As designers of the built environment, our work has tremendous influence on the human experience and the planet. AIA CNY C.O.T.E. works to advance the positive impact of buildings on people and the environment. Core objectives include: improving health and human experience through design, promoting design practices integrating built and natural systems to enhance both design quality and performance of the built environment, and advocating policies and design practices to improve energy conservation, reduce carbon emissions and facilitate healthy, prosperous local communities. Members seek to engage in collaborative dialogs between designers, manufacturers, building owners, contractors, government officials, researchers, and educators throughout our region.

Please join our monthly meetings on the First Tuesday of every Month.
