Memorial Center, University of Colorado

Sensitivity to the Tuscan style and vernacular architecture common to major existing campus buildings provided the primary design direction for this major renovation and expansion. The building was totally transformed to create a thoroughly current student experience while respecting the traditional architecture of this historic campus.
