The American Institute of Architects' Committee on Architecture for Education today announced that the Kohler Environmental Center is the winner of a 2017 Education Facility Design Award. For more information, please click here.

The Kohler Environmental Center is a LEED-Platinum academic and residential facility that accommodates cohorts of up to 20 students for a total-immersion environmental living experience and curriculum. The building itself serves as a teaching tool: feedback from its monitoring systems enables students to teach themselves important lessons about how to live responsibly. Set in the midst of meadows, agricultural fields, second-growth forest, and wetlands, the Kohler Center allows students to learn from the site's exceptional biodiversity and range of habitats.

RAMSA Partners Robert A.M. Stern, Graham S. Wyatt, and Kevin M. Smith led the design effort. For more information about the project, please click here.
