Summary Sentence: Beyond the Box; Beyond LEED

Full Summary: Registration deadline May 15

How can we improve the impact big boxes have on their communities?

The inherent simplicity of design makes these large retail developments both cheap and quick to construct. However, there is a dark side. The Atlanta Chapter of the Emerging Green Builders (EGB) invites everyone to rethink and redefine the big box - past, present, and future into an expression of SUSTAINABLE design.

Go Beyond LEED -- use your design to highlight areas where you believe LEED is lacking or deficient.

Open to all, including professionals.

Registration deadline: May 15
Submission deadline: June 15

USGBC's Natural Talent Design Competition provides applied learning experience in the principles of integrated design, sustainability, and innovation, all of which are components of the LEED® Green Building Rating System™. Participants compete in local competitions, and the top winner of each moves on to compete for a national award at USGBC’s annual Greenbuild International Conference & Expo. Awards include green building scholarships, as well as travel and registration to Greenbuild, where finalists’ entries are displayed and final judging occurs. Now in its sixth year, the next Design Competition will take place November 11-13, 2009, at Greenbuild in Phoenix.
