dc.description.abstract Climate change is becoming an increasing concern for this generation and the ones to follow us. Schools are teaching children to retain information on specialized fields through increasingly hands on methods, but more should be teaching about sustainability through architecture. This thesis tests the idea that an institutional building can teach about climate change, shows the effects of it on the planet and daily life, and demonstrates ways to try and reverse it. To accomplish this the building has to be a demonstration of sustainable practices. The form of the building builds from the topography of the site as well as the diagram by Corbusier diagramming the sun during the equinoxes and solstices. Each gallery space is meant to be fun and interactive. When visitors approach the second floor they will follow the central wall to see and interact with all galleries and can begin or end with the large demonstration exhibit. There is one large space dedicated to exhibits that would rotate demonstrations. The overall goal is to teach through demonstration, and at the very least encourage people to apply conservation values to their every day lives. en_US
