Is the AIA doing enough to promote sustainable design?

We’re going to find out….. I am immensely honored to be selected by the AIA President as a member of the newly formed Sustainability and Health Advisory Committee. The committee consists of some amazing talent from around the sustainable industry. These individuals have all been my mentors and inspiration for the past 8 years and I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with them on the future of sustainable education and training at the AIA. Although sustainability is becoming more and more of a mainstream design process, as an industry, we are not achieving our goals and we have A LOT of work to do.

I know that the following group of individuals, under the leadership of Mary Ann Lazarus FAIA, will help the AIA take sustainable design integration to a level that is needed for a truly sustainable future.

Elizabeth del Monte, FAIA
Carl Elefante, FAIA
Bill Leddy, AIA
Vivian Loftness, FAIA
Rico Quirindogo, AIA
Colin Rohlfing, Assoc. AIA
