Gio Ponti's Denver Art Museum: AUDITORIUM TICKET

Wednesday, October 06, 2021 - 6:00 PM

Running Time: 1 hour

The Italian architect Gio Ponti was one of the most imaginative and innovative designers of his time. Over the course of his sixty-year 60-year career, Ponti was a tireless inventor of numerous concepts and realities, from designs like the spoon to the skyscraper.


These diverse and prolific achievements led to Ponti's hiring in 1965, at the age of seventy-four, to collaborate with Denver-based James Sudler Associates on the design of a new home for the Denver Art Museum, completed in 1971.


As he shares insights on the Lanny and Sharon Martin Building's inception and unique design, Darrin Alfred, Curator of Architecture and Design, will reveal how themes, materials, and aesthetic developments found in this captivating structure had animated the entirety of Ponti's wide-ranging career such as a pursuit of weightlessness, the extensive use of tile, and a modern, streamlined appearance that harkens back to classical prototypes.
