Daniel Libeskind: Denver Art Museum, Frederic C. Hamilton Building
---

Three part series looking at the reknowned architect Daniel Libeskind. Libeskind first gained worldwide attention when his haunting, zigzag-shaped Jewish Museum opened in Berlin in 1999. After his dramatic urban design plan for Ground Zero was selected by city and state officials in 2002, Libeskind became a household name in America. Now, with his first work of architecture to be realized in the U.S. -- an addition to the Denver Art Museum -- the American public has a chance to examine his unconventional talents. In this filmed tour of the Denver Art Museum's Hamilton Building, Libeskind explains his unusual, titanium-clad, shard-like building. The dazzling geometry of the exterior is reflected inside to provide spectacular spaces and arresting angles for viewing contemporary art. The sculptural building of fractured planes insouciantly claims its status as a major landmark in American museum architecture.
