Green building practitioners advocate for integrated systems by adopting net-zero water goals, but how does this closed-loop approach impact the larger context? This session will inspire practitioners to think beyond anthropocentric views of water to a biocentric approach, where site-integrated systems can be regenerative within a more ecological context.

Learning Objectives:

  • Examine the limitations of a net-zero/ building-centric approach towards achieving wet-positive outcomes.
  • Review regional considerations towards achieving a biocentric approach, from east to west coast.
  • Explore the design strategies and implications of sustaining living systems by balancing biological demands.
  • Review the tools and processes for meeting biocentric goals for water management at all scales, including planning approaches, design strategies, management procedures, and post-occupancy evaluations.
