The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Building Materials Reuse Association, the American Institute of Architects, and West Coast Green invite professionals and students to participate in the Lifecycle Building Challenge, a competition seeking designs and ideas that reduce waste by facilitating a building's adaptability, deconstruction, and reuse.

Students, architects, reuse experts, engineers, designers, planners, builders, educators, and environmental advocates nationwide are invited to submit designs and ideas that support disassembly and anticipate the future use of building materials in the following categories:

1) entire buildings
2) building components
3) policies, tools and strategies

Outstanding entries in each category will be recognized nationally, and top student designs will be rewarded $2500 donated by our sponsor Green Building Blocks. Free passes to West Coast Green, the largest residential green building conference in the country, will be provided to all winning entrants.

In the United States, buildings consume 60% of total materials flow (excluding food and fuel) and construction and demolition waste accounts for about one third of total waste generated each year. With current building trends, over 27% of existing buildings will be replaced between 2000 and 2030, and over 50% of buildings in 2030 will have been built since 2000. Developing innovative design techniques now will make it easier to disassemble and reuse building materials in the future.

Registration closes on April 15, 2007.
