Denver Arts Complex


The Denver Performing Arts Complex is the nation’s largest non-profit theater company. Located in the heart of Downtown Denver, the theater is the region’s primary destination for theater, stage, and symphony. To improve user and patron experience, the Arts Complex took on a study in order to make mobility improvements for people traveling to, from, and around the facility. The study investigates surrounding travel and user patterns to identify near-term operational recommendations and future recommendations. Livable Cities Studio developed a conceptual framework to emphasize user experiences through public realm improvements and new and creative wayfinding techniques. The public realm concept features colorful markings and graphics to make the venue more welcoming to visitors, while strengthening the Complex’s connections to public spaces Downtown.
