2030 Palette Unveiled at Greenbuild
Architecture 2030 offered a sneak peek of its newest tool at the Vision 2020 session at Greenbuild.
- The 2030 Palette, a free, online framework for the design of sustainable and resilient built environments, will be released by Architecture 2030 in February. Francesa Desmarais provided a sneak preview of the site at last week's Vision 2020 session at Greenbuild.
- She described what the site would look like and showed attendees how it would function. It will be a highly visual program containing a complete range of planning, infrastructure, and building design strategies and principles, including design-driven renewable energy applications for various climates and cultures that meet or exceed the targets of the 2030 Challenge.
- The Palette will be structured as a visual network of interrelated elements. Each element contains a written rule or recommendation, images and graphics representing the physical application of the rule, and more detailed information.
- Users will be able to explore region-specific environmental/cultural conditions and optimize design efforts with proven strategies, systems, and actions.
- In the future, the tool will be interactive.
