Marquez Hall is a facility for the Petroleum Engineering Department at the Colorado School of Mines designed to reflect the changing role of energy from petroleum to renewables. The growing needs of the prominent engineering program and gateway to a new Earth Science Quad are accommodated.

Forming an edge of a pedestrian walkway that connecting two main quadrangles, the siting enhances the extraordinary views of the surrounding mountains. The L-shaped plan defines a new courtyard activated with custom designed seating to encourage interaction. The floor plan is comprised of three bars of program. The northern bar houses a combination of graduate and undergraduate laboratories, a 4-D visualization classroom and a drilling simulator room. The southern bar holds offices and support spaces to enhance interaction between students, faculty and research teams. The southeastern wing provides a lecture hall, and four levels of smart classrooms and seminar rooms.

The transparent exhibition space and lobby marks a potent position on the campus thoroughfare and the building’s main entrance. Structurally glazed glass walls hang from the 60 foot cantilevered roof. A series of layers, constructed of glass curtain wall, aluminum plate, and terra cotta cladding express the program. Metal louvers shade the interior spaces, allowing views of the distant buttes from classroom and laboratory spaces.
