LASP Space Technology Research Center Addition
University of Colorado Research Park
Boulder, Colorado
This building is an addition to a building designed by NAC in 1990. It provides additional laboratory, office, and clean room facilities for the design, fabrication, and testing of space instruments by the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics. The previous LASP building was the first building designed for the University of Colorado Research Park. It was a contemporary interpretation of Boulder main campus architecture. For this building, the University requested a more literal interpretation with direct references to the historic campus, but at the same time referencing and being compatible with the existing LASP building. By incorporating details and materials of the existing building, with a direct reference to the main campus in building massing, both goals were achieved. The project was designed for LEED certification. Responsibilities included programming, master planning, and full service design and management.
