Architecture City Guide: Denver

This week our Architecture City Guide heads to the “Mile-High City”. In the shadows of the Rocky Mountains, Denver’s architecture can be as dramatic and serene as its surrounding landscape. From the moment your plane touches down at the Denver International Airport you are immersed in state-of-the-art architecture. We have included a dozen places to go once you arrive. Where else would you visit? Please leave suggestions of buildings a Denver visitor shouldn’t miss.

The Architecture City Guide: Denver list and corresponding map after the break!

Looking at the projects coming soon to Denver, you might need make a second trip in the near future. One we have already covered is the Denver International Airport South Terminal by Santiago Calatrava.

    In Boulder I.M. Pei designed the NCAR facility. That is well worth seeing if you visit the area.

    The existing Denver Art Museum structure, added to by Libeskind, is a delightfully odd hard-edge abstraction interpretation of a gothic fortress by Gio Ponti.
