HMC Architects is excited to announce its participation in METROPOLIS magazine’s 2024 Climate Toolkit Workshops, scheduled for March 27 and 28 in Los Angeles. These workshops aim to bring together design leaders and manufacturers to discuss sustainable design practices and further develop the Climate Toolkit for Interior Design.

Launched in 2021 by METROPOLIS in collaboration with A&D firms, construction and real estate companies, industry associations, manufacturers, and end-users, the Climate Toolkit is a dynamic resource that assists the A&D industry in creating low-carbon spaces that prioritize the safety and well-being of future generations.

The first regional workshop of 2024 will be hosted in LA over two days, with HMC playing a pivotal role on the second day, March 28. Attendees will convene at HMC’s office for an afternoon session from 2 to 4:30 p.m., following the morning session hosted at RIOS on March 27. The morning program will feature a brainstorming session led by Avi Rajagopal, METROPOLIS’ Editor-in-Chief.

During the afternoon session at HMC, participants from both morning and afternoon sessions will come together to discuss their findings and insights on sustainability. This collaborative discussion aims to enrich the Climate Toolkit with innovative strategies and solutions.

HMC will host a celebratory cocktail reception to cap off the event, allowing attendees to network and unwind after a day of productive discussions.

“We are honored to participate in METROPOLIS’ Climate Toolkit Workshops,” said HMC’s Communications Director Bruce Boul. “Sustainability lies at the core of our design philosophy, and we are committed to advancing sustainable practices within the A&D industry. We look forward to collaborating with industry leaders to develop the Climate Toolkit further and drive positive change.”

Four HMC designers will participate in these in-depth workshops to contribute their expertise and insights. The Climate Toolkit for Interior Design contains over 20 strategies to reduce embodied carbon emissions in interior environments, addressing the significant environmental impact of interior renovations.

Stay tuned for updates and insights from the workshops as HMC and METROPOLIS join forces to shape the future of sustainable design.
