What if…..?
Critical goals:

2.Materials and methods that demonstrate leadership in sustained health of the planet and its inhabitants shall be incorporated. 
3.The essential nature of water and its processes (capture, movement, use, and cleaning) should be communicated to the end user in a visible, interactive way. 
4.The campus environment will increase the student time outdoors, their learning, and enjoyment by appealing to the senses in multiple ways. 
5.By incorporating interaction, the facility should communicate how much workis needed to create essential elements such as food, water, and power.

“As I spoke with the design and construction team, I was struck by their 
sense of reverence for the contribution they were making to this campus… 
…As I walked across the campus past classroom after classroom of engaged students, 
I felt the reverence, too. 
I’ve never felt a greater sense [of] gratitude for the work of all the scientists, advocates, 
visionaries and builders working to provide the healthiest possible environment for our children. “
