Now in its third year, the AIA Pennsylvania Architectural Excellence COTE Awards celebrates buildings that have exhibited excellence in the AIA Framework for Design Excellence measures that indicate how buildings perform for the health and wellness of the occupants, communities, and the environment they serve.

The opt-in program provides an opportunity for projects entered in the design awards to be considered for a COTE Award with the completion of the “Framework for Design Excellence Assessment.” The assessment’s criteria is identical to the AIA Philadelphia “Sustainability Form,” required for entry into the AIA Philadelphia Design Awards.

This session will provide a concise introduction to the overall framework and walk-through of the assessment to help entrants easily provide the information for any project. The Framework includes 10 “Measures” from Integration to Discovery. The presentation will be illustrated with recent national and local design award-winning projects.

The webinar is open to all, with a focus on those involved in preparing awards submissions for both the state awards program and the local AIA Philadelphia program. It will be led by Brian Smiley, Jonathan Weiss, and Sherman Aronson, members of the Committee on the Environment, AIA Philadelphia, and AIA Pennsylvania.
