Inn the Ground by GBD Architects | 2030 Merit Award
November 22, 2023
The 2030 Award celebrates projects that balance exceptional design and forward-thinking energy performance. This award is not just about a few exemplary projects; it is about our community’s commitment to innovative, sustainable architecture and leadership among our design peers.
To be considered for this award, entrants in the Built category could submit energy use data in consideration of this award, using the Climate Impact Calculator*, to capture standard information and compare results against the Architecture 2030 targets.
* This calculator was originally created for the Portland Architecture Awards by Joshua Hatch (Brightworks Sustainability). It was slightly modified by Chris Meek (UW Integrated Design Lab) to adapt it to the AIA Seattle Honor Awards and Alen Mahic (UO Energy Studies in Buildings Lab) for the AIA Oregon Architecture Awards. Special thanks to: John Jennings, Greg Flinders, Michael Gilbride, and Jason Stenson.
