In November, Kerry Dietz joined a team of architects from around the country for a workshop on sustainable design ideas for Lihue County in Kauai, Hawaii.
The Sustainable Design Assessment Team (SDAT) program, an American Institute of Architects initiative, aims to provide broad assessments to help frame future policies and sustainability solutions. The program in Kauai featured presentations on five main areas — land use and smart growth, transportation and transit, housing affordability, economic development and renewable energy — in setting up a template for Lihue’s future. Dietz was an advisor for the affordable housing portion of the program.
