The parking lot at the corner of Ferst Drive and State Street

Whether your art talent is more aligned with Michelangelo or your toddler cousin, we invite you to join us to paint a giant mural on the site of the future Living Building! All materials are provided and we need you to make this a success. Grab your friends, and come spend the day making your mark! We will be painting between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. – come join when you can for as long as you can. The site of the Living Building is the parking lot at the corner of Ferst Drive and State Street, across from the Marcus Nanotechnology Building.

Let us know you will attend this Planting the Seeds event highlighting the Beauty Petal by RSVPing on our Facebook event page.

The Living Building Challenge is a green building certification program and sustainable design framework that visualizes the ideal for the built environment. The standard uses the metaphor of a flower, with seven performance areas called petals. To celebrate the launch of the Living Building at Georgia Tech, the Office of Campus Sustainability will host a series of seven events to explore each of the petals - place, water, energy, health + happiness, materials, equity, and beauty.
