  • How Do You Measure Up? New Ways to Evaluate Project Success

    Getting to Zero National ForumHeather Jauregui, Katie Herber April 18, 2018, Pittsburgh, PA

    High Performance is not only designing a building to reduce the amount of finite resources it draws from our planet, but also designing to improve and support the purpose for which a building is being designed. For a school, this purpose is to provide high quality education for future generations. For residences, it is to support the health and lifestyle of the residents. But how can all of these parameters be measured to get a more holistic picture of a design’s performance? This session will cover the tools that can be used to measure building performance, occupant performance, and ultimately community scale performance to gain this holistic picture of a project’s impact at multiple scales. Attendees will be able to test drive these tools and understand the protocols necessary to get consistent and valuable data.?

  • Building of the Day Tour: The Wharf

    AIA|DC Architecture Month 2018Sarah Watling LEED AP ND April 20, 2018, Washington, DC

    In the 1950s, the District’s Southwest quadrant became the subject of the very first implementation of federally-funded urban renewal in the US. By 1968 these initiatives had already displaced most of the residents and businesses and failed to adequately integrate the neighborhood with the city.

    Today, The Wharf is one of the largest developments on the East Coast. It is a large neighborhood envisioned on a small scale, in which every square foot of space is utilized, mobility and accessibility are prioritized, and a fully activated urban environment extended up to (and beyond) the water’s edge. This once underutilized site, in which only nine businesses and 193,000 square feet of built space occupied 23 acres, will feature 3.2 million square feet of mixed-use development when it is completed in 2021.

    Join AIA|DC and Perkins Eastman's Sarah Watling to explore how The Wharf takes a revolutionary approach to large-scale urban design by bringing the city directly to its waterfront.

  • Centers for Healthy Living: Optimizing Wellness of the Mind, Body, and Spirit

    Environments for Aging Expo & ConferenceClaire Dickey AIA, LEED AP April 22, 2018, Savannah, GA

This session will explain the evolution of CHLs, demonstrate the core elements of the CHL building typology (including programming and design), and identify who is building these facilities and why. See case study examples from both the high-end market and more competitive middle market. Explore the future of CHLs and ways they can drive multi-industry convergence for greater intergenerational success.

  • The Rockaways: Building a Resilient Transit-Oriented Community (Tour)

    A18: AIA Conference on ArchitectureEric C.Y. Fang AIA, LEED AP June 20, 2018, Queens, NY

    Explore the Rockaways, the site of a popular seaside resort in the 1800s. After the site was neglected for decades, large-scale development provided the badly needed capital for infrastructure improvements.

    The mixed-use, mixed-income development Arverne by-the-Sea (Perkins Eastman) was among the first private-public partnerships that not only created new residential communities, but also brought roadway and drainage infrastructure, spurring the economic development of the wider area.

    Join this exciting tour and explore Arverne's resilient design features, which helped it survive Hurricane Sandy. You'll also see post-hurricane improvements, including a new boardwalk (WXY Studio) and comfort buildings (Sage and Coombe Architecture). Boxed lunch included. (ET128a)

    A18: AIA Conference on ArchitectureTheodore Liebman FAIA June 22, 2018, New York, NY

    As global cities address the need for more affordable housing, little attention is paid to how these communities become socially and economically resilient. Amenities, including education, healthcare, retail, and open space are essential, along with civic engagement.
