The Living Building Challenge is a green building certification program and sustainable design framework that visualizes the ideal for the built environment. The standard uses the metaphor of a flower, with seven performance areas called petals. To celebrate the launch of the Living Building at Georgia Tech, the Office of Campus Sustainability will host a series of seven events to explore each of the petals - place, water, energy, health + happiness, materials, equity, and beauty.
