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
