  • Opening Plenary: Getting Good Projects Done

    Passive House Massachusetts SymposiumJana Silsby AIA, LEED AP October 25, 2017, Boston, MA

    The earliest Passive House and net-zero projects were almost exclusively single-family homes. As the buildings get bigger and the uses more varied, the challenges and hurdles increase exponentially. Our opening plenary will showcase path-breaking large-scale projects in Massachusetts. Jana Silsby will present the MLK School in Cambridge as case study, and Ellen Watts will present an overview of a range of projects, from the Field Headquarters of the Division of Fisheries and Wildlife in Westborough to Clark University’s Liberal Education & Effective Practice (LEEP) Center. Finally, Seth Federspiel will present a vision of what can happen when a whole municipality – not just an individual building – aims to be high-performance. The plenary will close with a discussion among the presenters, and opportunity for question and answer with the attendees.

  • Adding Voice to the LA Planning Story: From the Inside Out

    Los Angeles Region Planning History Group Colloquium XIVVaughan Davies ISAA October 28, 2017, San Marino, CA

    Who worked for change from within the organized profession, by assuming a role that had previously been available only to others, and not at all to certain groups? How did women, planners of color and LGBTQ planners build their own places within the established profession?      

    "Adding Voices to the LA Planning Story" will begin to tell some of the many stories missing from the mainstream narrative about the region. This colloquium will bring together key individuals who helped transform the practice of planning here, alongside current practitioners and community leaders. They will share insights and experiences on different facets of community building, including the making and implementing of plans for diverse local communities.

  • Parallels of CTE, PBL and STEM at Work in Education

    LearningSCAPES: 2017 AIA/CES ConferenceRobert Bell AIA, ALEP, LEED AP BD+C October 29, 2017, Atlanta, GA

    Once thought of as obsolescent, Career and Technical Education (CTE) is experiencing a resurgence in the 21st Century. And, in contrast to the general perception of CTE as exclusively a direct pathway to employment, over 75% of students served by these schools in Massachusetts, as an example, are headed to post-secondary education. Evidence shows that students excel in settings that emphasize Project-Based Learning (PBL) and offer a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)-infused curriculum and, that the skills learned in CTE programs help students become life-long learners. Participants will explore how these parallel pedagogies were envisioned, prioritized and planned into the Essex Technical High School, a level-1 high performing school in Massachusetts, creating a flexible and collaborative environment that encourages student success. The school features an innovative hybrid program derived from the combination of a technical school and an agricultural school that were merged into a single new school of themed academies. The school offers professional-quality, hands-on learning environments that encourage students to become active participants in their education and incorporates a number of inventive strategies for day to day and long term flexibility and adaptability. Attendees will take part in a workshop-style format that will be used to examine 21st Century Learning Skills, engage participants in developing CTE Learning Goals and align them with Design Patterns that will be prioritized. We will observe the group's work and compare the priorities with those that were identified in the Visioning and Planning of Essex Tech.

    For this afternoon education session (123-F), Principal Dan Cinelli will be joined by key leaders from our partners at Abe's Garden and Integrace Copper Ridge to discuss how designing for memory care and neurocognitive support has evolved in recent years. Attendees will hear about early adopters in the field who are providing dementia-care programs that "holistically support" the entire family within the existing campus framework; examine the organizational culture and business mindset needed to create a truly integrated dementia community; and discuss ways that LeadingAge members can replicate similar dementia programs, including the dementia village concept, in their communities.

  • Best Practices for Interior Finish and Furnishing Specification in K12 Educational Environments

    NeoCon EastKaren Gioconda NCIDQ, LEED AP ID+C; Katie Herber LEED AP ID+C, ND, EDAC; and Heather Jauregui LEED AP BD+C, O+M, CPHC November 16, 2017, Philadelphia, PA

    K-12 Schools are at the heart of every community and serve an incredibly important population – our children. The exterior architecture of these civic buildings is carefully considered. However, students most frequently interact directly with the interior environment. Interior finishes and furnishings are often specified in the later stages of the design process and are the first items to be value-engineered. Material health is critical to the success of a K-12 learning environment. This seminar will describe the impact that material health of interior finishes and furniture has on students, identify best practices related to the interior specifications and provide suggestions on how to educate team members about the importance and prioritization of material health. A case study will be presented to connect how best practices can help schools achieve their goals for students and their facilities.
