New solar-powered Massachusetts college center is as green as a building can be

by Lacy Cook - Hampshire College's new R.W. Kern Center is about as sustainable as a building can be. The 17,000-square-foot center, designed by Bruner/Cott & Associates, is designed "to be entirely self-sustaining and meet the Living Status of the Living Building Challenge." To reach for those goals, the center runs on solar power, is outfitted with composting toilets, and includes a rainwater harvesting system.
