What does sustainability look like on the ground?  Just how sustainable can a city, or a neighborhood be?   This quarter Walker Wells and Ted Bardacke are working with a group of
Urban Planning students (in UP 269 Green Urban Studio - Designing Living Neighborhoods) in an attempt to answer these fundamental  questions. The objective of the course is to develop a proposal for the redesign of a Los Angeles neighborhood that achieves a high level of sustainability. 

They will apply the Living Building Challenge, which requires that every project meet each of 20 strict requirements to achieve certification,  to an entire neighborhood in Playa del Rey.  

For more detail on the studio and project see the recent blogs in Planetizen and Atlantic Cities Place Matters
