Denver Public Library by Michael Graves - Travel Log

posted on: October 4, 2016

In a downtown full of grey colonial and modern glass buildings, the Denver Public Library stands out like a cartoon character of whimsey and fun!  It makes sense that Michael Graves would be the architect to create something so bold and and full of crayon box features.

The fun doesn't stop at the exterior.  Check out what how the Kid's Program area ceiling was turned into a permanent circus tent...

The real treat for me was seeing this fully wooden peg constructed mine shaft build into the top round portion of the building, which reminds Denver locals of the mining heritage that helped put this town on the map.

 If you find yourself in Denver, definitely stop in and wander this fabulous public space!
