Located adjacent to the new football stadium on the Colorado State University campus, the 45,000 square foot Richardson Design Center was designed with campus connectivity in. The building is situated as a center for multi-disciplinary collaboration and encourages pedestrian flow through the facility, inviting the campus community to engage with the resources within. The building supports ideation, prototyping and fabrication, and showcases the creative process through strategically located and highly visible collaboration and display/critique spaces. The workshop environment has a strong connection to the outdoors via overhead doors that connect the fabrication spaces to outdoor work spaces in the oasis.
