Gulf Coast Green 2020 Symposium 
July 9 & 10, 2020


                                           We're Going Virtual!


After 15 successful years, Gulf Coast Green has proven to be the leading green building conference in the Gulf Coast region.  In addition to a lineup of groundbreaking speakers in the field of sustainability, Gulf Coast Green 2020 Conference continues to bring like-minded green building professionals together to experience next-generation sustainable and resilient building solutions. 


AIA Houston is excited to host its 15th annual Gulf Coast Green Symposium virtually July 9 & 10, 2020!

We recognize that the global pandemic we're experiencing is creating intense challenges for most everyone.  As a result, AIA Houston has decided to move this year's Gulf Coast Green Symposium to be 100% virtual. 

By going virtual, we have an opportunity to expand our engagement to organizations throughout the U.S. This transition is also an opportunity to more fully enact our values and expand on this year's theme, Sustainability + Technology.  We understand that a virtual event isn't quite the same as in-person, but we are confident we can deliver a fantastic conference providing meaningful knowledge and content.

While we will miss the chance to be together-in-person, the safety of our community is a top priority.  We hope you will join us!  Stay tuned for more details to come in the coming weeks. 


2020 Conference Theme: Sustainability + Technology

This year’s conference explores the roles that technology plays in the green building movement.  In different circumstances, technology can serve as savior, enabler, disruptor, connector, and perform many other functions. We welcome presentations related to how technology is currently changing the way we build, how it complements or supersedes traditional green building strategies, and how it might transform the future. We are interested in the impacts of technology across building types and at every scale, from cities to single family residences, from infrastructure to product design. Potential topics include (but should not be limited to) green technologies as they relate to Artificial Intelligence, big data, resilience, smart buildings, construction technologies, building simulation, and public policy challenges.
