The IDID (Integrated Design/Integrated Development) conferences illustrate multidisciplinary design processes that produce efficient, cost-effective, and delightful buildings, grounds, communities, and landscapes. A central concept is to make use of and protect ecological services, such as sunlight for daylighting and heat, shading for cooling, vegetated buffers for lakes, ponds, streams, and retention and reuse of stormwater.
IDID Conferences bring together the many professionals shaping the built environment who are working to strengthen the connection among site, building, neighborhood, and community through environmentally responsible, economically compelling design and development — architects, landscape architects, engineers, planners, developers, contractors, and others open to communications between the disciplines. In addition to the design and construction trades, the conference includes real estate agents and bankers, who are learning about the advantages of Integrated Design and Development for their clients, and their investment.
Through educational sessions, walking and virtual tours, the conferences illustrate the value of, and techniques for, multidisciplinary design processes that produce efficient, cost-effective, and beautiful buildings, grounds, communities, and landscapes.
The IDID Conferences are planned and hosted by the Environmental Guild of AIANH, which has held six events from 2003-2010. The seventh conference is in the planning stages.
Previous Conferences and themes:
• 2003 (1st, New England Center, UNH)
• 2004 (2nd, Holloway Commons, UNH)
• 2005 (3rd, AMC Highland House, Crawford Notch): Human Face of Green Design
• 2006 (4th, Crotched Mountain): Dollars and Sense of IDID
• 2008 (5th, Plymouth State University): Stepping Up to the 2030 Challenge
• 2010 (6th, Dartmouth College): Sustainable Design: From LEED to Living Buildings
The most recent IDID Conference was in 2010, a symposium held in conjunction with The Dartmouth College Sustainability Initiative at Dartmouth College. The focus was to advance and promote the use of sustainable design practices in the renovation and construction of buildings and grounds on college campuses and in our communities.
