NewSchool to Host Division of the State Architect (DSA) “7x7x7: Design, Energy, Water” Event in 2016

NewSchool one of four hosts, including California Polytechnic State University, UC Berkeley and USC Los Angeles

NewSchool is one of four schools in California that will host the Division of the State Architect’s (DSA) “7x7x7: Case Studies in School Energy and Water Reduction,” event series, dubbed “7x7x7: Design, Energy, Water” in January 2016.

Sponsored by DSA, a part of the California Department of General Services, in partnership with the California Energy Commission and AIA California Council (AIACC), the initiative engages seven architecture firms to develop a total of seven conceptual case studies for seven representative school campuses. The case studies, each of which will examine the retrofit of a hypothetical classroom building, a multipurpose building, or both, are intended to serve as training programs and to foster conversation among school administrators and facilities members to “reimagine together how schools can be renovated to reduce energy and water usage and create great opportunities for education.”
