Gustavus Ferguson elected president of Institute of Bahamian Architects

admin

Gustavus Ferguson was elected president of the Institute of Bahamian Architects (IBA) during the 2017 IBA general assembly in Nassau, and will lead the organization that represents Bahamian architects for a two-year term.

He has served as secretary/treasurer for the last three terms along with stints on various committees.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as IBA president, as the institute is strong. We are fully engaged with the FCAA, CAA, UIA and other world bodies. We are advancing national and regional policies and programs of real significance,” said Ferguson during his acceptance. “We must show The Bahamas how architecture can help to resolve the difficult issues facing our community. At the same time, we will look to enhance our preservation efforts and pursue policy review and changes for the future. IBA is here to unify architects; influence built environment policies, practices and outcomes and advance the power of architecture.”

Ferguson is a practicing architect and urban designer with Ferguson Associates, an adjunct professor at the University of The Bahamas and an instructor at the Bahamas Technical & Vocational institute. He received his professional degree, a bachelor’s degree in architecture, from the University of Arkansas, and a master’s degree in urban design from the University of Toronto.

Ferguson plans to engage government departments and agencies on meeting national challenges through design and policies, while promoting cooperation among architects.

“We couldn’t be more confident in the skills that Gus brings to IBA; members are proud to have an especially qualified representative in Gustavus Ferguson to lead the Institute,” said Amos Ferguson, FIBA. “Gus also brings creativity, proven leadership, unique perspective and experience, so I’m excited for the institute’s future in expanding the role it plays in improving the profession and helping us all share the power of architecture nationally.”

Established in Nassau, Bahamas, in 1973, the IBA is recognized as a non-governmental organization in The Bahamas. It works on matters of professional and public interest. It is chartered to unite architects nationally, without regard to political viewpoint.

“As secretary of the IBA for the past three terms, Gus demonstrated strong leadership through a deep understanding of the national and regional architecture community, and a clear vision for unity,” said past President Andre Braynen. “I look forward to the progress our community will make under his leadership.”
