Sample text

It was a challenge to the industry, and the industry responded. Fast-forward a few short years and the Living Building Challenge has become a “meme”: a powerful idea with a life of its own beyond what we could have predicted. Dozens of projects have sprung up in countries around the world. Thousands of people share the tool, our research and our case studies, and we now have the world’s first fully certified Living Buildings up and operating—proving that this level of performance is possible already, with today’s technology and know-how.

Plan for the extended use of a building through the separation of utilities, structure, and shell. Designing for flexibility extends the use phase of the building’s life cycle. • Create regionally relevant benchmarks throughout the world through comparisons with similar industrial bases, climates, and material conditions, as well as similar flora and fauna, using patterns supplied by the internationally accepted biome system. • Reduce the size and complexity of the life cycle to enable it to relate more directly to people, involving the user with the resources associated with their everyday activities.

This reflects our lack of knowingly playing a role with life cycle “events,” such as how oxygen is produced or carbon is absorbed by a certain quantity of vegetation and soil systems. The fact is that approximately 5000 sq. ft. (465 sq. m) of temperate forest is needed to support an individual’s oxygen needed for breathing, and 7500 sq. ft. (697 sq. m) is needed for carbon sequestering—these essential life-giving threads have not been part of our “event” vocabulary, but should be. In the model outlined here, buildings are designed to mimic and illuminate the life cycle events around us, causing humans to experience resource flows and cycles, understand resource dependencies, and adapt their behavior accordingly (Fisk 2008).
