Chapter Members!  Join us for a member exclusive event, tour of the Loyola University Chicago’s new Institute for Environmental Sustainability (IES). 

This event is limited to 20 AIA Chicago members and 20 USGBC Illinois members.

Designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB), the IES Building is the next step in the evolution of living/learning communities, integrating a rigorous academic and research program along with a new 357-bed residence hall. Traditional classrooms and student housing are linked with an innovative passive greenhouse learning space that engages students to live sustainably in an urban environment, showcasing urban farming and harvesting building thermal energy from Chicago’s largest integrated hybrid geothermal building system. Sustainable building strategies include natural ventilation, geothermal heating and cooling, rain water collection, grey water systems, green roofs, and living walls- resulting in a Net Zero ready community.
