R.W. Kern Center


893 West Street
Amherst, MA 01002

Come explore the R.W. Kern Center, one of just 23 certified Living Buildings in the world.

Come learn what makes the RWKC special and see what it means for a building to function in collaboration with the natural environment. We’ll talk on-site water treatment, resource efficiency, solar energy, local materials, student research…and whatever you’re most interested in. Bonus points if you solve a secret puzzle or two, or pay a visit to the composting toilets! We offer an authentic look at what makes our Living Building tick— the challenges, setbacks, and successes.
