Partner Brian Court will be discussing, “The Ripples of Living Buildings: A Decade of Lessons Learned,” at the 2024 International Living Future Institute (ILFI) Conference.

The arc of Living Buildings bends toward regeneration. A decade of designing these highly sustainable projects has taught us how each version sends out ripples of impact, influencing our industry, our society, and our global community. We share lessons from four projects, in three different climates, spanning ten years. From foundations to think tanks, universities to the private sector, each of these projects was the first of its kind in certain ways. We will share an unflinching view of the successes and failures of each of these projects. As we look to a regenerative future, we strive to have our design lessons ripple forward.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the impact of each of the four Living Buildings on the industry.
  • Understand the successes and failures that pushed the designs.
  • Observe how each project influenced the next iteration of Living Building Challenge itself.
  • Outline the steps to design a replicable building in any climate.

Brian will be speaking with Paul Schwer, President Emeritus with PAE and Kathy Berg, Principal with ZGF Architects.
