Collaboration with CU Denver College of Architecture & Planning
Location: Atrium, History Colorado Center
Duration: June 11, 2021–Fall 2021

The History Colorado Center’s front porch, lobby, and beautiful Anschutz-Hamilton Hall will host creative interventions by students and architects from the University of Colorado Denver this summer. Three collaborative, investigative projects are currently in development. Work featured in the lobby will re-imagine what the neighborhood of Five Points could be today without prior racial segregation, ongoing societal discrimination, and gentrification. Creators have been examining Afrofuturism to focus their design proposals. 


These exhibits are part of Building Denver, a sweeping retrospective, present-day examination and a bold look ahead at how our city has been designed and the consequences that have emerged in our physical, social, and emotional spaces.
