Living Building Challenge
SEEDclassroom is constructed to achieve The Living Building Challenge™, a philosophy, advocacy tool, and certification program that addresses development at all scales. The Challenge is comprised of seven performance areas: Site, Water, Energy, Health, Materials, Equity, and Beauty. The Living Building Challenge is intended to spur holistic, systems-level approaches to design, construction and operations of buildings.
Based on the idea of a flower, a living building must meet all it's needs from the site on which it sits. LBC is the most rigorous building standard to date, and through it's execution offers a deeply practical understanding of true resilience.
