Amanda Long

Lyria Bartlett, Associate Teaching Professor and chair of the Department of Architectural Studies in Mizzou’s College of Arts & Science, will be one of four speakers for the upcoming webinar, 2023 Zero Energy Design Designation: Preparing the Next Generation of Designers, hosted by the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA).

During the session, 11 a.m. Monday, April 10, participants will learn about earning the U.S. Department of Energy’s new Zero Energy Design Designation (ZEDD), including the application timeline and process and how to get answers to questions.

The ZEDD is a three-year designation awarded to schools that demonstrate a commitment to preparing students for a zero-carbon future by offering a building science education curriculum within their programs of study that showcases best practices in zero-energy design and requiring a zero-energy design practicum.

“I am excited to share our experience with this process and to highlight the important role that this curriculum and designation plays in design education. The impact at Mizzou has been and will continue to be instrumental for student success,” said Bartlett.

ACSA is an international association of architecture schools whose membership includes U.S. and Canadian accredited professional degree programs, as well as international schools and 2- and 4-year programs. ACSA provides venues for international peer review and recognition in the form of scholarly journals, conferences, awards, and student design competitions.

Bartlett led the University of Missouri’s effort to achieve a ZEDD, which was awarded in September 2022. She holds two master’s degrees, one in Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis and the other in Art History from the University of Missouri.  She is a licensed or certified professional in the fields of architecture, interior design, sustainability, positive coaching, and structural assessment after disasters.
