The Kickapoo Center

The Kickapoo Center will serve as an education hall and utility building for the Kickapoo Nature Conservancy. It is also a model for energy efficient, low cost housing and will be a nearly zero energy building. The solar and wind powered main residence at Kickapoo was also designed by GPD and has been featured in Eco-Structure magazine and "Worlds Greenest Homes" on the Planet Green TV network.
