The Living Building at Georgia Tech construction launch has been rescheduled to take place Nov. 2, Georgia Tech officials announced today.
You may recall that the launch celebration, originally set for Sept. 12, was postponed as the remnants of Hurricane Irma threatened to sweep through metro Atlanta. But the event’s organizers expect a similar lineup of activities at the new time and date: 11 a.m., Thursday, Nov. 2. You don’t need to RSVP, but please do so here so that organizers can get a good count of those coming.
The launch event is substituting for a traditional “groundbreaking” — consistent with the regenerative theme of the Living Building Challenge. Indeed, the Living Building at Georgia Tech and much of its surrounding landscape will be located on what is now an asphalt parking lot. For details about the project, check out this gallery on the project’s design and features at its Design Development phase.
The Living Building at Georgia Tech is being funded through a major commitment by the Kendeda Fund, which also publishes the Living Building Chronicle as part of an outreach effort intended to spread the word about regenerative design and construction.
