Live Course: Toolkit Learning Live: Excellence by Design in the Era of Climate Change

Register for this course and learn more about the process of designing high-performing, resilient, beautiful buildings.


Climate change is the fundamental design problem of our time, and architects need the skills to help make beautiful, resilient, high performing buildings. However, limited access to quality information that is both usable and concise is a major barrier to the universal adoption of sustainable design. The recently released AIA COTE® Top Ten Toolkit seeks to close this information gap and make sustainable design strategies accessible to all architects through a framework that can guide the design of all projects, large or small, with a budget high or low, located in Schenectady or San Diego. The Toolkit identifies patterns that emerge in projects that achieve both design excellence and exceptional performance, and includes a variety of high-impact, low-cost strategies that can elevate the quality and outcomes of any project.

Date: April 10, 2019 at 2pm ET.
