Leveraging the Living Building Challenge to Achieve Healthy, High Performing Spaces
TRACK: REGENERATIVE DESIGN

Projects that pursue the Living Building Challenge are not just some of the greenest buildings in the world, these projects are truly better buildings with significant health and productivity benefits for owners and occupants. By merging environmental issues with key human needs such as access to fresh air, daylight, and a connection to nature Living Buildings can improve cognition, creativity and wellness. Join this panel discussion to explore three case studies that demonstrate how Living Building Challenge projects not only meet the highest standard for environmental performance, but also ensure achieving healthy, high performance spaces.
