Special Issue: National Science Foundation Workshop on Architecture and Engineering of Sustainable Buildings
The Perkins+Will Research Journal is a peer-reviewed research journal dedicated to documenting and presenting practice-related research associated with buildings and their environments. This is the ninth issue, specially dedicated to documenting the outcomes of the 2nd Workshop on Architecture and Engineering of Sustainable Buildings, sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF). This two-day workshop was organized by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Perkins+Will and was held at the Perkins+Will Chicago office on July 26 and 27, 2012. The event brought together invited participants from different universities, design/architectural and engineering firms, and national laboratories, representing multidisciplinary and multi-faceted perspectives on sustainability issues relating to buildings and urban design. This special issue includes articles that capture the essence of the workshop and a summary of the workshop outcomes, as well as identified research gaps and next steps to advance the current state of knowledge and promote design and construction of next-generation sustainable, high-performance buildings and cities.
