Our Mission

The Building Performance Knowledge Community is one of the twenty-one ways to make an impact through the AIA Knowledge Communities.

The goal of the Building Performance Knowledge Community 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.

Get involved!

The American Institute of Architects actively promotes a diverse profession, including race, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability or sexual orientation. We strive to be an inclusive Knowledge Community representing diversity of thought, geographic diversity, both traditional and non-traditional practice and as well as providing opportunities for seasoned professionals, associate members, and young architects.

We're looking for enthusiastic people who want to help make our profession better. If you have an interest in becoming active in a leadership role, please reach out to staff or anyone on our advisory group.
