Examine AIA preservation tools, community and design assistance programs and sustainability initiatives in relation to the AIA Strategic Plan and applicability to everyday practice, with focus on existing buildings and adaptive-reuse projects; identify the relationship of and differences between sustainable rating systems and green building codes in order to better understand the value of each as tools and guidelines to improve architectural design and the quality of the built environment; acquire an enhanced perspective of the International Green Construction Code [IgCC] and its implications for the future of sustainable design practice in general and its applications for the re-design of existing buildings and sites; and explore, using case studies and on-site investigation, the best practices in neighborhood redevelopment, historic preservation and sustainability strategies as applied to and incorporated within actual building and community development projects and demonstrate how these real-life examples can serve to guide decision making with future projects.
