The AIA Pittsburgh Committee on the Environment (CoTE) is excited to launch the 2021 Measures for Design Excellence Education Series!
The Framework for Design Excellence represents the defining principles of good design in the 21st century. Comprised of 10 principles and accompanied by searching questions, the Framework seeks to inform progress toward a zero carbon, equitable, resilient, and healthy built environment. These are to be thoughtfully considered by designer and client at the initiation of every project and incorporated into the work as appropriate to the project scope. The Framework is intended to be accessible and relevant for every architect, every client, and every project, regardless of size, typology, or aspiration.
AIA Pittsburgh’s Committee on The Environment has put together 3 seminars to help our members understand how to incorporate these principles in the projects you are currently working on. Join us for the following sessions on Design Excellence:
