Sustainability and architectural design now go hand-in-hand thanks to Cal Green; how do projects exceed building code expectations to become sustainable design award winning projects? COTE Top 10 winner Marsha Maytum, FAIA joins 2016 jurors Anne Fougeron, FAIA and Larry Strain, FAIA to discuss a variety of issues around sustainable design excellence, including:

  • In today’s context, can architectural design be excellent if it’s not sustainable?
  • How are the majority of winning projects integrating sustainability into design, and is it seamless?
  • How do firms like Leddy Maytum Stacy, Siegel & Strain Architects, and Fougeron Architecture integrate and track sustainable design in the design process?
  • What do clients value in sustainable design, and how can architects show long-term value to clients when discussing sustainability throughout the scope of the project?

Our speakers will also share lessons learned and and insights on what not to do when submitting projects for design awards. A wine and cheese reception is included with the program.

At the end of this presentation, attendees will…

  1. Be able to state at least two sustainable design elements that are seen in most COTE Top 10 award-winning projects.
