Denver Art Museum Campus
The rehabilitation of Denver Art Museum's North Building and campus include a new Welcome Center with redesigned entries, plazas, outdoor dining and gathering spaces.
The redesign carefully addresses the historic relationship of the Ponti building within the Civic Center Historic District and preserves historic features and mature trees. Redesigned pedestrian circulation and spaces will connect the DAM campus with surrounding buildings and facilities including Denver Public Library, Clyfford Still Museum and Civic Center. The campus design creates a cohesive, holistic setting with a clear and legible sequence of pedestrian movement, and activation of the public realm.
Internal plaza design is inspired by Gio Ponti patterns and materials. Sculptural seat walls and grade changes will define new spaces for educational programming, performance and special events. Kemper Courtyard, a children’s space, will be a place of memorable art installations and an area of discovery.
