In general, buildings are not good for the environment. Some do less harm than others, but now, Georgia Tech wants to build a $25 million structure that actually does good. It’s called a “Living Building.”
On the campus of Georgia Tech, there’s this huge oak.
“It’s a signature tree on our campus,” says Georgia Tech’s Director of Capital Planning Howard Wertheimer, “and we want to preserve it. So how they site the building will be respectful of this tree.”
This is the space that will house Tech’s 42,000 square-foot Living Building.
