Florida Association of the American Institute of Architects, Tallahassee
Ignacio Reyes, AIA, NCARB, is the president of the 3,9000-member Florida Association of the American Institute of Architects.
Reyes, son of Cuban immigrants, of West Palm Beach, has practiced architecture for more than 25 years. He is the vice president and chief development officer at LEO A DALY.
"I believe architecture plays a fundamental role in culture, whether by responding to a particular cultural experience or helping to shape new cultural expressions," he said. "The architecture of ancient societies helps us gain insight into its people's culture in profound ways, perhaps more than any artifact. To a great extent, we are what we build."
AIA Florida members are dedicated to shaping Florida's future through excellent architecture.
