What's the Living Building Challenge about?

What if every single act of design and construction made the world a better place

The Living Building Challenge is the world’s most rigorous proven performance standard for buildings. People from around the world use our regenerative design framework to create spaces that, like a flower, give more than they take.

Imagine a building that is as efficient as a flower; a simple symbol for the ideal built environment. The Living Building Challenge is organized into seven performance areas.

PLACE Restoring a healthy interrelationship with nature.

WATER Creating developments that operate within the water balance of a given place and climate.

ENERGY Relying only on current solar income.

HEALTH & HAPPINESS Creating environments that optimize physical and psychological health and well being.

MATERIALS Endorsing products that are safe for all species through time.

EQUITY Supporting a just and equitable world.

BEAUTY Celebrating design the uplifts the human spirit.
