R.W. Kern Center Featured in New Publication: Creating Biophilic Buildings
What if we could experience the same physical, psychological, and emotional benefits moving through an urban landscape that we experience walking through a forest? What if we could right our relationship with nature by transforming the built environment in a way that ensures buildings function in harmony with the natural world?
Creating Biophilic Buildings by Amanda Sturgeon calls for an intentional biophilic design renaissance providing a fresh, insightful place to begin exploring how to create places where people and nature can thrive together.
Sturgeon shines contextual light on brilliant historical examples of biophilic design and goes on to present a carefully chosen selection of fourteen international buildings that illuminate both the process and the results.
The clear examples, imagery, methodologies, and lessons from these case studies combined with Sturgeon’s practical Tools and Resources, are the reader’s compelling starting point on the pathway to creating truly biophilic buildings.

One of the featured case studies in Creating Biophilic Buildings is the R.W. Kern Center at Hampshire College, designed to be entirely self-sustaining and meet the rigorous requirements of the Living Building Challenge. We at Bruner/Cott are thrilled to be included among thirteen other exemplary buildings that are turning the built environment upside down and paving the way towards a sustainable future.
