The goal of the Building Performance Knowledge Community (BPKC) is to promote architects as leaders in the application of technical design for building performance; in the use of high-performance design criteria, codes, and standards; and in programming, designing and managing building performance. To advance, disseminate, and advocate—to the architecture profession, AIA members, building owners, the construction industry, the academy, and the public—design practices that create buildings that are healthy, energy efficient, and durable.
Please consider submitting an abstract by April 1 (tomorrow!) for the 2020 AIA/ACSA Intersections Research Conference.
The American Institute of Architects and Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture have launched this new series of conferences focused on how academics and practitioners generate architectural research to address societal challenges. The first - scheduled for October 1-3, 2020 in Philadelphia - will focus on research needed to manage carbon in the built environment.
