The Design Robotics Group has been prominently featured in the reports from Smartgeometry 2012 at RPI in Troy, New York. The group was selected to lead a cluster on Ceramics 2.0, an outgrowth of research in the course Material Processes and Systems: CeramicsLAB.

The Zofnass Program for Sustainable Infrastructure and the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) have launched Envision, a framework for evaluating infrastructure projects.

Project owners and design teams can use a self-assessment tool or can submit the project for third-party verification, which includes evaluation of the project during three phases: pre-construction, construction, and operations and maintenance.

Future versions of the rating system will also incorporate additional tools for complex or multi-stage projects.
