Tyson Living Learning Center earns full certification as a Living Building!

On October 12, 2010, two pioneering projects, Washington University’s Tyson Living Learning Center (Eureka, MO) and the Omega Center for Sustainable Living (Rhinebeck, NY), became certified Living Buildings. After an extensive third-party audit – and four years of incredible effort, perseverance and performance – both projects demonstrated that they had fulfilled every Imperative of Living Building Challenge 1.3.

Please join us in congratulating these teams on their momentous achievement. Because of their accomplishment, the Living Building Challenge is no longer simply a theory of change: it is now a proven strategy for transforming the built environment.  This marks a pivotal turning point in the green building movement, proving that buildings can be designed and built to benefit the ecosystems they inhabit.

Summary information about each project is available on the CERTIFIED PROJECTS webpage of the International Living Building Institute website.
