Colorado School of Mines | Center for Technology and Learning Media II

  • $5.3M
  • 20,000 SF
  • 2007

The primary goal of this project was to build an addition to the Center for Technology and Learning Media (CTLM) building to house the computing center functions currently located in the Green Center. Since the CTLM building is operated as a satellite facility of the Computer Center, this project centralizes high technology and campus computing functions in a single location, thus yielding operational efficiencies.

While the new building essentially replicates the current spaces in the Green Center (in terms of function and overall size), a goal for CTLM II was to give the computing center and its personnel an identifiable and cohesive departmental home.

Another goal for the addition was to make it functionally and visually an extension of the current CTLM building. Users within the two buildings now feel as if the two buildings are one, and easily traverse between the two. CTLM II has its own identity and does not merely copy the architectural language of the original building.

The exterior treatment of CTLM II takes its clues and direction from CTLM, as well as the larger campus surroundings. The building looks related to CTLM, yet has a character of its own.
