Programming and Project Goals Meet program needs (research, education, collections, public outreach, staff, use patterns). Meet project budget. Maximize Fexibility for future program needs. Low maintenance/life-cycle costs. Use recycled or renewable materials whenever feasible. Structure that embodies educational and research opportunities. Reduce annual recurring energy budget to = net zero carbon emissions. Design that minimizes material use. Minimize visual impact on the site and surrounding neighbors.
