The Living Building at Georgia Tech: Making Collaborative Decisions to Meet the Challenge
TRACK: Case Studies

Join us as we share the collective experience of designing a Living Building Challenge certified project in the hot, humid climate of the southeastern United States. We will use the unique site history and context on Georgia Tech’s campus in the heart of Atlanta to inform design decisions and drive us to working, replicable solutions. Presented in an interactive format, the panel will include representatives of the owner, design team and contractor discussing what it means to work in an open, collaborative design environment and allow the audience to make their own data–based decisions about how to proceed.
