Living Building Challenge & Eco-Commons

site design | atlanta, ga

Georgia Tech is advancing sustainable design by transforming the heart of its campus through a fully regenerative design that gives back to the environment more than it takes. By promoting the stringent, net-positive standards of the Living Building Challenge, the University hopes that the project will become a catalyst for innovative sustainable design throughout the region. Georgia Tech aims to create a living laboratory where both the university and urban community can learn, through first-hand experience, how innovative water, energy, and food management solutions within the built environment can contribute to health and well-being. Andropogon is working with two teams at Georgia Tech, one led by Lord Aeck Sargent and the The Miller Hull Partnership for the Living Building Challenge project, and another by HGOR for the Eco Commons. These two projects seamlessly integrate the landscape with the architecture for optimal performance and design.
