USM Wishcamper Center

The Wishcamper Center on the University of Southern Maine - Portland campus is home to the Muskie School of Public Service, among other things I assume. It was recently opened and I think it turned out pretty well. Some neat facts about the building can be found here, such as:

-The building is heated and cooled by geo-thermal energy from wells drilled 1,500 ft. into the earth.
-Rain water is being collected off the roof and recycled.

  3. Great shot. I think it shows that the rear of the building has more character than the front.

    The building is named after a donor:
