LBC Tour – Harvard Extension School

November 11, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

The Living Building Challenge is a building certification program, advocacy tool and philosophy that defines the most advanced measure of sustainability in the built environment possible today. It is comprised of seven performance categories called Petals (Place, Water, Energy, Health & Happiness, Materials, Equity and Beauty) which are subdivided into twenty Imperatives.

In April 2016, the Old Oak Dojo became one of the first 11 buildings in the world to be LBC-certified. (Read the case study.) On this tour for Harvard Extension School students, we’ll show off our salvaged materials, rainwater harvesting, indoor compost toilet, urban permaculture gardens and more.
