"The Living Building: Tacoma's Next Challenge" is the topic of a dinner meeting panel of Living Building experts held at the Center for Urban Waters on July 20, 2011. The Cascadia Green Building Council, Tacoma/Olympia branch, is holding a joint event with the Southwest Washington Chapter of the American Institute of Architects to explore the possibility of what a Living Building in Tacoma/Pierce County might look like and what is involved. The panel will introduce the recently completed Living Science Building at the Bertschi School in Seattle along with other project examples and discuss what challenges were involved in design, construction and agency approvals. Be prepared to learn how regenerative buildings can be built in our own community. See the attached announcement.
