In its realisation the building meets all the criteria set forth when a permanent home for MCA was first envisioned:
- A DESIGN THAT SUPPORTS RATHER THAN DEFINES THE MUSEUM'S MISSION. The design clearly articulates the Museum's exhibition and program requirements.
- A FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE PROJECT. The construction cost for the new building is €10 million.
- AN ENVIRONMENTALLY-EFFICIENT BUILDING. MCA is actively pursuing LEED certification, which would make MCA the first contemporary art museum in the country to achieve such status.MCA's visionary project is a vital component of Denver's growing cultural landscape and complements other important cultural development projects, contributing to the city's economic strength and towards its growing reputation as one of the most exciting cities in the United States.
