The 5.4.7 Arts Center in Greensburg, Kansas was delivered in 5 pieces in the Spring of 2008. The Greensburg Arts Center  was conceived and constructed by twenty two University of Kansas students participating in Studio 804, the senior graduate design/build studio at KUís School of Architecture and Urban Planning.

The 5.4.7 Arts Center is the first LEED Platinum building that was designed and constructed by students. Platinum is the highest rating level for the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating System. The Arts Center was only the 67th building in the United States that was approved as LEED Platinum, and the first in Kansas.

Although the 5.4.7 Arts Center is the first building in Greensburg to achieve LEED Platinum certification, it will soon be joined by others. Greensburg has passed a resolution requiring that all city owned buildings must be LEED Platinum certified. Greensburg is the first city in the nation to make such this commitment.

The 5.4.7 Arts Center is a community arts center intended to raise awareness of fine arts, both visual and performing, make arts accessible to everyone and provide an environment to create and learn through classes, exhibits and performances. But a visit to the Arts Center is sure to include a tour of the building and the many energy efficient features that makes the building a work of art.

The 5.4.7 Arts Center has water conserving "green" rest rooms, photovoltaic solar panels, geothermal climate control, recycled building materials and three Kestrel Wind Turbines from South Africa. The Arts Center produces enough power to meet most of the building's needs.
