The 2030 Palette, Architecture 2030’s latest catalyst for driving a global transformation towards a low-carbon and resilient built environment, was publicly launched in Philadelphia today at the Greenbuild 2013 Conference.
The 2030 Palette is a free online platform that succinctly puts the principles and actions behind low-carbon and resilient built environments at the fingertips of designers, planners, and builders worldwide.
Over the next twenty years, an area equal to a staggering 3.5 times the entire built environment of the U.S. will be redesigned, reshaped, and rebuilt. How we plan and design the built environment from here on out will determine whether climate change is manageable or catastrophic.
“The 2030 Palette is a powerful tool that helps the architecture, engineering, planning and construction community fill the gap between what we need to do and how to make it happen,” said Architecture 2030 CEO & Founder Edward Mazria.
With stunning graphics and an intuitive user-interface, the 2030 Palette contains the best current information available – carefully curated and complemented by powerful visuals and clear-cut language – to make highly complex principles memorable and accessible.
It also includes features that allow users to develop and share their own content to augment the Palette’s core content, and assemble collections of material customized to their unique project needs.
