RISING21 Symposium : Day 2
November 12, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm$15.00 – $45.00
A Symposium on Climate,
Equity, Energy Efficiency
& Carbon-Neutral Design
RISING21 is a practical symposium presented by the AIA New Orleans 2030 Committee.
A 2-day Virtual event— 4 hours per day on Thursday and Friday November 11-12— will cover a range of pressing climate-change issues and cutting-edge solutions including:
- Overview of energy efficiency practices, timeline and targets, net-zero design practices, and material considerations.
- Cross-disciplinary working groups
- Case Studies
- Introduction of emerging tools that test, measure and verify design performance
We invite architects, MEP professionals and all city/urban planners to embrace these challenges and seek solutions through the RISING21 symposium.
IN-PERSON HAPPY HOUR: Woodward Design + Build
We’re winning slowly. How do we win faster?
health care than ever before, and carbon emissions in many countries are falling. We’re winning. But climate change and species loss is accelerating. We have to bring about the transformation to a sustainable world faster–and architects are in a surprisingly powerful place, able to nudge the aim of the giant fire hose of money spent each year on the built environment in ways that
make the world more healthy and more just, while drastically lowering Carbon emissions. Let’s go!

Part III: Panel 2
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! MATERIALS MATTER: EMBODIED CARBON
Interface & Materials CAN
Embodied carbon in interiors and making material choices for healthier buildings, people, and environment.
Embodied carbon of structural decisions with a focus on mass timber
Building with wood, it’s viability, cost, and embodied carbon benefits as compared to other structural materials.
