Denver Art Museum Architecture Photos

The Denver Art Museum expanded into a free-form building by architect Daniel Libeskind in 2006. This metal skinned crystal named the Frederic C. Hamilton Building points across the road at the 1971 modern structure by Gio Ponti and James Sudler which recalls a 28-sided medieval fortress with over one million glass tiles on its reflective skin.
