Living Building Challenge
Welcome to the Living Building ChallengeTM:
true sustainability in the built environment.
Now is the right time for Living Buildings.
Imagine a building designed and constructed to function as elegantly and efficiently as a flower.
Imagine a building informed by its eco-region’s characteristics and that:
- generates all of its own energy with renewable resources
- captures and treats all of its water
- operates efficiently and for maximum beauty
The Living Building Challenge is comprised of six performance areas, or Petals:
Beauty + InspirationProjects may apply for individual Petal designation by satisfying the requirements within that petal, or for Living Building Status by attaining all requirements within the system.
