The October kCOTE meeting has been canceled.

Additionally, we will not meet in November but instead encourage all to attend the A’19 MN Conference November 12-15. Watch your email for an announcement of the December kCOTE meeting.


The Knowledge Community on the Environment (KCOTE) works to advance, disseminate, and advocate—to the profession, the building industry, the academy, and the public—design practices that integrate built and natural systems and enhance both the design quality and environmental performance of the built environment. COTE serves as the community and voice on behalf of AIA architects regarding sustainable design and building science and performance.

Co-Chairs: Mike Refsland, AIA and Alan D’Souza, AIA
Staff Liaison: Deanna Christiansen, Hon. AIA MN
Meeting Date: Second Thursday of the month
