UMN School of Architecture Complexity: Dutch and American Housing Symposium (Fri. 6 Oct, 2017 12:00 am - Sun. 8 Oct, 2017 1:00 am)

dutch-1000

This fall, the School of Architecture is hosting the symposium “Complexity: Dutch and American Housing.” Based on the book, Complex Housing: Designing for Density by Professor Julia Robinson, the symposium is designed to expose a select American audience to the values and ideas inherent in Dutch Complex Housing—a highly successful model of housing development.

WHEN: Friday, October 6 through Sunday, October 8, 2017

WHERE: Rapson Hall, University of Minnesota, 89 Church Street SE (East Bank), Minneapolis, MN

RSVP: Registration for the symposium is now open. To register, visit z.umn.edu/complexitysymposium.

After a half-century of experimentation in social, mixed-use, and mixed-occupancy housing, America is still looking for a better model of housing development. Based on the book Complex Housing: Designing for Density by Professor Julia Robinson, FAIA, “Complexity: Dutch and American Housing” will explore the values inherent in Dutch Complex Housing and how to apply these values to American housing developments.

At the symposium 12 Dutch presenters, representing four projects, will showcase best housing practices governing the development of Dutch housing. In return, local politicians, designers, developers, and builders will host field trips to significant housing projects in the Twin Cities. By providing an opportunity for substantive exchange between housing professionals from the Netherlands and the United States, the symposium aims to help both groups develop new housing practices for each country.

An exhibition, “Complex Housing: Designing for Density,” will also run concurrently at the Goldstein Museum of Design from September 2, 2017 through January 9, 2018.

Rain Down the Drain? Not Today! The State of Rainwater Harvesting in Minnesota (Tue. 10 Oct, 2017 11:30 am - 1:00 pm)

usgbc-rain-down-the-drain

Rain Down the Drain? Not Today! The State of Rainwater Harvesting in Minnesota.

Rainwater harvesting and water conservation is continuing to become more important, often challenging and increasingly vital for making our communities more sustainable for the long term. In 2016, the State of Minnesota made an amendment to the Minnesota Plumbing Code to allow for rainwater harvesting for indoor purposes like flushing toilets and other non-potable uses. This presentation will cover the recent State of Minnesota regulatory changes, opportunities for harvesting rainwater, the impacts on stormwater management and how this relates to LEED and SITES certification. For a case study, we will cover the project goals, stakeholders, challenges, lessons learned and implementation of the rainwater harvesting system at CHS Field, which has won several local, state and national awards for sustainable design and the innovative rainwater harvesting system. In addition, we will highlight other local rainwater harvesting projects that are under construction or in design. Finally, I will outline the opportunities for rainwater harvesting to help obtain LEED v4 and SITES v2 Credits.

This program qualifies for 1 GBCI LEED Specific, 1 GBCI SITES Specific, and 1 AIA LU/HSW Continuing Education Unit.

Presenters:
Mitchell Cookas, ASLA, LEED GA, Vice President & Director of Sustainability, Solution Blue.
