Timeless Pieces of Boulder’s Architectural History

June 16th, 2019

With the holidays over, we figured we should refresh our minds with something different today. Boulder has a very interesting architectural history, especially the university campus. We will touch on some defining Boulder architectural projects which you have probably seen around town. Next time you’re out and about, maybe you’ll encounter some of these oh-so-Boulder building projects. The University Campus Of course we cannot skim Boulder’s architectural past without bringing up the University of Colorado campus. It began with the all-brick Old Main and soon grew into several... Read More

How I Became a Full-Time Airstreamer: Part II

August 9th, 2018

In part one of this post, which you can read here, I addressed why I lived a very regimented life for nearly two decades (and, yes, I’m not so naïve to think that I don’t still possess this quality – I simply know that I now manifest it in a way that feels healthy to who I am as a person). The second part of this post, which you are obviously reading at this very moment, addresses more specifically HOW I got here. To buy an Airstream and commit to a full-time nomadic lifestyle, more or less, was not an overnight decision. In fact, I started looking at them a year before actually biting the... Read More

Portrait of Matt

Matt is an instructor in the Technology, Arts and Media (TAM) Program at CU Boulder. His latest pursuit challenges the idea of a controller in the world of video games. This April, Matt and several of his colleagues will be hosting what he calls the “Alt-cade”, an alternative-control gaming arcade hosted in the Black Box Theater of the ATLAS Institute on CU’s campus. Matt’s alternative-control game is a “location based video game” focusing on “the monotony of the workplace.” In the game, the user will physically carry out tasks and complete objectives with two other players in... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

February 1st, 2017

Meet Diana. She’s a CU Buff from Westminster, Colorado. After spending five weeks at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia last summer, Diana decided she wanted to attend school somewhere close to home. The humidity alone was enough to send her back to Colorado. She told me she likes to visit home a couple of times every month so she can be with her family… and take advantage of the delicious home cooked meals of course. Diana is now studying to be a graphic designer. In fact, I caught up with her just after she’d finished designing a movie poster in class.  Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

September 24th, 2016

  Success by design. That is how you could describe Juliana’s journey from Washington state to Boulder. Juliana is in the ENVD program and you can tell with just one look in her apartment. She works at a desk that she designed and built, her bed sits on the floor because she has not built the frame just yet, and a lamp she designed lights her friend’s apartment across the street. Returning from a semester in Denmark and a summer internship in New York, she will finish her college career when she graduates this spring! Good luck Juliana!  Read More

Ski Resorts Drastically Boosting Sustainability

December 14th, 2014

Most of the ski resorts in the Rocky Mountains have environmental protection policies because the mountains they are built upon are considered National Parks. These ski resorts are required to include a certain level of eco-friendliness, commitment to environmental stewardship, and commitment to environmental restoration. Resorts are often a part of the community they are in, especially in a ski town.  Resorts offer many jobs and include shops, restaurants and residences.  Because the resorts are at the heart of the local economies in these ski towns, when a ski resort uses less energy from... Read More
