Denver Art Museum Campus
Rehabilitation design of Denver Art Museum’s North Building reactivates the civic space, while honoring architect Geo Ponti's original Mid-Century Modern design. The redesigned campus connects a new welcome center to outdoor dining and gathering spaces and integrates a fluid sequence of pedestrian movement. The original intent of Gio Ponti’s design was honored by incorporating patterns and materials inspired by his original work, and by retaining historic relationships between buildings and preserving historic features and trees. The redesign incorporates sculptural seat walls, seamless grade changes, an elliptical garden, and a children’s art courtyard.
