The University Of Denver Stem Horizons
Creating Innovative Spaces for Innovative Thinkers
The University of Denver (DU) has recently announced their latest project, STEM Horizons, which includes the development of a new research laboratory building and the renovation of both the Seeley G. Mudd Science Building and the Boettcher Sciences Building. The $100-million project will become a hub of innovation for the university, and the new front door for DU’s College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics as it provides state-of-the-art collaborative learning spaces where students develop the skills necessary to succeed in the natural sciences.
Not only will the new building provide a focused and intentional place for campus researchers, but it will also frame an outdoor interactive social space for students, faculty, and staff. Civitas is teaming up with Anderson Mason Dale Architects to create this integrated outdoor campus space that reflects DU’s commitment to the advancement of ideas, innovation and design.
Stormwater infrastructure and rain gardens will also be included to maximize long-term sustainability. Throughout the design process, the design team will work with the neighborhoods, the City of Denver and DU to integrate the site and buildings and weave together the fabric of the campus via strategic site planning and landscape architecture.
