Petals to Pedagogy: Integrating Living Building and Community Concepts into Architectural Education
Track: Truth + Transparency

The University of Arizona School of Architecture is the first accredited program in the nation to implement a sustainability protocol across an entire five-year studio curriculum – and makes use of the imperatives set out by the Living Building Challenge to craft the content of this initiative.  The Living Community Challenge has been used within studio courses at Judson University to tackle complex problems of master planning.  Our interactive panel of university educators will investigate the status of sustainability within academia and where the vision for a future of regenerative designers situates within current architectural education, practice, and our​ communities.
