aia_logo_redThe American Institute of Architects (AIA) has approved 17 sessions at SOLAR 2013 for learning-unit (LU) credits. The sessions are all part of SOLAR 2013′s Passive Solar Conference.

An AIA member can earn up to 13.5 AIA Learning Units by attending the full conference (4.5 per day, 3 sessions).

“By attending, an architect can come up to speed on the state of the art in solar and sustainable design, and get all the required AIA Learning Unit credits for an entire year,” said David Panich, chair of the Solar Buildings Division at the American Solar Energy Society.

The SOLAR 2013 schedule includes forums and technical sessions highlighting topics ranging from Active Solar to Zero-Net-Energy, and everything in-between, including:

  • Building Integrated Solar Technologies
  • The Solar Side of Zero-Net Energy
  • Passive House” design and performance
  • Daylighting Design
  • Building Performance Modeling and Design Tools
  • Solar Access and Zoning

Plus, this year’s Emerging Architecture keynote lecture will be presented by Travis Price, FAIA on “The Mythic Modern:  mythology, ecology and technology..the spirit of place”.  Join other architects and solar professionals after the lecture at the Pratt Street Ale House for a special Passive Solar social and networking party.
