East Coast/West Coast, Small/Large - Two Schools Meeting LBC's Red List
Track: Creating Healthy Buildings
Like many schools across the nation, Sonoma Academy, a west coast, rural high school, and the Waldorf School of Pittsburgh, an east coast, urban, K-8 school are rethinking educational design. By pushing for material transparency, these two projects are turning their learning facilities into healthy havens and proving that the LBC Material’s Red List is achievable across a variety of building types and scales.

This session will examine Sonoma Academy’s new Janet Durgin Guild & Commons building - a 2-story, 19,500-sf hybrid maker space, cooking lab, and learning center, located in Santa Rosa, and explore the Waldorf School of Pittsburgh 8th Grade Classroom building, a 1,000-sf modular learning space located near downtown Pittsburgh. Design teams from both projects will discuss how they overcame hurdles to meet LBC Red List, and illustrate how their projects pushed for transparency, energy-efficient products and systems, and avoided harmful chemicals. They’ll lead a dynamic discussion about the future of building materials, focusing on where the A+D industry should head in terms of local and sustainable products.
