 Recap: Biophilia Workshop & Living Building Challenge Introduction

In February Marcus Sheffer and John Boecker from 7group led a 4 hour biophilia workshop designed to change the way we look at sustainability. This case study looked at a real Living Building Challenge design and invited participants to take on the mindset of the building user and give feedback on design, flow, and use.
