Bringing the Living Building Challenge into Practice

How can we tap into the ethos of the world’s greenest standard to create regenerative buildings and communities that are sustainable, healthy, and equitable for all? Join Miller Hull and ILFI for an exclusive roundtable discussion about the key technical, strategic, biophilic, and creative details using Miller Hull’s five certified and three registered Living Building Challenge building projects as case studies. Join architects Brian Court, Margaret Sprug, and Chris Hellstern to hear what they have learned through the Living Building Challenge lens, the benefits of the “Regenerative Gap Analysis”, and discuss approaches to incorporating regenerative design more deeply into our community’s work.

Learn more about Miller Hull’s regenerative design practices in the new book Challenge & Change: Miller Hull’s Living Building Practice, by Mary Adam Thomas (available for purchase in the Ecotone bookstore). Part of the Living Building Challenge Book Series, the publication explores the evolving regenerative practice of one of the world’s most prolific design firms creating Living Buildings today.
