Please take some time to explore the  Design DataMap and encourage you to provide your feedback through a  3-5 MINUTE SURVEYYour feedback is critical for us to continue to improve the DataMap and make it as useful as possible for you. The  survey should take 3-5 minutes to complete. No identifying information will be been captured. If you have any additional comments or concerns, please email

How to Use Design DataMap
Square boxes on the geographical map represent all AIA COTE Top Ten award winning projects thus far. The size of the square represents the relative size of the project and the color represents the project type (refer to legend to the right of the map). A series of filters are also provided on the right of the map including;
  1. Country
  2. Climate Zone
  3. Site Context
  4. Project Type
  5. Gross Floor Area
  6. Net predicted Energy Use Index (pEUI)

When you click on any of the projects' square box, the link will take you to the project sheet with detailed information about the project. The intent of the Datamap and filters is to allow the users to find projects with specific characteristics and use the information as a knowledge tool. Let's assume that an architect is working on a K-12 project in climate zone 3, they can filter through this Datamap, find relevant projects and study successful sustainable design strategies for these projects.
