Doors Open Denver: Explore Our City Inside Out
Saturday & Sunday, April 25-26, 2015

Denver, CO – The 11th annual Doors Open Denver, presented by Denver Architectural Foundation, is the premier event showcasing Denver inside out. On Saturday, April 25 and Sunday, April 26, Denver buildings will open their doors to the public for exclusive and rare viewing opportunities, exposing the inside of Denver’s unique urban fabric.

This will be a great opportunity for MURP students to get to know the city they live in, and the built environment around which their careers will be based. MURP instructor Ken Schroeppel and second-year student Maggie Lyons are also serving as members of the Doors Open Denver Planning Committee.

The theme for this year’s event is Denver Classics, Then and Now. 

Headquartered at the newly renovated Union Station, a historic landmark at the center of many new developments, the event will showcase new buildings that are transforming the urban landscape while also complementing historically beloved buildings.

Insider tours guided by architects, landscape architects, historians and other experts add to the richness of the weekend’s offerings. Furthermore, there will be fundraising and kick-off parties and events leading up to and during the Doors Open Denver weekend.
