Moving back to the usual architectural posts, but still from January’s road trip. We made a quick stop at the Denver Art Museum designed by Daniel Libeskind, which has long been on my list of locations I’d like to photograph. Unfortunately, we didn’t have time to stop inside the museum, the line was over an hour long due to the opening of the Dior exhibit as well as it being a free day. Guess I’ll just have to go back.
When I first saw images of this building a few years ago, I could have sworn it was a Frank Gehry design. The materials and the deconstructivism style are very much like Gehry’s, the only difference that jumps out is the lack of curves you often see in his designs. Libeskind’s is far more angular.
The weather was beautiful with clear blue skies, which plays nicely with the stainless steel.
Head here for the black & white versions 🙂
