    Both COTE® award and the Architecture Awards programs celebrate exemplary models of contemporary architecture which highlight parameters of AIA's Framework for Design Excellence. From the extensive list of projects, one can discern those that define the intersection between sustainable principles and design achievement, including within them a unique sense of place, use of materials, and other more formal qualities that exist within a well-defined environmental approach. Through exploring three projects, learn innovations of sustainable design integration and come away with a greater understanding of the built environment's role in communities. Hosted by Committee on Design (COD).

    Learning objectives

    After attending this program, participants will be able to:

    • Investigate approaches that blend and translate sustainable goals into projects of design excellence.
    • Be inspired by projects that are a vehicle for connectivity and equity in communities and educational environments.
    • Learn approaches to the technical challenges of cost, constructability, and sustainability for sustainable models of design excellence.
    • Explore the ways in which architecture can improve health and well-being through built works in the public realm.
