The 2030 Palette

The 2030 Palette

The 2030 Palette is an interactive web platform created by architect Ed Marzria as a reaction to the fact that the building industry is accountable for nearly 50% of man-made greenhouse emissions. The 2030 Palette contains a set of principles and actions for the planning and design of sustainable and resilient buildings and communities worldwide.

A description from the site: “Since planning and designing the built environment is primarily a visual activity, the 2030 Palette is structured as a visual network of interrelated elements called Swatches. Swatches present highly complex and multi-dimensional information in a readily accessible format organized by category – Region, City/Town, District, Site and Building. Each Swatch contains a written recommendation, rule-of-thumb, images and graphics representing the physical application of the recommendation, as well as more detailed information for its successful application.”

The 2030 Palette is a very interesting way to continue the conversation on green building, a way to share and collect information which can be implemented for sustainable development. Well worth keeping an eye on it as it evolves!

89 South Senior Living Community Pittsfield, MA.

Originally built in 1888 as the Berkshire County Home for Aged Women, the design entailed restoring and replicating prominent historic details, which pay homage to the Richardsonian Romanesque architecture, while incorporating a new transitional style that boasts the comforts of multifamily living in the modern age.  The program houses 18 residential units along with shared amenities including dining cafe, reading and fitness and educational uses.

We are all MAKERS with the power to build resilient communities.

Our team had a wonderful time participating in Yo-Yo Ma’s “Day of Action”, where teams of local businesses and organizations united under a single tent to build tables for the community.  The tables are made from local ash trees and inscribed with local responses that complete the phrase “The Berkshires make...”. #yoyoma #dayofaction #community #intheberkshires
