  • AIA CAE Sub Committee for Higher Education Monthly Call

    This month's presentation by Gunnar Hubbard and Michael Pulaski, principals at Thornton Tomasetti, will focus on Sustainability in the planning, designing, and operating of Higher Education campuses and buildings. We will address master planning approaches, guideline examples, and present several building typologies ranging from low energy science buildings to dorms pursuing passive house certification. Their presentation will be followed by a discussion among all participants.

  • Get connected to the K12 subcommittee!

    We are looking for a group of energized individuals who can assist our committee in the acquisition, selection, and dissemination of content and sharing relevant to our membership, and to the learning environment community at large.

    Interested? Please contact Chris Blessen to get connected.
