The AIA COTE (Committee on the Environment) Top Ten Awards is the industry’s best-known awards program for sustainable design excellence. Each year, only ten innovative projects earn the prize for setting the standard in design and sustainability.
The Exploratorium (EHDD), Jacobs Hall at UC Berkeley (LMS) and West Berkeley Library (HED) are all 2016 COTE Top Ten winners, and we’ve asked the CLIENTS to come talk about these award-winning projects from their point of view. Join us for our monthly program as a selection of owners and clients from these projects present and discuss how the architecture and design of the project affects, supports, advances and represents their work and the mission of their program. A wine and cheese reception follows the panel presentation.
- Susan Schwartzenberg, Senior Artist, The Exploratorium
The Exploratorium: Located in San Francisco, the Exploratorium is a public learning laboratory exploring the world through science, art and human perception. The museum creates tools and experiences that help attendees become an active explorer: hundreds of explore-for-yourself exhibits, a website with over 50,000 pages of content, film screenings, evening art and science events for adults, and much more.
- Heidi Dolamore, Director of Library Services, City of Berkeley, on the West Berkeley Library and Elliot Warren, Deputy Director, City of Berkeley, on the West Berkeley Library
West Berkeley Library: Part of the Berkeley Public Library System, the West Berkeley Library is the first Net Zero Public Library in California. In 2016 they became a recipient of the prestigious COTE Top Ten Award.
- Emily Rice, Director of Programs & Operations, Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation
The Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation is UC Berkeley’s interdisciplinary hub for learning and making at the intersection of design and technology. From their home in Berkeley’s College of Engineering, they extend broadly across campus, serving as a welcoming hub: engineers, artists, and makers of all kinds can gather and collaborate.
