The Center for Sustainable Landscapes (CSL) opened in December 2012. It remains the only building to achieve seven of the highest green building certifications: the Living Building Challenge, WELL Platinum (first), SITES Platinum (first), LEED Platinum, BREAAM Outstanding In-Use (first in the United States), Fitwel 3 Star, and Zero Energy certifications. After 10 years of occupying, operating, and refining this unique facility, Phipps and the design team have developed a wealth of knowledge to share with designers, builders, and owners. This presentation will explore what was learned about design process, biophilic design, performance, occupant engagement, and ongoing evaluation.
