The 31,500-square-foot building will sit in the shadow—literally—of the Denver Art Museum’s 2006 addition, designed by Daniel Libeskind.
In contrast to the Libeskind building, with its jutting angles of titanium, Cloepfil’s museum is a two-story, rectangular structure of textured concrete and glass set in a tree-lined plaza. Visitors will enter it by way of a cantilevered concrete canopy. A wooden staircase will take them to the second-floor galleries, where Still’s work will be displayed in 10,000 square feet of exhibition space. Natural light, via clerestory windows, will illuminate most of the galleries. (to find out more..)
