The Gateway Center transforms a barren parking lot into a striking symbol of environmental stewardship and climate action leadership. Project goals included expressing this 100-year-old institution’s roots as a forestry school, reducing the overall carbon footprint of the campus through net positive renewable energy production, and creating hands-on teaching and research tools. The Gateway Center demonstrates ESF’s mission to advance the knowledge and skills needed for the stewardship of our natural and designed environments.
