Event Details

LET'S ROLL!  Join the AIANY Women in Architecture committee as we partner with NYC °CoolRoofs, an initiative of NYC Service and Department of Buildings, to paint a white, reflective surface onto a black rooftop.  

A reflective roof releases heat quickly, which combats the urban heat island effect and reduces a building’s interior temperature up to 30%.  With a cooler internal temperature, air conditioning usage is lower and energy consumption, carbon emissions, and electricity bills are reduced.  Additionally, a reflective surface prolongs the lifespan of both the roof and the cooling equipment by decreasing the thermal shock stress caused by extreme temperature changes.
