The Committee on Design (COD) was founded to promote design excellence among members of the AIA, the broader design community, and the public at large, both nationally and internationally.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the AIA Committee on Design leadership voted to postpone the domestic and international conferences to 2021. The new dates for the conferences are Denver, May 13 to 16, and Singapore, October 9 to 22.
Ed Mazria: "Besides reducing greenhouse gas emissions, creating a green grid will accomplish two things: produce jobs and save consumers money. The savings for U.S. energy consumers since 2005 is over a trillion dollars, because building sector energy consumption did not increase while we added billions of square feet to our building stock. The decoupling of building growth from energy consumption is important, because it completely negates the argument that it will cost an exorbitant amount of money to decarbonize the built environment. It isn't going to cost consumers anything! They will save money."
h/t to Martin Pedersen for continuing to amplify many important voices in COMMON EDGE COLLABORATIVE, including Ed Mazria's, on the critical issues we face today, including ... including climate (without solving this one, all the ingenuity in the world on the others will be irrelevant)
