You don't have to be Matt Damon on Mars to realize that now is the time to science the sh** out of this planet. In order for the almost 8 billion on earth to lead comfortable lives without ruining the Earth forever, we are going to have to start living sustainably. Georgia Tech just opened the Kendeda building, which seeks to satisfy the Living Building Challenge which includes being net energy positive, net water positive, and zero waste. What is the impact of this building on the external environment? What is the quality of the air and water inside the building? The Living Building Science VIP seeks to answer these questions and more, while conducting our experiments in the most sustainable way possible.
