Watch our SEED Being Built

by Melissa Harding


The SEEDClassroom is becoming a reality at Phipps! The SEEDclassroom, a portable, sustainable learning space built to Living Building standards, is a great example of tailoring the learning environment to the needs to the students who will learn there. This modular classroom is a way to provide a healthy, happy environment for learning. It also provides opportunities for hands-on experiential opportunities for students of all ages.

In addition, the classroom is net-zero energy, net-zero water, is made of non-toxic materials, includes daylighting, urban agriculture and equity components and creates a space that fosters inspiration, education and beauty. The SEEDclassroom is built to last 100 years!

We are getting more excited as progress is being made on the site and on the modular building itself. We wanted to share these awesome photos of our classroom in production. We can’t wait for it to land next to our lagoon!


To learn more about the SEEDclassroom and get a sense of what it will look inside and out, check out the website.
