AIA|LA's Architecture Month

 

The AIA Los Angeles is hosting Architecture Month in October this year, focusing on “Designing Healthier Lifestyles.” Events aim to educate the public about architecture and architects, and to encourage public-interest and professional groups to come together to celebrate the built environment.

Among the events will be an AIA|LA design symposium on improving the health impacts of the built environment. In this conference supported by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and the Los Angeles Department of City Planning, experts in health and design will discuss ways to build communities promoting physical activity and healthier lifestyles. As health professionals consider new design features, architects and designers will explore ways to broaden their range of professional services and become experts in preventative care. They will identify opportunities for greater collaboration and determine methods of applying urban planning in the current health crisis.

Top Ten Green Buildings of 2011

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) and its Committee on the Environment (COTE) have selected the top ten examples of sustainable architecture and green design solutions that protect and enhance the environment.  The projects will be honored at the AIA 2011 National Convention and Design Exposition in New Orleans.

The COTE Top Ten Green Projects program, now in its 15th year, is the profession's best known recognition program for sustainable design excellence.  The program celebrates projects that are the result of a thoroughly integrated approach to architecture, natural systems and technology.  They make a positive contribution to their communities, improve comfort for building occupants and reduce environmental impacts through strategies such as reuse of existing structures, connection to transit systems, low-impact and regenerative site development, energy and water conservation, use of sustainable or renewable construction materials, and design that improves indoor air quality.

The 2011 COTE Top Ten Green Projects jury includes: Joshua W. Aidlin, AIA, Aidlin Darling Design; Mary Guzowski, University of Minnesota School of Architecture; Kevin Kampschroer, General Services Administration, Office of Federal High-Performance Green Buildings; Mary Ann Lazarus, AIA LEED AP, HOK; Jennifer Sanguinetti, P.E. LEED AP, Smart Buildings & Energy Management, BC Housing; and Lauren Yarmuth, LEED AP, YRG New York.
