CARBON + MATERIALS
2020 AIA/ACSA Intersections Research Conference: CARBON
See the material innovation happening in top architectural research labs across the country and how they’re being implemented in pilot projects. From low-carbon concrete, to algae walls that absorb CO2, to straw-based panels for single and multi-family residential buildings this course presents both high and low-tech solutions to dealing with carbon.
- Discover high-tech and simple low-tech solutions on how to deal with carbon reduction.
- Learn how architecture research labs have designed innovative materials that can be used in projects to reduce carbon dioxide.
- Understand how architecture research creates new materials that help reduce climate change.
- Explore new materials, from leading sustainable design experts, that are being implemented into pilot projects across the country.
