Comprised of 10 principles, the Framework seeks to inform progress toward a zero-carbon, equitable, resilient, and healthy built environment.The Framework is intended to be accessible and relevant for every architect, every client, and every project, regardless of size, typology, or aspiration.Last year, as an introduction to the Framework, AIA Northern Virginia focused on three of the ten measures. This year we are requiring each project narrative address the following measures: As part of the awards submission, firms are required to provide information on project design and performance based on these tenmeasures. Projects exemplifying the AIA's Framework forDesign Excellence may be considered for a Jurors' Citationfor Responsible Design. Learn more here.
