The National Green Centre presents The Living Building Challenge

Learn more about living systems including green roofs and rain gardens

Staff | September 15, 2010

Join Dan Hellmuth, a St. Louis area architect, as he discusses how the architectural designs of living systems such as green roofs, raingardens, and others are interconnecting the fields of architecture, landscape architecture and nurseries. He’ll present his ideas at the 2011 National Green Centre Jan. 9-10 in St. Louis. 
 
He'll explore this concept first as it relates to the design of a local St. Louis garden center and then as he discusses the living building challenge.
