Buildings of Excellence Series
The Buildings of Excellence Competition, developed by NYSERDA, recognizes visionary developers and architects who design, build and renovate beautiful, low-carbon buildings.
The competition supports New York’s Green New Deal, the most aggressive climate change program in the nation that puts New York State on a path to economy wide carbon-neutrality as well as the State’s mandate for an 85 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
NYSERDA announced the Buildings of Excellence Round 2 award recipients in the spring of 2021. The winning teams demonstrated that a low carbon future is beautiful, livable, and 100% possible.
Currently on display at BE-Ex, the Buildings of Excellence exhibit highlights New York’s ambitious climate action objectives.
The exhibit explores various components of New York’s Green New Deal, NYSERDA initiatives, and proof-in-concept case studies demonstrating the feasibility of a zero carbon future.
To view the exhibit, come visit us in downtown Manhattan, 9-5 Monday through Friday.
In partnership with NYSERDA, BE-Ex is hosting a series of gallery talks dedicated to a range of design strategies, building systems, and case studies that provide potential pathways to net-zero building performance.
