Did you know the Hitchcock Center is a Certified Living Building? In fact, it’s the 23rd building in the world, and the 4th in Massachusetts, to achieve this rigorous level of sustainability.

It is designed to model systems in nature, it’s net zero energy and water, has composting toilets, and has been made with responsibly sourced non-toxic materials. Bring your questions and come find out what good can look like in the built environment at one of our bi-monthly tours.

“Hitchcock Center for the Environment is a strong example of architecture’s power to educate. This center doesn’t merely talk the talk by housing an environmental educational program; it walks the walk. Living Building Challenge designed, 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.” – 2018 Jury, Honor Award for Sustainable Design from the Boston Society of Architects (BSA)
