This is a new spin that gets some press: "Living Buildings"

http://www.architectmagazine.com/architecture/smith-college-s-bechtel-environmental-classroom-certified-as-world-s-fifth-living-building_o.aspx?dfpzone=home&utm_source=newsletter&utm_content=jump&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=ANW_020514&day=2014-02-05

For those of us who have been on the 'bleeding edge' of sustainable building design, here is yet another metric to consider when designing.

Interesting that all five have been educational in nature.

I wonder if Paul's lab and wofati might fit this category?
