Living Building Challenge (LBC) schools and classrooms open up new and exciting paths for their students and communities to explore, understand and impact environmental issues. This interactive panel discussion between architects and owners of occupied Living Building Challenge (LBC) school buildings (Willow School, NJ; Monarch School, TX; SEED project, WA+) will demonstrate how groundbreaking regenerative design can inform and enhance a community. Panelists will discuss critical issues and turning points in their design process and the resulting synergies between their buildings and educational programs, focusing on strategies for integrating building design and educational curriculum development into programming and operations.
