Visit the R.W. Kern Center
Friday: 3-6 p.m.
Saturday Noon–5 p.m.
The R.W. Kern Center is a living symbol of Hampshire’s values in practice and ideas in action. Our first major new building in three decades, it was constructed with the goal of certification under the world’s most advanced green-building standard, the Living Building Challenge. Thanks to funding from generous donors, led by Bill Kern 75F and his mother Leona Kern, the center was constructed by Jonathan Wright 70F and Wright Builders without toxic “red-list” chemicals, using materials mainly from local and regional sources. The multifunctional center, which will generate its own electricity and collect its own water, will also serve the campus as a living laboratory in which students and the public can study its systems and performance according to measures for sustainability.
