Inspired by an orchid leaf and designed by renowned architecture firm Perkins+Will along with groundbreaking landscape architect Cornelia Hahn Oberlander and Sharp & Diamond, the 19,000 square-foot, $21.9-million facility features rammed earth walls, geothermal and solar energy, on-site water capture and treatment, and the most environmentally responsible building materials, making it entirely carbon- and energy-neutral.
