Thanks to a landmark gift from Nancy and Curt Richardson, co-founders of OtterBox and Blue Ocean Enterprises, Colorado State University soon will have an iconic design center that will showcase and elevate several of its signature academic programs. The Richardson Design Center will provide a new state-of-the-art creative space for students and faculty in programs across campus, including interior design, design and merchandising, landscape architecture, art, engineering, product development, entrepreneurship, construction management, and others. The center will create space to grow CSU's design-related fields of study, with anticipated new courses and possibilities for a minor in design. The goal is to make CSU one of the top 10 schools in the country for design.
Total cost of the design center will be $16.5 million. CSU will continue to fundraise for the project and is offering companies and individuals passionate about design the opportunity to name interior spaces. Be part of the next generation of design at CSU, and make a gift today.
