Design Impact Matters – Architects Shape Lives

2017 presents a changing landscape, as concerns over environmental decline, increasing atmospheric carbon, and competition for resources mount. At the same time, creative and courageous people are forging new pathways full of promise and hope. More and more research demonstrates the impact which the built environment has on many of the most daunting challenges, and also, how important transforming the built environment is in resolving them.

In 2015 and 2016, more than 200 nations including the Unites States came together to address these issues head on. In December 2015, the Paris Agreement on Climate Change was adopted, mapping out strategies to reduce, and ultimately eliminate, greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. In May 2016, Habitat III, conducted in Quito, Ecuador, adopted the New Urban Agenda which embraces the importance of urbanization in meeting human needs and correcting unintended consequences.

To achieve Paris Agreement targets and advance the New Urban Agenda, architects are called to retool how buildings are designed, constructed, and operated and to shape better lives for the clients and communities we serve: everything; everywhere; everyone.

Architects shape lives. By accepting the mandates of the Paris Agreement and New Urban Agenda, architecture’s relevance, value, and prosperity are secured for a generation or more. How will architects respond?

In Memoriam: Gabriel A. Calenda AIA

Gabriel A. Calenda A.I.A. architect Gabriel A. Calenda, 84, of Clark, N.J., formerly of Mountainside, N.J., entered into eternal rest on Thursday, April 27, 2017, surrounded by his loving family.
Gabe was born in New York City, N.Y., to Joseph and Mary (Russo) Calenda. He graduated from Belleville High School and proudly served his country in the Navy during the Korean War. He graduated from Columbia University and Newark College of Engineering (now NJIT). Gabe was a New Jersey registered architect, starting his practice in Springfield, N.J., and was most recently in Kenilworth, N.J. He was a past president of the Newark and Suburban Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
Gabe was predeceased by his beloved wife of 52 years, Marie (DeFalco) Calenda, and his brothers, Anthony and George Calenda. He is survived by his two loving daughters, Lisa Cikowski and her husband, Dr. Edward Cikowski, and Leslie Olear and her husband, Jeff Olear; four adoring grandsons, Mark Cikowski, Christopher Cikowski, Scott Cikowski, and Jordan Olear, and many caring nieces and nephews. Gabe was a great man, loving father and grandfather, and a friend to many.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in his memory to the American Cancer Society , 986 Springfield Ave., Springfield, N.J. 07081.
