Upcoming Philosopher's Walk to Highlight the Kendeda Building

Kendeda Building

Live virtual walk: Kendeda Building

Before November 11: The tour guides recommend watching this introductory video before the tour so that people can have a more focused discussion come our tour time.

Nov. 11th Theme:  Alfie Vick, UGA CED Professor, will lead the Kendeda Building virtual walk.
It is open to the public and there will be light refreshments.


The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design is the first building in Georgia, the first building of its size and scale in the Southeast, and 28th in the world to earn Living Building Challenge certification, the world’s most ambitious and holistic green building achievement. The certification from the International Living Future Institute independently verifies that The Kendeda Building is among the greenest in the world. The Kendeda Building is regenerative. Over the course of a year, it collects and infiltrates into the ground 15 times the amount of water needed for operations. Its photovoltaic system supplies over 200% of the building's energy needs. It gives back more than it takes from the environment and focuses on the health and happiness of occupants.
