See the hidden gems of sustainable contemporary architecture in the Pioneer Valley between Springfield and Brattleboro. In conjunction with the exhibition Greening the Valley: Sustainable Architecture in the Pioneer Valley, the University Gallery is offering a free tour of the most extraordinary energy efficient contemporary houses in the Pioneer Valley. The tour spans a geographical area from East Longmeadow to Brattleboro, VT. It also spans a variety of buildings from apartments to residences, and a range of building types, from communal villages to state-of-the-art private homes. Special sites include the Beaver Lodge in Ashfield, a LEED Platinum certified educational center, and BluHomes, a first-of-a-kind manufacturing company of Green Houses, which just moved its operation to East Longmeadow. This tour demonstrates the vitality of sustainable practices in the Pioneer Valley and the commitment of our communities toward environmental, social, and economic sustainability in the region.
