Oberlin College's Adam Joseph Lewis Center: Oberlin, OH

Early Adopter

Thousands of building professionals, educators and students have toured the facility during its 10 years of operation, gaining a new perspective on the possibilities of sustainable design. Solar panels produce approximately as much electricity as the building consumes and an internal wastewater treatment system recycles 90% of water used in the building. Landscaping restores forested areas and a wetland ecosystem to the site, while a fruit orchard and kitchen garden provide organic produce.
