As I continue my posts on places in and around Denver, the next featured location is the Denver Public Library.
Michael Graves, architect of the Denver Public Library, is hailed worldwide as a co-founder of the Postmodern school of architecture. Postmodernists reject modern skyscrapers for the classical forms, natural materials and colors of centuries past.
Construction of the Denver Library was funded by a bond issue approved by a 75 percent majority of Denver voters in 1990. In 1995, the new Denver Library opened to nationwide acclaim. It is now the largest library between Los Angeles and Chicago, and each year over a million people visit the Denver Public Library.
Have a great day!
