Sustainable Building Resources

Advancing a 200-year perspective for the built environment


For more than ten years, the region’s most influential green builders, architects, designers, and their friends and families have gathered to celebrate examples of sustainable construction at the Green Building Slam. This year why not submit your project? We want to hear your inspirational stories, your knowledge (or “lessons learned”?) and your practical know-how.


Up Next! Plugging into the Future: The Challenge and Opportunity of Residential EV Infrastructure will take place 8:00-1:00pm on Sept 17th, 2015, at the Star Center in Tacoma. Our keynote speakers are WA State Representatives Dick Muri (R) and Jake Fey (D), both members of the Electric Vehicle (EV) Caucus, who share our belief that the use of electric vehicles can strengthen Washington’s economy. Join us for this very important conversation - Register Today!

Exhibit Opening Party! "Evolution of Enclosure: The Anatomy of Building Performance"
Aug 06, 2015
We now have the science and techniques to build for comfort, health, and revolutionary efficiency. At the center of it all is the advanced building envelope. Join AIA Portland and builder Hammer & Hand for this exhibit of building praxis, “Evolution of Enclosure: the Anatomy of Building Performance.” The exhibit will explore the building science that guides high performance assemblies, drawing on built projects in Portland Seattle designed by Holst Architecture, Scott | Edwards Architecture, SHED Architecture & Design, and The Miller Hull Partnership. Four full-scale wall assembly cross sections, a suite of building science illustrations, project photography, and an interactive set of high performance building animations will show how buildings can go from net consumers of energy to net producers: part of the climate solution. The exhibit Opening Party will take place at AIA Portland on First Thursday, August 6, 6-8pm, and will include the unveiling of the winning entries of the perFORM 2015 Building Design Competition. Evolution of Enclosure will run through September 10. Don’t miss it!
