The R. W. Kern Center, Hampshire College's newest building in decades, will be a multifunctional learning, teaching, and exhibition space. The building will be the point of entry for prospective students and their families into the community, and intends to pursue Living Building Certification (LBC), which requires the creation of a net-zero energy, waste, and water building. There are currently fewer than ten LBC-certified buildings in the country, and Hampshire will provide national leadership at the confluence of architectural design and energy and water conservation. The R. W. Kern Center will be a proud symbol for Hampshire College, as it will serve all of the campus in a variety of ways and stand in the forefront of sustainable building practices.
