One thought on “Living Building Challenge: capital city workshops and new guidelines

  1. The Living Building Challenge promotes the use of brown field sites and the reuse of existing buildings. It also promotes connection to place and people. I think it could be useful to prepare a companion document – possibly linked to each of the relevant petals – that shows how heritage fits into this approach and how the LBC can be applied to a heritage building.
