AD Interviews: Mickey Jacob, President AIA 2013

Since we’re in Denver for the AIA National Convention, we seized upon the opportunity to interview Mickey Jacob, FAIA, managing principal at Urban Studio Architects and the President of the AIA for 2013. We sat down with Jacob to get his opinion on some important issues facing the architecture profession today.

On this year’s conference theme (Building Leaders), Jacobs explained, “I want to create better opportunities for architects to take on leadership roles, and once we do, we elevate the public awareness of the importance of architecture.” He also gives his advice for students and emerging professionals, encouraging young architects to, “share your creativity, share your energy, share your leadership ability.”
