Project of the Month

Denver Art Museum’s Glassy Addition

The expanded and reimagined Denver Art Museum is part of an overall campus reunification and building renovation project designed by Machado Silvetti and Fentress Architects. It includes a new Anna and John J. Sie Welcome Center, which features an elliptical glass event and program space. The 50,000-square-foot welcome center’s second story façade features a series of 25-foot-tall, 8-foot-wide curved, structural glass panels with insulating glazing. The high-performance structural glass, made up of three layers of 3/8-inch thick glass, was specifically fabricated for the welcome center. The glass was fabricated by Tianjin Northglass; Sentech Architectural Systems was responsible for the façade design and engineering, and Harmon was the façade subcontractor.
