Architects are in the business of creating healthy and livable cities and communities. In the United States, buildings (114 million households and more than 4.7 million commercial buildings) account for almost 40 percent of total U.S. energy use and associated CO2 emissions, and for 72 percent of U.S. electricity use (USDE).
The architecture community is on the front line addressing Climate Change in a meaningful way. For everyone, we believe this is THE challenge and opportunity of our time.
The Architects Advocate collaboration reinforces all architects’ commitment to designing prosperous and verdant communities, and securing the future for coming generations through architecture.
