The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design
by The Miller Hull Partnership

Jonathan Hillyer

The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design at Georgia Tech was created to foster environmental education, research, and a public forum for community outreach.

Designed by the collaboration of The Miller Hull Partnership, LLP and Lord Aeck Sargent, a Katerra Company (LAS), The Kendeda Building achieved full Living Building Certification in 2021 after proving its net positive energy and water performance during its year-long occupancy period. As the first of its kind in the Southeast United States, the design and construction sets a new standard for sustainability and demonstrates that living buildings are possible in even the most challenging climates.

This project has been longlisted in the sustainable building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
