Living Building Challenge - Recognition

 

"Living Building Challenge takes out Buckminster Fuller Challenge" by Fergal White

It was announced yesterday that the "Living Building Challenge" has been declared winner of the prestigious "Buckminster Fuller Challenge". The Buckminster Fuller Challenge is an international environmental design competition which has been called "Socially-Responsible Design's Highest Award". The criteria for entry is not a single design alone but an "integrated strategy that addresses social, environmental, economic and cultural issues.".
