Center for Advanced Visualization and Experiential Analysis (CAVEA)
Theater and Collaboration
We start every engagement as an exploratory conversation, to develop an individualized solution unique to your needs.
CAVEA was designed as a feature of MSU Denver's LEED Certified Jordan Student Success Building which opened in 2013. The center was envisioned as a community resource to facilitate collaborative, complex decision-making.
The CAVEA Theater boasts 270-degree visual projection, immersive surround-sound audio, stereo-3D projection options, 500 square feet of whiteboard, and two breakout rooms. Custom event design adapts to meet a diversity of uses from keynote and capstone presentations to live-stream and multi-point broadcast, scenario planning, forensic analysis, pitch sessions, design charrettes, conferences, customized lessons, and executive summits.
Thank you all for a very successful board retreat! It was a tremendous success and a great beginning to our discussion around growth and the evolution of the foundation.

The CAVEA Theater provided a unique venue to address complex water planning issues faced across the country. I would highly recommend the CAVEA to organizations seeking solutions to complex, multi-faceted issues.

Principal / CEO,
[My event in CAVEA] was one of the biggest moments of growth I’ve had in the course of my internship. I am so grateful for the role that you and the rest of the fabulous CAVEA staff had in that experience.

The facility was certainly impressive; but the experience was elevated to "stellar status" by the exceptional efforts of [staff]. They not only encouraged a unique learning experience, they embraced the students and community participants with a contagious enthusiasm for MSU Denver.
In partnership with West High School Debate Team
…Everything came together and worked seamlessly, and that doesn't happen without [staff] support. Sometimes you feel obligated to give high ratings… but truly, 10 out of 10 across the board.

...a wonderful place to work and brainstorm ideas...
Co-Created Immersive Experiences
A unique, immersive environment for discussion and discovery
MSU Denver's English Professor, Janet McClaskey, worked with the CAVEA team to create a physical experience designed to stimulate discussion of themes addressed by artist Yayoi Kusama.
CAVEA's Breakout Rooms can extend a collaboration experience beyond the Theater.
