Mission Statement February 12, 2010

Posted by 2030arch in Mission + Current Projects.

The 2030 challenge is a dedication to the education and practice of sustainable green architecture with the ultimate goal of carbon neutral buildings by the year 2030. Buildings produce 40% of the earth’s carbon footprint and it is our duty as future architects/designers to learn the strategies we can employ to reduce this waste. Any student involved in this group would be making a commitment during their studies and future practice to attain the goals of the 2030 challenge.

The 2030 group would attain these goals through:

  • A discussion group that examines current topics, studio projects, and precedent case studies about the 2030 challenge and LEED certified projects
  • Presentations by local architects about projected and built LEED projects
  • Student Competitions involved in Sustainable Design
  • Development of a 2030 proposal for 601 Brannan that would include long term goals as well as short term solutions
  • Design strategies for the Solar Decathlon
  • A Student operated LEED study group that will prepare students interested in associate LEED certification prior to graduation
