Announcing the Winners of the Planet Positive Awards
9-30-2021 | News
Metropolis’s Planet Positive Awards recognizes the most creative projects and products from around the world that benefit people and planet. Judged by four expert juries across project types, regions, and product categories, the winners and honorable mentions below represent the highest achievements today in design that addresses climate change, ecosystem health, human health, and equity.
Miller Hull Partnership & Lord Aeck Sargent Planning and Design, Inc. | The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design | South
The Kendeda Building showcases many firsts in sustainable design. It achieved full Living Building Certification in 2021 after proving its net positive energy and water performance after one year of occupancy.
In addition to a host of integrated and ingeniously designed building systems, 25,000 linear feet of 2-by-4 material was salvaged from Atlanta’s Lifecycle Building Center, which sourced the lumber from discarded film sets. The decking was assembled by apprentices hired through local nonprofit Georgia Works!, providing valuable trade skills. Wood salvaged from storm-felled trees on campus and in southern Georgia was used for countertops and furniture.
