Jim Larkin

On January 21, 1876, James Larkin was born to a Irish parents in Liverpool, England. The boy, who would become known as Jim Larkin or “Big Jim” Larkin, went on to be central to the Irish labor movement.

Larkin’s early years were spent in poverty in Liverpool and, later, the small Irish village of Burren in the County Down. He received little formal education and had to go to work while still young. By his twenties, he had regular employment on the docks. These early experiences helped to shape his ideals.

In 1905, Larkin rose to prominence during a dock strike. Shortly after, he became a full-time organizer for the National Union of Dock Labourers (NUDL). It was in this role that he became the first to organize the unskilled laborers of Belfast.

Not long after a perceived betrayal by NUDL leaders during a lockout, Larkin was sent to Dublin to mobilize port workers. There he chose to break free and establish his own union, the Irish Transport and General Workers Union (ITGWU). Read more: Jim Larkin | Biography

ITGWU quickly grew and became the largest in Ireland within just a few years. In 1911, Larkin established a weekly labor newspaper. The following year, he acquired Liberty Hall as the union’s headquarters.

During this same time, ITGWU had successfully organized almost all unskilled labor in Dublin. One of the exceptions was the Dublin United Tramway Company (DUTC). Confrontation with DUTC would lead to the 1913 Dublin Lockout and a sharp defeat for Larkin’s union.

After this devastation, Jim Larkin traveled to the United States to raise money to rebuild the union. His political activities led to his imprisonment for nearly three years. In 1923, he was deported back to Ireland where he was warmly welcomed.

Despite his efforts, however, he never again fully regained his standing within the labor movement. Instead, he eventually found himself pushed out of the very union that he had founded.

On January 30, 1947, Larkin died in Dublin. However, his legend lives on. He was commemorated with a statue in Dublin, and he has been mentioned in several poems and songs.

The AIA – American Institute of Architects.

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) is an organization of architects based in the U.S, whose headquarters are in Washington. It has been the leading association for professionals and licensed architects since its inception in 1857. The association offers government advocacy, education, public outreach and community development. It also accommodates the design and construction members in coordination of the building industry.

Robert Ivy is currently the Vice President and Chief Executive of AIA. AIA has over 250 chapters, and 90,000 architects and designers. Robert Ivy took over in 2001, and he has been successful in streamlining the AIA governance, building a new technologically digital architecture, a public awareness campaign and greater decision making. Currently, he is focused on ensuring AIA’s architects are addressing the more pressing issues such as sustainability, climate change, and public health design.

Before his current position, Robert Ivy worked at McGraw-Hill Construction as a Vice President and Editorial Director, and the Architectural Record Magazine Editor in Chief. The Architectural Record earned many honors under him, which included the National Magazine Award for General Excellence which was quite an unusual feat to achieve for any professional Journal.

He has also authored a biography called “Fay Jones: Architect,” which is currently in its third edition where he seeks to educate audiences on the meaning and role of architecture.

The main reason why the AIA was founded in 1857 in the city of New York was to create an association where its members would be governed and elevate their profession. It began with only 13 members and has grown to more than 90,000 architects. The initial members were, Leopold Eidlitz, Richard Morris Hunt, Henry Dudley, Charles Babcock, Edward Gardiner, Fred A. Petersen, Joseph C. Wells, Jacob Wrey Mould, John Welch Alexander, Jackson Davis, Calvert Vaux, Thomas U. Walter and Richard Upjohn as the president. Before this, there were no laws governing architecture, and hence anyone could claim that he/she was an architect

There are five membership levels at the AIA

  • Architect members: These are licensed members that practice with a license in the U.S.
  • Associate members: These are unlicensed architects who work under a licensed architect.
  • International members: These are qualified architects that studied outside the U.S. and hold a license
  • Emeritus members: These are members who are 65 years, and have been in AIA for more than 15 years successively. They could also be incapacitated members unable to practice as architects.
  • Finally, the Allied members, who are professionals that have an interest in architecture or are related to the art. They build and designs, e.g., planners, engineers or senior build and design executives. It also includes Product manufacturers and publishers.
