Summary Tells the story of the conception, design, and eventual construction of the Living Science Wing, an addition to Seattle's private Bertschi School. The building project is one of only four in the world (as of 2014) to meet the requirements of the Living Building Challenge. The Challenge goes beyond LEED certification in that it requires actual implementation of design that is not only energy efficient, but also helps to restore the environment
