Denver Art Museum

Architect Daniel Libeskind was commissioned to design the expansion of the Denver Art Museum accommodating the complete collection in the Frederic C. Hamilton Building, now called the North building. He was inspired by the nearby Rocky Mountains, so finding square walls or 90 degree angles here will be difficult. Libeskind’s design consists of geometric, titanium-clad angles reflected from mountain peaks and rock crystals. Located at 100 West 14th Avenue Parkway in Denver, Colorado, the museum was completed in 2006. Upon entering, one’s attention is quickly drawn to the grand staircase with constantly changing geometric shapes drawing the eyes up and around the walkways leading to the galleries. For those that enjoy wide angle photography, this is one of the few interior spaces allowing for use of super wide lenses to compliment the surrounding extreme and unusual angles.
