FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Amherst, Mass.) - Hampshire College will open its new 17,000-sq-ft campus center, the R.W. Kern Center, this month as one of the greenest buildings in the world. The college worked with architects from Bruner/Cott & Associates of Cambridge, Mass., to design a building that supplies its own water and energy on-site, processes its own waste, was built non-toxic to avoid “red list” chemical products, and with materials mainly from local and regional sources to limit the project’s carbon footprint.
