Carbon Storing Building Challenge


Scaling bio-based building materials beyond specialty projects or custom homes is possible and promises healthier outcomes for people, ecosystems, and the climate. In order to test feasibility and potential benefits, a team of architects, builders, and engineers designed a prototype of a building that could realistically exist in Alameda County. 


See the Carbon Storing Challenge page for more information.
