Last summer, the AIA Board of Directors approved a resolution to “declare an urgent climate imperative for carbon reduction.” AIA National is establishing goals to support mitigation and adaptation using the tenets of the comprehensive and holistic COTE Top 10 Toolkit, now known as the Framework for Design Excellence.
The session will use a real life example and go through each section.
The Framework for Design Excellence is a resource, accessible to all architects, that closes the information gap to designing high performing, equitable, beautiful buildings. The Toolkit is designed to provide relevant, general guidance to architects incorporating deep green principles from the beginning of every project.
This year, the Maryland Chapters of AIA, including AIA Baltimore, will be phasing in 5 of the COTE Top 10 measures into the Excellence in Design Awards for all submissions.

The presenters will be Ursula Del Castillo and Rudy Schaar, COTE+R co-chairs; Ben Roush, Principal at FSi engineers; and Lisa Ferretto, Director of Sustainability at Hord Coplan Macht.
