The office building’s namesake, David Brower, a Berkeley native who died in 2000, was the first executive director of the Sierra Club and founder of several other environmental organizations, including the League of Conservation Voters.

Many of these systems are explained and their performance tracked in real time on a dashboard on view in the lobby and on the center’s Web site.
