The new History Colorado Center (1200 Broadway in downtown Denver), will officially open to the public on Saturday, April 28. The nearly 200,000 square foot, 110 million dollar center was designed by Colorado raised architect David Tryba. The
building incorporates many features, which not only make it “green,” but also are designed to showcase local Colorado building materials. There are Douglas fir doors, a beetle-kill-pine ceiling, a terrazzo floor made out of the glass from recycled beer bottles, and figuring prominently throughout the building, sandstone from Lyons. And, continuing with the “green” theme, Lyons residents will be able to use their free community Eco-Bus passes to visit Denver’s newest museum.
