Are there methodologies of building and site design based in nature which can utilize Bahá’í principles for their implementation, and go beyond current methodologies such as LEED? This presentation says “yes”, combining visuals, poetry and interaction to focus on six elements of sustainability: spirit, seed, sky, soil, skin and systems. These elements are broken into major aspects of project design and construction, and follow up use by “sustainers” (owners and users of space). Bahá’í principles such as honesty, justice, and oneness are added to help ensure a project is successful with commitments to overall goals of sustainable living.
