The 2017 Sustainable Building Award recipients will be highlighted during a photography exhibit titled “The Art of Sustainable Building.”

The exhibit will be available for public viewing at the Flagstaff Pulliam Airport from July 19 – Aug. 18 and other locations to follow.

“The Art of Sustainable Building” theme was chosen to express the importance of aesthetics to sustainability. Included in the display are photographs of the projects, information about their sustainable features, as well as general information about visually aesthetic elements.

The 19 projects displayed include passive solar design, energy and water efficient systems and appliances, greywater and rainwater systems, and construction methods such as insulated concrete forms and straw bale. The artwork displays the aesthetics of the certified projects while providing sustainability education.   

The Flagstaff Pulliam Airport was chosen as a location due to its on-going commitment to sustainability. The Airport recently completed a sustainability plan with the Flagstaff Sustainability Program.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

The display was made possible through the following partners’ contributions: AP Sawmill & Lumber Products, Architectural Design Studio, Coconino Community College, Ezra Builders, Flagstaff Skylights, Habitat for Humanity of Northern Arizona ReStore, Hope Construction, PWMA, Solar Design and Construction, and SolarTerra Design. Coconino Community College Interns were responsible for engineering the displays.
