Join us for the opening reception of DURABLE: Sustainable Material Ecologies, Assemblies, and Cultures on Thursday, February 27, 2020 at 6:00 pm. This special event is the first opportunity to explore the exhibition while enjoying complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres.

Durability may be the ultimate measure of sustainability in the built environment. Buildings that endure for generations while constantly adapting to ever-changing human needs sustain both human life, and the planet on which we build.

Durable uses four traditional architectural materials—concrete, steel, masonry, and timber—to illustrate the potential consequences of material choices made in the construction of buildings.

Durable challenges everyone—architecture’s creators and users—to consider the lifespan and the global and local impact of buildings by demonstrating how the design for durability can shape a sustainable future.
