Sustainability is one of AIA’s top priorities and climate change is everyone’s concern, crossing state and regional boundaries. This conference will seek to benchmark how we are doing at meeting the Architecture 2030 goals and what still needs to be done. Legislation, Codes/Metrics, Planning, Buildings, and Tectonics are among the tracks to be covered.

Speakers, Sponsors, and Exhibitors are being organized now, interested in being a part of ECG –

In conjunction with East Coast Green, we are proud to co-host the AIA-NJ annual Design Conference. Projects will be selected in categories from residential to historic preservation. For the second year there will also be a category for best Sustainable project.

Extend your visit another day, and take part in a series of all day USGBC-NJ LEED pre-conference workshops.

Thoughtful project. I’ve often wondered why we need a new bridge? Why was it not possible to fix the old one. We know how it behaves structurally already and fixing it would still be much cheaper and sustainable than building new. The blog below shows some more details and spatial connections.


I encourage all to check out more work by Rael-San Fratello- the architects for the Bay Bridge Repurposing Project
Check out the “Planter Brick”
