2016 has arrived, and it’s time to hit the ground running. To help you get started, we’ve collected some AIA-accredited continuing education opportunities from the past year so that you can pick up a few credits, as well as spark your imagination as you begin another year of creative design.
"A Placemaking Approach to Design": 1 AIA HSW
Dive into the mindsets of today’s forward-thinking designers who have made it their mission to plan sites that serve today’s needs and those of generations to come: a concept known as intelligent urbanism. New York-based architecture firm LEVENBETTS, Australian landscape architecture and urban design firm McGregor Coxall, and University of Pennsylvania graduate student and Richard Diehl Scholarship Award winner Diego Bermudez have all created projects that are perfect examples of this design philosophy, which you can explore in this continuing education article from Architectural Record.
“Sustainability, Modular Design, and BIM”: 1 AIA HSW
Written by Peter J. Arsenault, FAIA, NCARB, LEED AP, this Architectural Record article combines industry insight and careful research to map out how sustainability, modular design, and BIM have emerged as prevalent concepts among architects. Learn how these trends are shaping the built environment and its relationship with the world through case studies featuring Bearth & Deplazes Architekten AG and ETH Zürich, Resolution: 4 Architecture, Kipnis Architecture + Planning, and Platane Architecture, and earn 1 AIA HSW along the way.
