The July/August edition of ECO-STRUCTURE, a magazine of the American Institute of Architects, featured the AIA/COTE Top Ten Green Projects in it’s article ‘Making Their Mark’.
High Tech High Chula Vista, among the other 9 winning projects, were showcased in the magazine as “working examples of the power of a thoroughly integrated approach to architecture, natural systems, and technology.”
For those of you unfamiliar with COTE (Committee on the Environment), their mission statement (as extracted from AIA’s website) is “… to advance, disseminate, and advocate—to the profession, the building industry, the academy, and the public—design practices that integrate built and natural systems and enhance both the design quality and environmental performance of the built environment. COTE serves as the community and voice on behalf of AIA architects regarding sustainable design and building science and performance.”
We’re very proud to have received the AIA/COTE award this year, and find ourselves in great company!
