BAUHAUS AND THE ENVIRONMENT New College of Florida���s recently constructed Academic Center features a number of forward-thinking techniques and strategies to reduce the building���s environmental impact, such as carbon dioxide room sensors that measure air quality, toilets that flush using rainwater collected from underground tanks and cisterns and highly-reflective roofing and paving materials that reduce heat absorption. At night, the building exterior is lit partially by energy-efficient LED lights. Photos by Arielle Scherr
