2/12/2014: Charrette 1 Success!

Thank you to all who contributed to the success of the 2015 DC Affordable Living Design Competition Charrette 1!

The DC Living Building Challenge Collaborative’s take-away from this event is that in this unique forum, we all experienced a new and refreshing kind of collaboration.  These photos show how many different ways the government agencies, speakers, ambassadors, entrants and volunteers interacted and the excitement that was brought to this new process.  Ultimately, this event helped raise the bar for sustainability in Washington DC.  A special thank you to the director of the District Department of the Environment Tommy Wells for leading us into the Charrette and for his help carrying the baton for DC’s sustainable future.  We look forward to Charrettes 2 & 3!

Thank you to our photographer Dominique Cahn for your insightful documentation.
