Denver Pavilions, Denver, CO

Architect: ELS Architecture and Urban Design, Berkeley, CA

This two-block multi-plex is home to tenants such as Niketown, Hard Rock Cafe, Virgin Records, and United Artists Cinemas. Charles M. Salter Associates provided recommendations for sound insulation and for the reduction of ventilation system noise in the building shell. Special emphasis was placed on providing an appropriate acoustical environment for the movie theaters. According to Mayor Wellington E. Webb, "In its four years of operation, the Denver Pavilions has transformed...downtown. Today, there is a rich balance that has really helped to complete our community's vision of downtown as a thriving area to work, live, shop and enjoy."
