Seattle to host fourth annual Living Future “Unconference” – bigger, better and even more revolutionary Print E-mail
Friday, 05 February 2010 08:31
This spring, the fourth annual Living Future will bring the world’s most forward-thinking green building professionals together in Seattle to explore solutions to today’s most daunting environmental and social justice issues.  With this year’s theme of “Build Hope, Re-valuing Community,” the Cascadia Region Green Building Council’s Living Future 2010 is a forum to capture and share the most cutting-edge ideas in green building. The event is May 5-7, 2010 at the Westin Seattle.

This year’s event is particularly noteworthy in light of the fact that the first Living Buildings are expected to be certified this year – which is no small feat as the Challenge is performance-based and a building has to perform as modeled for one full year before receiving certification. Four Living Building Challenge projects have completed construction and entered the verification phase: Tyson Living Learning Center in Eureka, MO; Omega Center for Sustainable Living in Rhinebeck, NY; Eco-Sense, a private residence in Victoria, British Columbia; and Hawaii Preparatory Academy Energy Center in Kamuela, HI.  There are currently over 70 proposed Living Building Challenge projects already in some stage of design or construction throughout North America and beyond.  Version 2.0 of the Living Building Challenge was launched in November 2009.
