Boston Society of Architects/AIA awards 2018 Sustainable Design Honor Award
Located on the Amherst, MA campus of Hampshire College, the Hitchcock Center for the Environment features an integrated interpretive program that explains universal natural principles and illustrates how those principles are applied within the building.
It also features Alpen windows.
“This center doesn’t merely talk the talk by housing an environmental educational program; it walks the walk. Living Building Challenge certified, the structure is thoughtfully integrated with its site and existing systems. Its formal qualities, its graphics, and its performance achievements combine to tell a complete and compelling story about design.”
Congratulations to the amazing team at designLAB architects on this integrative building and well-deserved award!
