Buildings – their construction and their operations – account for over 40% of the world’s energy-related carbon dioxide emissions. Eliminating these emissions is the key to addressing climate change and meeting Paris Climate Agreement targets.
Museums occupy a unique space in the various sectors of building-related energy consumption: with stringent climate controls required to safeguard collections, and typically wide swings in visitor numbers, museums may appear to be poor candidates for the commonly accepted approaches to energy-efficient designs and operations. How do we bring about sustainable museum design and operations?
Join our conversation with two experts in the field, as they provide with insights into the various facets of sustainability, in both the design and operations of a museum.
- Julie Hiromoto, AIA Cote co-chair; Julie will give an overview of the of the AIA Framework for Design Excellence and the COTE Top Ten Awards program
- Chris Pyke, USGBC will discuss the ARC program for existing building reporting
