Ten students who tackled this year’s challenge of carbon-neutral design while also addressing climate change adaptability and resilience in the built environment have been named recipients of the 2018 INNOVATION 2030/COTE Top Ten for Students design competition.
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Committee on the Environment (COTE) announced the recipients of its Top Ten Awards, celebrating projects that successfully integrate innovative design alongside high performance. Now in its 21st year, the award program recognizes projects that meet COTE’s criteria for social, economic, and ecological value.

Recent advancements in technology have resulted in paints offering unexpected benefits such as killing harmful pathogens on coated surfaces as well as helping reduce odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in a space.
