2019 AIA Roc President Jason Streb, AIA and Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo

AIA Rochester officially kicked off our 100th year anniversary of professional architects in Rochester with a press conference at the renovated airport on January 23, 2019. AIA Rochester 2019 President Jason Streb, AIA, presented our three main public initiatives: the Installation Competition, the Fashion Week show, and our Centennial-themed Design Awards Gala.  He was joined by Cheryl Dinolfo of Monroe County and Holly Barrett, P.E. of the City of Rochester, who proclaimed January 23 to be American Institute of Architects Day and The 100th Anniversary of AIA Rochester in the County and City, respectively.  Dinolfo and Barrett publicly lauded the architects of our city for the positive contribution we have made in shaping our landscape and our community. Streb was also joined by City Councilmember Elaine Spaull and Meghan McNamara Mundy, who spoke excitedly of our upcoming Fashion Week collaboration.

The press conference was featured on Channel 8 news that evening and in a montage on Cheryl Dinolfo's social media, where she wrote, "As a high-profile example of the power of architecture and design, the newly transformed @Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC) is a fitting place to begin the Centennial Celebration of AIA Rochester. The Airport is a testament to the outstanding work of these talented professionals and the economic impact that investments in public works projects can generate. Similar to other projects, ranging from the Seneca Park Zoo expansion to transportation infrastructure upgrades, it’s evident that working closely with the architecture community will continue to create #MoreJobs while enhancing the vibrancy of our community. Thank you to AIA Rochester for sharing our vision for a stronger Monroe County."  You can view the montage on her youtube page https://youtu.be/nq0Aj-PAGtA.

Monroe County also issued a press release recapping the afternoon.
