Welcome this monthly series on how the AIA sustainability initiative is progressing. If sustainable design is an important aspect of your career or practice, you’ll be interested to know that the Institute is working with a number of external committees and collaborative task groups to help achieve a more sustainable built environment. This column will share insights and information on the newest tools and resources you need to stay ahead of the sustainability curve, build your practice, and educate yourself for 2031 and beyond.

Making “Green” Normal

Reframing the Sustainability Discussion on What's Good, Better, and Less Bad

   


 

       

PAST COLUMNS

Embracing Coopetition
We must help ourselves by helping other architects, and sharing the best and the worst of what we experience, so we can all avoid making similar mistakes as we venture into the all-new world of high-performance design and construction.

Is a Good Building a Cheap Building?
Best-value does not yet seem to have found a meaningful a place in the pro forma’s used to establish most construction budgets. It needs to.

Why Energy Models Don’t Predict Actual Use
If we take the time to embrace this emerging field, we can use energy models for much more than just code compliance.
 

IgCC Education Opportunities
In the coming world of high performance design and construction, a world under CALGreen and the International Green Construction Code, one of the keys to getting architects and engineers to work together successfully is a more collaborative design process.

Sustainability – Can We Evolve?
New code-based emphasis on sustainability will end the green building movement as we know it.

Integrating Sustainability and Design for the Future (and Today)
 If sustainable design is an important aspect of your career or practice, you’ll be interested to know that we are working with a number of external committees and collaborative task groups to help achieve a more sustainable built environment.
