  • 2016

The Anna and John J. Sié International Relations Complex is the new home for the Josef Korbel School of International Studies, as well as 10 research centers and institutes. As an addition to the existing Ben Cherrington Hall, the new building provides more classrooms, public gathering space, offices and a one-of-a-kind event space with beautiful mountain views. The Sié Complex allows for more collaboration between research centers, and provides spaces with state-of-the-art technology to allow students and faculty to simulate real world experiences.

The building is a signature project for the University of Denver. Located in the campus core, it sits within the heart of the university’s Arboretum and provides a backdrop for the Harper Humanities Gardens, to the north. The southern façade is enhanced by a dynamic landscape that includes a permaculture garden and an outdoor space for expansion of the café, an outdoor classroom, and special events. The building’s most prominent element is the tower’s spire, an icon on campus, standing out amount the “village” of towers by its blue tile roof. The blue tile recognizes the heritage of the donor, and ties the new addition to the existing Sié Chéou-Kang Center.
