contributed by rtaube

Sustainable Prototype is a collaboration between Studio 804 at the University of Kansas and The 5.4.7 Arts Center in Greensburg, KS. The construction and delivery was provided to the 5.4.7 Arts Center on the one year anniversary of the tornado that devastated Greensburg, Kansas. Although the building was developed for long term use by the Arts Center, its immediate use as the first completed public facility serving as a beacon for the community and its ambitious rebuilding efforts was a motivating factor in its design. It is the first LEED Platinum building in the state of Kansas, as well as the first in the U.S. that is designed and built by students. The building is a modular prefab design, reducing waste and minimizing site impact. It also combines many active energy systems including photovoltaics, geothermal, and wind turbines. The systems are expected to be able to provide for 80 to 120% of building loads, depending on the season and wind speed.
