ISS is a research center focused on integrating architecture and emerging technologies. It offers research and development for the building sector and combines the areas of material science, engineering, and architecture to solve immediate problems as well as provide revolutionary concepts for new applications. Over the last decade, the Institute has overseen the construction of three net-zero prototype buildings for use as research and education tools.
“Working with partners and community members illustrates that we are better together than we are individually. Diverse project teams that include a mechanism for community outreach and dialogue are better able to tackle the pressing concerns of our time.”
