Oberlin College awarded Mosser Construction the most advanced examples of ecological architecture in America. The Adam Joseph Lewis Center for Environmental Studies is the most revolutionary structure of this century, or the next.
Built as an environmental solution for problems of the 21st century, this building is a tool that encourages mindfulness of material selection, energy efficiency, water use, and wastewater recycling.
This two-story complex includes an interior atrium, resource center, faculty offices, administrative offices, conference room, kitchen, and Living Machine. The building teaches a respect for the preservation of natural resources and sensitivity to the effects of using human-friendly materials, supplies and systems.
This project is a net zero green building, which is a highly-efficient structure that produces as much energy as it uses.
