The AIA Committee on the Environment presents the COTE Top Ten Awards, the industry’s best-known award program for sustainable design excellence. Each year, ten innovative projects are recognized for their integration of design excellence with environmental performance.
Until 2017, the COTE Top Ten award recognized ten projects based largely on predicted performance, while award recipients from previous years were eligible to submit post-occupancy data and narratives to be recognized with a single COTE Top Ten Plus award. In 2017, these separate tracks were merged: The ‘Plus’ designation will denote projects with exemplary actual performance and post-occupancy lessons. There will be only ten award recipients total, but any number of the ten may receive the COTE Top Ten Plus designation. Previous COTE Top Ten award recipients are ineligible to submit. Please review our 2021 COTE Top Ten Call For Entries to review the entry criteria.
Is it your first time submitting? Watch the recording of our webinar discussing the processes and documentation that support a successful submission.
