My feature and my photography published by Art & Object spotlights the three architectural gems of Denver Art Museum. Read my article at this link with no paywall. I interviewed the DAM’s director, Christoph Heinrich, prior to the DAM’s recent reopening of the $175 million upgrade. Part of the project was the sprucing up of the DAM’s 50-year-old building designed by Gio Ponti. The project also introduced a sparkling new Welcome Center. The Welcome Center features curved glass windows nearly 40′ tall, a new application used for the first time in the building.
One of the best aspects of the upgrade is the opening of the Martin Building’s rooftop terraces with fresh air and fresh views of the city and, in the distance, Colorado’s Front Range of the Rocky Mountains.
