Ethics and the Environment: Understanding the Architect’s Intent, Process, and the Impact on Others

12:00 PM - 01:00 PM

The topic of ethics has never been more prevalent for today’s architects, especially in our obligation to the environment. With new data constantly published about the human toll on today’s world, the construction industry must take purposeful steps to not only reduce the environmental impact in the building process but also promote a sustainable design that will last for generations.

This one-hour presentation will review the AIA Code of Ethics including the obligations to the environment. We’ll discuss how our intent, the design and building process, and all impacted stakeholders should be considered to meet our ethical obligations. Five key areas will be addressed including energy, water, materials, ecosystem, and climate change. We’ll have an open discussion about the influences that affect our decisions in these five areas and how considering our intent, process, and those involved can shape our own code of ethics.
