Web Abstract: 
The Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C. is one of a string of educational buildings designed by Kieran Timberlake that merge instruction, sustainability, and behavior modification. Outside, a water-filtration tank attached to the wetlands doubles as an information kiosk that explains the ecological processes at work, joining other explanatory wall texts inside. Mechanical controls, placed in prominent locations, are highlighted rather than hidden, just as monitors throughout the building give students real-time updates of the building's environmental systems.
