Beautiful Butch Buildings

The Clyfford Still Museum is a Simple Yet Imposing Structure

— August 19, 2011 — Art & Design
The Clyfford Still Museum embodies the tough-guy persona that the artist of the same name often displayed. Since it is dedicated to the art work of abstract-expressionist Clyfford Still, it is only appropriate that the building is instilled with the essence of his existence.

Designed by architect Brad Cloepfil of Portland-based Allied Works Architecture, the Clyfford Still Museum sports a rough, cast-in-place concrete facade that perfectly complements Still's huge and jagged paintings. Although this beautiful butch building seems to have a rather simple design, its bunker-like presence is quite impressive, and even daunting.

Opening this fall, the Clyfford Still Museum will be home to a whopping 94% of Still's total creative output. The Clyfford Still Museum will definitely become a must-see attraction in Denver, Colorado.
Trend Themes
1. Minimalist Architecture - Opportunity for innovative architects to create visually striking buildings with simple yet imposing designs.
2. Artistic Integration - Potential for artists and architects to collaborate in creating buildings that showcase and complement artwork.
3. Destination Museums - Growing trend of museums becoming major tourist attractions, presenting opportunities for cultural and economic growth.
Industry Implications
1. Architecture - Architects can leverage minimalist design principles to create captivating buildings that stand out.
2. Art - Artists and architects can collaborate to integrate art into architectural designs, enhancing the overall aesthetic experience.
3. Tourism - Museums that offer unique and captivating experiences can attract tourists, benefiting the local economy.
