The AIA Materials Matter Series empowers architects to become advocates for materials transparency, and in doing so, encourages the design of healthier, greener, more prosperous and more equitable buildings. This popular five-session series has been hosted across the country in Portland, Dallas, Philadelphia, Seattle and now — Denver!
This series will equip you with strategies for assessing and selecting healthy, sustainable materials. Sessions will delve into the impact of materials on the environment and human health, the tools and data available for assessing and prioritizing materials and strategies for integrating informed decision-making into projects and practice.
