The Colorado School of Mines (CSM) in Golden, CO has a unique mission in the state: To provide top quality education in their fields of specialty – energy, mining and minerals science and engineering. In order to further that mission the School identified the goal of building the Center for Technology and Learning Media. Growth in enrollment and the increasing use of technologically rich educational techniques at CSM generated the need on campus for classroom, studio lab and lecture spaces that are equipped for educational technology.

The new building provides spaces and technologies that complement the School’s current educational methodologies and anticipate future changes. Flexibility is a key strategy in allowing for unknown future directions.

In keeping with the School’s ethic of responsible use of the earth’s resources, the CTLM building is energy efficient and strives toward environmental sustainability.

A public program component of lobby and informal breakout spaces knit the building into the campus both spatially and socially, engaging the outdoor lawn spaces and embracing the afforded natural light.
