Living Building Challenge 4.0 Standard

What if every single act of design and construction made the world a better place?

The Living Building Challenge is the world’s most rigorous proven performance standard for buildings. People from around the world use our regenerative design framework to create spaces that, like a flower, give more than they take.

Living Buildings are:

  • Regenerative buildings that connect occupants to light, air, food, nature, and community.

  • Self-sufficient and remain within the resource limits of their site.

  • Create a positive impact on the human and natural systems that interact with them.
