; St. Peter’s Church; St. Paul’s Church; etc.
To promote architecture in the city and state, the chapter presented an exhibition of architecture in 1912. This event involved all of the prominent Kentucky architects of the period. As a result, a book was published that catalogued all of the building projects that the various firms had produced. This book is still referenced today as a valuable historical resource.
James Murphy, who was president when this exhibit was held, was a very active member of the chapter. He was the brother to D. X. Murphy, whose firm created Churchill Downs, the old Jefferson County Jail, and other notable buildings. Their firm still operates today under the name of Luckett & Farley. James Murphy was a vocal advocate for better civic design and planning. His efforts eventually led to the state’s first planning commission in 1928, of which he became the first chairman.
The list of former presidents is a ‘who’s who’ of legendary architects within Louisville and Kentucky, a few of which are: Mason Maury; Brinton B. Davis; Herman Wischmeyer; C. Julian Oberwarth; Frederick Morgan; Frederick Louis; as well as several father and sons: Arnold Judd, (Sr. and Jr.) and Thomas Dade Luckett (II and III). Read more...
