Celebrate Spring 2015 and Colorado Architecture Month with the WORKSHOP8 posse.

Every April, we observe Colorado Architecture Month, a 30-day appreciation of Colorado architecture and design hosted by The American Institute of Architects Colorado chapter (AIA Colorado).

During the month, you can attend a series of public events throughout the state which highlight the importance of architecture in our every day lives and encourages the community to see why design matters.

This month, WORKSHOP8 is participating in two awesome events:

4/25/15
Stanley Marketplace Preview: Hard Hat Tour

A team of Denver locals is turning the former Stanley Aviation building into Stanley Marketplace, a food hall and retail hub that’s also the biggest adaptive re-use project in the state. Visit Stanley for a close look at how a post-war modern manufacturing facility is being transformed into a must-visit food-centric urban marketplace. Hear from the project’s developers, construction company, and architects. Hard hats, vests, snacks and beverages, and a glimpse of the future of community-inspired retail will be provided.

Marcel, Graham and Chelsea will be on hand to answer your questions about WORKSHOP8’s role in the project.

Tickets are required and you can get them here: http://doorsopendenver.com/tours
