ATLAS Center at the University of Colorado at Boulder
Sunday, January 1, 2006
We are building a new building at the University of Colorado at Boulder, the ATLAS (Alliance for Technology, Learning and Society) Center, that contains many technology-enhanced learning spaces. These include classrooms, an auditorium, a black box theatre, a production studio, a film screening room, and others. One can find quite a bit of information about the building at http://www.colorado.edu/atlas/building/ and about the ATLAS Institute (which I direct) at www.colorado.edu/ATLAS. I think these pages answer many of the questions. It is a 66,000 gsf, $31M project, funded mainly by a student capital construction fee (nearly $21M) and fundraising. We are still working on the model for maintaining the spaces and the equipment, with student course fees likely to play a role. I'm happy to supply more information if people want (and to show folks the building after it opens in August). It is right at the center of our campus and also has a significant exhibition component, very much intended to welcome and draw people in.
