The AIA COTE® Top Ten Toolkit
The Forge Prize
A framework for beautiful, high-performance buildings
The AIA COTE® Top Ten Toolkit helps architecture firms make improvements in the performance of their projects by providing curated, concise, and effective sustainability strategies. Based on the COTE® Top Ten measures, the toolkit combines and consolidates the most current, useful, and objective resources for architects, facilitating a more deeply integrated, visually rich design solution.
The Forge Prize recognizes innovation in the use of steel. Established by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), the prize invites designers to submit proposals for visionary designs that embrace steel as the primary structural component. The Forge Prize is organized by the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture(ACSA) and is intended to engage designers in developing imaginative designs that bolster steel as the 21st century building material of choice through a two-stage design challenge, culminating with a public announcement event of winners in Summer 2019.
