Smithsonian Bocas del Toro Research Station

The Smithsonian Institution created a research campus on Colon Island in Bocas del Toro, Panama, located off the Caribbean coast on a sensitive site next to a mangrove swamp. Known as the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI), the design for its large “green” laboratory building is based on "net zero impact" -- collecting its own water, treating its own waste, and generating its own energy.
