Dialogue: Bastiaan Bouma
Q&A WITH BASTIAAN BOUMA BASTIAAN BOUMA, executive director/CEO for the San Diego chapter of the American Institute of Architects, admits he has a "puzzler" of a name, but it's no mystery what he would like to see happen with the advocacy group he began leading in November. Bastiaan Bouma The Canadian-born son of Dutch immigrants plans on increasing his membership by 25 percent (it currently numbers about 800), as well as raising the group's profile in the community at large. He brings a distinct blend of skills to the task, including a law degree and experience in international trade and tourism as a member of the Canadian Foreign Service. Prior to his arrival in San Diego, he worked with the Chicago Architecture Foundation, where he was responsible for large-scale public programs, including Open House Chicago, which shepherded more than 40,000 people through architectural sites around the city.


New CEO of AIA wants to engage public | American Institute of Architects - San Diego

For the last few years, the American Institute of Architects San Diego chapter has faced declining membership and a disconnect with the public, but the nonprofit hopes to change its fortunes with its newly hired executive director and CEO Bastiaan Bouma.
"My role here is to serve the interest of our members," Bouma said. "To help them be more effective in the design business because, ultimately, our practitioners are trying to make a living." Bouma took over as leader and spokesman of the 501(c)(6) nonprofit chapter in November, after Elizabeth O'Malley stepped down as executive director to pursue another career. The San Diego chapter held a national search last year; Bouma was chosen from a pool of 50, including an applicant from England. Bouma was associated with the public education nonprofit Chicago Architecture Foundation since 1999, where he was vice president and managing director. Bastiaan Bouma Bastiaan Bouma is the new executive director and CEO of the American Institute of Architects San Diego chapter. "It's a weekend festival of free, behind-the-scenes public access to great spaces and places that are usually not open to the public [and] casual visitors," Bouma said. Some examples include the backstage of a theater, the mechanical room of an office building, a sewage treatment plant, restaurants and a public transportation garage. Typically, these open houses did not include residences. "It was started in London 20 years ago. In London they usually get 150,000 to 200,000 people for the weekend," Bouma said. For Bouma's last Open House Chicago in October, 45,000 people took part. "The secret is that it's free and it's family-friendly, and people love to get in behind the scenes," Bouma said. "We are hoping to foster something similar in San Diego." Bouma also said he was brought to San Diego to support the chapter's goals for professional development; marketing and promotion; to enhance public awareness of the design resources that are available in San Diego; and to elevate the process of working with architects and designers. "There is this sense that designers are difficult to approach; that they are expensive [and that] they complicate your project," Bouma said. "Well, our message to the public and to both residential and commercial clients is there is a very good value proposition in hiring a professional designer. "Not only do you get a better looking project," he said. Another goal of Bouma's is to advocate for legislation that aids design professionals. One idea is to help architectural firms get some reimbursement when bidding on large government projects "The average design investment in a large-scale federal project is $260,000, before you even submit the bid. And typically this is uncompensated," Bouma said. "There is a lot of risk associated with this." He said just over half of AIA members are from one- or two-employee design firms and roughly 90 percent of members come from firms that have 50 or fewer associates. "They don't have the resources to bid on big projects because there is a lot of time and effort required (for instance) on a federal design-build project," Bouma said. The San Diego chapter has about 800 members, a board of directors and three staff members. Bouma is in charge of the chapter's $300,000 annual budget.
