The first three Living Building Challenge projects have been certified. This is great news, it's a very ambitious program that lays down some strong markers for what a truly healthy / sustainable building might look like.

Jesse,
Any idea if there is more detail published on any of these projects? I am interested in seeing exactly how these buildings earned some of their "petals".

Here's info on another of the projects. I find this more inspiring than the one above, including this quote: "If it's not affordable it's not sustainable."

Thanks Thomas. There is a link in the PDF brochure that leads to another website:
http://www.islandnet.com/~anngord/
which has a link to another PDF:
http://www.islandnet.com/~anngord/downloads/eco-sense-info-sheet.pdf
which contains some interesting information.
Thanks again.
