2016 Conference Theme

 

SMART DESIGN:
the intersection of art, architecture, and sustainability

This year’s conference will explore how art and the principles of sustainable design can enrich the classic architectural qualities as described by the ancient Roman architect Vitruvius: firmitas, utilitas, and venustas, which roughly translate to durability, utility, and beauty.

firmitas, including materials, human health, lifecycle perspectives, and structures;
utilitas, including building systems, comfort, and energy and resource use;
venustas, including public art, biomimicry, and site design.
