Machado Silvetti Architects and Fentress Architects designed the Denver Art Museum's enhancements. The two American firms added modern updates to the Denver landmark, initially designed by Gio Ponti and opened in 1971.
The museum is located in the heart of Denver in the Golden Triangle district. Now featuring a rounded and glazed welcome center, the building's modern enhancements have been underway since the firms released their plans in 2016. Other modifications include outdoor areas and reconfigured galleries. In addition, the architects added a space for education, events, and dining to the building's layout to engage the community further as they visit the establishment. Denver's Art Museum was one of the first high-rise art museums built in North America.
