Dear friends and colleagues,
Living Building Challenge: We’re fortunate to have Scott Stolarczyk, AIA, CDT, LEED AP BD+C, from Robertson Sherwood Architects to present to this month’s ASLA luncheon. Scott has been actively involved in sustainability efforts on design projects and within our community.
Living Building Challenge is a philosophy, advocacy tool and certification program that addresses development at all scales. It is comprised of seven performance areas: Site, Water, Energy, Health, Materials, Equity and Beauty. These are subdivided into a total of twenty Imperatives, each of which focuses on a specific sphere of influence.
The purpose of the Living Building Challenge is straightforward – it defines the most advanced measure of sustainability in the built environment possible today and acts to diminish the gap between current limits and ideal solutions. Whether your project is a single building, a park, a college campus or even a complete neighborhood community, Living Building Challenge provides a framework for design, construction and the symbiotic relationship between people and all aspects of the built environment.
This month’s luncheon will be held at McMenamin’s North Bank, Thursday March 15th from 12:00 to 1:30 pm.
Presentation will begin at 12:15.
Please reply with your attendance as we will need to provide accurate numbers to the venue for our reservation,
Arica Duhrkoop-Galas, ASLA Oregon, WVS Co-Chair
