AIA COTE Top Ten Award for R.W. Kern Center

Uncategorized / April 19, 2017 by Bruner/Cott

Bruner/Cott and the whole Kern Center project team are honored to announce that the project has received a 2017 COTE Award.

Conferred by the AIA Committee on the Environment, the AIA COTE Top Ten Award is the industry’s best-known accolade for sustainable design excellence, recognizing ten innovative projects each year.

The R.W. Kern Center, the gateway building at Hampshire College, serves as an admissions and welcome center for staff, students, and their families. Designed to be entirely self-sustaining and to meet the rigorous requirements of the Living Building Challenge, the Kern Center aims to make a lasting impression on all who enter by demonstrating the college’s commitment to a sustainable future and inspiring the next generation of leaders in environmentally conscious practices.

“The Kern Center reconsiders the way structures are designed, engineered, and constructed while creating a building that is deeply connected to Hampshire’s mission,” says Bruner/Cott principal Jason Forney. “Responding to Hampshire’s call to action through design is the kind of work that stirs passion. This is why we became architects,” adds Jason Jewhurst, Bruner/Cott principal and lead architect.

A two-time recipient of the AIA National Honor Award for Architecture for MASS MoCA (North Adams, MA) and Harvard University Memorial Hall (Cambridge, MA), this is Bruner/Cott’s first COTE Top Ten Award.
