I enjoyed an interesting architecture tour and talk by Darrin Alfred, Curator of Architecture, Design, & Graphics at the Denver Art Museum. This FUN experience was designed by Brian Corrigan of Futures United Network.
A few things I learned:
~The North Building is getting its face-lift by @fentressarchitects and @machadosilvetti.
~It is the only completed Gio Ponte building in North America.
~It uses 1 million tiles! .
~Custom curved glass will be used for the welcome center.
~Gio Ponte originally wanted a castle like moat around building.
~This was the first high rise art museum building in U.S.
~Gio Ponte liked diamond shapes (notice the diamond and other window shapes.).
~The rooftop will have amazing views of the Rockies.
