Principal Wells Squier, AIA, takes the helm as President of AIA Colorado

Wells Squier, AIA, Principal of Anderson Hallas has been named this year’s President of AIA Colorado Board of Directors! We look forward to all you and the Board will accomplish in the coming year.

From AIA Colorado’s December 8, 2021 Press Release:

“Colorado continues to experience unprecedented growth,” said 2022 AIA Colorado President Wells Squier, AIA. “While this presents great opportunities for architects and allied professions, it has never been more important for our community to lead strongly and with integrity.”

“Through continued volunteer engagement, virtual platforms that expanded the reach of program offerings, and creative adaptations of award events and the Practice+Design Conference, our organization and community have thrived through these otherwise challenging times,” said Squier. “Although uncertainty remains, my hope for the coming year is that we’ll have the opportunity to safely reconvene in person, while still leveraging virtual platforms to maintain robust participation and engagement of members, all the while continuing to adhere to the renewed imperatives and guiding principles we are committed to advance. We will move forward with purpose, never satisfied with the status quo.”

Red Rocks’ Mount Morrison CCC Camp is a case study for economic recovery

Mount Morrison Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Camp is getting front-page attention as a case study in economic recovery by supporting programs that engage workforces like Historicorps, a national historic-preservation nonprofit based in Denver.

Built in 1935-6, the historic 18-acre Mount Morrison CCC Camp served as living quarters for the builders of the world-famous National Historic Landmark Red Rocks Amphitheater. The camp is one of two collections of intact CCC buildings in the U.S. built as part of President Roosevelt’s New Deal economic recovery plan to put people back to work following the Great Depression. It is considered nationally significant under the theme, “Developing the American Economy” within the National Register of Historic Places.

Anderson Hallas Architects provided design services for several projects including, rehabilitation of Barracks #1 and a master plan to reactivate Red Rocks CCC Camp with Mundus Bishop Design.
