A new website and a national rollout for the AIA+2030 Professional Series™
Architecture 2030 and the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Seattle have unveiled a nationwide program to prepare architects and designers for the new energy future.
The AIA+2030 Professional Series is coming to seven major AIA chapters across the country in 2011 in order to provide critical training for building design professionals on meeting the 2030 Challenge targets.
The program, which was developed by AIA Seattle and Architecture 2030 in partnership with BetterBricks and the City of Seattle, has already enjoyed enormous success in Seattle, with sold-out sessions in 2009 and 2010. In 2011, the series will be offered in Seattle again, along with Atlanta, Denver, Idaho, Houston, Portland, and Washington, D.C.
“Together we share a commitment to helping our members make a difference through good design. Nowhere is this more important than in the area of energy and greenhouse gas reduction.”
Executive Director, AIA Seattle
The Series consists of 10, four-hour sessions taught by regional design professionals and educators, each exploring the various design strategies and technological applications needed to meet the 2030 Challenge targets and create environmentally resilient buildings. Professionals leave with practical information on designing next-generation buildings, which in turn provides firms with the skills needed to compete for federal, state, and local projects.
“The AIA+2030 Professional Series training is critical for architects and designers. Building Sector professionals need the tools to implement the 2030 Challenge targets because its coming and its coming fast.”
Founder and Executive Director, Architecture 2030
AIA Denver and AIA Portland will inaugurate the rollout, launching their series in January 2011. To learn more, visit www.aiaplus2030.org.

“One of the most significant and usable workshop programs I have seen so far for actually incorporating the specifics of Architecture 2030 into our work.”
