The Conserving Modern Architecture Initiative (CMAI) is pleased to announce Energy and Climate Management in Modern Buildings, the second volume in its publication series Case Studies from the Field. Aimed at architects, engineers, conservators, students, asset managers, owners, and contractors working in the area of conservation, this series focuses on a specific conservation challenge with each volume.

The CMAI is looking for inspiring case studies from around the world that balance climate management concerns with best practices in the preservation and conservation of modern architecture. Good case studies would illustrate how issues such as energy consumption and thermal comfort, renewal of original systems, complying with current green buildings standards, etc., have been sensitively resolved for modern-era buildings.
