Riassunto: Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens has long been recognized as an environmental leader for its deeply green campus and its mission to advance sustainability, and promote the well being of both people and the planet. For the final phase of a three-part expansion, Phipps took a revolutionary step. In 2007, it accepted the Living Building Challenge to guide the design and construction of its new research, education and administration facility. When the Center for Sustainable Landscapes opened to the public in December, 2012, Phipps demonstrated that commitment and collaboration can turn an ambitious idea into a high-performance building that operates as efficiently, cleanly and beautifully as nature s architecture. Combining project-specific details with reflections from the design team, Building in Bloom tells the story of how this remarkable structure came to life from concept to ribbon cutting. This book, enhanced by its superb full-color imagery, is the first in a series of publications about leading-edge Living Building projects connected to the International Living Future Institute s Living Building Challenge.
