The 2030 Palette is here- almost

Posted by on 7/22/13 at 07:31pm

The folks over at Architecture 2030 are in the process debuting another great idea: the 2030 Palette. The 2030 Palette is an interactive web platform containing a set of principles and actions for the planning and design of sustainable and resilient buildings and communities worldwide. In other words, it’s a highly organized and interactive tool to help designers learn sustainable practices. The site is full of captivating diagrams and inspiring precedents organized by scale.

The site is organized into five primarily swatches which are determined by scale from region to building. From there each swatch is further categorized into topics which range from land use to heating and cooling to lighting. Each topic area in a swatch clearly outlines basic principles, rules of thumb, related swatches, and precedents from all around the world.

The 2030 Palette is still in its beta phase and therefore will be admitting users to the site on a rolling basis. As a result, it may take a few days or weeks to gain access to the site but don’t be deterred, it’s worth it! Oh yeah, and it’s totally free!
