SEARCH IN BRIEF

 
Rick Bell, FAIA Resigns as Executive Director of AIA New York

News broke this morning, 27 March, that Rick Bell, FAIA has resigned as the Executive Director of AIA New York, a post he held for 14 years. Under his leadership Bell raised the visibility of the American Institute of Architects oldest and largest chapter and served it well through thoughtful, intelligent, and spirited leadership. Statements issued today from the AIA New York and its public relations counsel suggest that the departure was sudden. That statement said,  “AIANY and Cen-ter for Architecture Executive Director Rick Bell has offered, and the organization’s Board of Di-rectors has accepted, his immediate resignation. An interim Executive Director will be named next week and a search to find a new Executive Director will also begin at that time.”  Bell came to AIANY after serving as Director of the Department of Buildings for the City of New York.  During his tenure, he founded the Center for Architecture and was instrumental in the creation of many programs vital to New Yorkers, including the New York New Visions Design and Planning Coalition committed to rebuilding New York City after the 9/11 attacks and FitCity, which pro-motes physical activity through design.  Closer to home, Rick opened the doors of AIANY’s Greenwich Village home to WAN in 2013, facilitating a successful partnership between the or-ganization and us to bring the 2013 World Architecture Day conference to New York City.
