Congrats to RMI
Rocky Mountain Institute was recognized Oct. 22 at the Smithsonian Institution’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum’s fourth annual national design awards gala in Manhattan as one of two finalists in the category of environmental design. Seven distinguished jurors selected by the museum gave tribute to RMI for “innovative green design processes that promote the efficient and restorative use of resources and new business models.” The museum also noted that RMI’s “research in sustainable design for the building trade is extensive and is one of the primary resources for design professionals, community leaders and real estate developers today.”
RMI’s Green Development Services has participated in hundreds of green building projects since the consulting practice was formed in 1991 including greening the White House and the Pentagon.
As a finalist, RMI’s work will be a part of ongoing educational work at the Smithsonian Institution’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. The museum’s education department incorporates the finalists’ work into their program throughout the coming year, including lectures, roundtables and workshops designed to bring the finalists’ work to the public.
Hurry, hurry, hurry …
