Introduction to the Living Building Challenge 4.0

February 20, 2020 at 2:00 pm ET

The Living Building Challenge (LBC) is a philosophy, advocacy tool, and certification program that addresses development at all scales. LBC 4.0 is a holistic approach to high-performance building that aims to address health, community, equity, energy, water, and beyond.

Learn how to identify the key components of the Living Building Challenge and the rationale for restorative design principles. Address design strategies for meeting ambitious place, water, energy, and materials performance requirements and health, happiness, beauty, and equity design considerations. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will have a better understanding of how to compare the certification pathways available to LBC project teams, the key reasons for the latest changes to the LBC and reference examples of how the Living Building Challenge is driving innovation.
