Who we are

In April 2019, COD was in San Francisco for it's annual domestic conference. Check out the conference resources and the pictures!

    Good people,

    The COTE Toolkit just launched on's site today, please go and check it out and share with your networks. The project spanned over the last year+ with over 40 architects from across many of AIA's KCs and Working Groups contributing. Thank you for your efforts!  

    As a quick introduction - The toolkit combines research, best practices, and award winning case studies to support deep green projects. The superspreadsheet is a great tool to quantify project impacts across the spectrum of sustainable measures such as community, ecology, energy, water, resilience, health resources and especially design.

    All the best,
