COTE is working on planning 2023 events.  Please visit the following Google Form if you’d like to suggest buildings for site tours:  

The COTE’s Framework for Design Excellence Education Series kicked off with its first session: PEOPLE . The focus: how architects can use the Framework to highlight the sustainability strengths of their projects, envision and design a new generation of buildings, and develop a new way of talking about the work they are already doing.

The AIA Pittsburgh CoTE Education Series continued with its second seminar: PLACE. A panel of experts addressed the next 3 design measures in the Framework for Design Excellence – Design for Integration, Discovery, and Change – and spoke to how focusing on these measures impacts a building’s connection to its site, occupants, and future.

The CoTE Education Series concluded with its third seminar, PLANET. A panel of experts addressed the final 4 design measures in the Framework for Design Excellence – Design for Ecosystems, Water, Energy, and Resources.
