The Committee on Architecture for Education (CAE) is a Knowledge Community of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). We are a large and active group of over 10,000 architects and allied professionals concerned with the quality and design of all types of educational, cultural, and recreational facilities that promote lifelong learning in safe, welcoming and equitable environments. The CAE’s mission is to foster innovative and collaborative design of educational facilities and to heighten public awareness on the importance of learning environments.
Educational facilities have frequently been leaders in the implementation of energy efficient and sustainable practices across the world. This is due to the long ownership of such facilities and the alignment with the educational mission. And yet not all educational buildings are as sustainable or energy efficient as we would wish. Obstacles such as construction cost, maintenance procedures, and political pressure limit adoption. This panel discussion will bring together experts from Catalonia, Germany, and North America to compare and contrast approaches to sustainability and education in different parts of the world.
