Sustainability is the future. This interpretive center is a newly proposed destination for the small town of Limon, Colorado. Its mission is to educate and inspire its visitors on the alternative energies available in solar, wind, hydro, geo-thermal, and biofuel resources. These sustainable power sources will be put on display for both education and interaction. They are also intended to help power the facility. The shape and orientation of the building is meant to maximize daylight and minimize solar heat gain, while insulated concrete forms contribute to the high-performing enclosure. The project is also scheduled to have an indoor/outdoor swimming pool, rooftop grill/bar with green-roof terrace, and a tornado shelter in the basement.
