Denver International Airport
8500 Peña Blvd., Denver, 303-342-2000 • flydenver.com
Denver airport’s internationally recognized peaked roof was designed by renowned Airport designers, Fentress Architects with a dual resemblance to Colorado’s snow-capped mountains and Native American teepees, which dotted the Great Plains in Colorado’s beginning. Natural light bathes the terminal’s interior via clerestory windows, curtain-walls and the translucent fabric roof. The terminal’s peaked roof has become well-known and admired by travelers worldwide. A survey by the American Institute of Architects ranked the terminal 4 on its list of “Favorite American Architecture” landmarks and Business Traveler magazine readers voted Denver the “Best Airport in North America” from 2005 to 2008.
Visitors are in for an extraordinary experience when they pass through Denver Airport. Artists worked with architects, designers, and construction companies early in the airport design process to create a seamless integration of art, architecture, and environment. The result is the first phase of artwork at the airport, a series of sculptures, murals, and installations creating one of the most extensive airport art programs in the world.
Denver International Airport’s exhibition program includes several venues with changing collections. A theme is developed for each exhibit from an artistic point of view and interpretation. Exhibits are changed frequently so travelers can experience new examples of artistic creativity.
