The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Committee on the Environment (COTE) is announcing this year’s recipients for its highest honor—the COTE Top Ten Awards. Complete details for each awarded project are available on AIA's website.
COTE bestows the award annually on 10 design projects that have expertly integrated design excellence with cutting-edge performance in several key areas. In order to be eligible, project submissions are required to demonstrate alignment with COTE’s rigorous criteria for 10 measures that include social, economic, and ecological values. The five-member jury evaluates each project submission based on a cross-section of the 10 metrics balanced with the holistic approach to the design.
Award recipients will be honored in June at the AIA’s Conference on Architecture in New York City.
