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.
