Inspiring sustainable, resilient, and inclusive design

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 Framework for Design Excellence 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 Framework 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.
