COTE Houston Highlights

AIA Houston’s Committee on the Environment is seeking submissions to be featured in the new ‘COTE Houston Highlights’ web publication. Much like the AIA’s COTE Top Ten, Houston Highlights will showcase local projects that exemplify an integrated approach using architecture, natural systems, and technology to provide innovative solutions that protect and enhance the environment. AIA Houston member architects, designers, and architecture firms are invited to contribute in any of the following areas:

Presentation of your own recent building, development, or renovation project in the Houston area.

Case Studies
Case study of a new project that gives an in-depth analysis of the design and sustainable systems used.

Innovative use of a product or process.

Opinion/commentary articles on current affairs and policies that affect Houston’s environmental development. 

If interested in showcasing your work, you may submit your project for review in the form of a 400 word statement and up to three (3) 300 dpi images. Please email all submissions to Rhonda Lowe at All submissions are due by June 5, 2017.
