Cherrington Hall was built in 1966 to house the Graduate School of International Studies (GSIS) and is an example of International Style architecture. Local Denver architect Edwin A. Francis was selected for the design of the building, which was built by the Pinkard Construction Company. Perkins and Will Architects took over the project when Edwin Francis died during construction. Copy 3 is faded to brown.
