2013 SCUP/AIA-CAE Excellence in Architecture for a New Building, Merit Award, Colorado School of Mines

2013 SCUP/AIA-CAE Excellence in Architecture for a New Building, Merit Award, Colorado School of Mines | SCUP Links | Scoop.it

Marquez Hall is the new home of the Petroleum Engineering department, sited to create a vital connection between the existing campus and a future Earth Science Quad. It facilitates connections be­tween students and faculty, departments and disci­plines, campus spaces and the greater geography of the Rocky Mountain Front Range, creates an arrival point to campus from the town of Golden; and provides inviting open space.


The jury said, “ . . . liked the way the building responded to campus context . . . execution is lovely, materials and detailing exemplary . . . design is quite responsive . . .”


The building forms a sunlit southern edge to a new plaza with a public lobby and exhibit spaces. It has three spacial elements: a bar of labs on the north, a bar of faculty offices on the south, and the general classroom wing to the east. Users can easily under­stand and navigate the facility. Interaction between students, faculty and research teams is enhanced.
