PRICING: $65 per person
LOCATION: Westin Seattle (1900 5th Avenue, Seattle, Washington, 98101), Puget Sound room
The International Living Future Institute has seen a demonstrated need among the Living Building Challenge community for Biophilic Design resources that can take the practice from theory to reality. While progress has been made to communicate what Biophilic Design is and to demonstrate why it is crucial to a Living Future, very little has been made around the process of how to achieve it. The International Living Future Institute has brought together leading experts in the field to form an Advisory Task Force that will lead the initiative through collaboration and inclusion of existing resources. This initiative aims to achieve the goal of broad adoption of Biophilic Design among the design community, building owners and cities.
Lunch will be included. This summit is pre-approved for AIA, GBCI and LFA.
