Designed for downtown Denver, the Museum of Spatial Arts integrates with the context while also creating spaces of reflection. There are voids that create a system of reveals throughout the building. The reveals connect the site context to the facade, as well as connecting the gallery spaces to each other. The reveals create moments of reflection and enable fluid circulation. As one journeys through the museum, more is revealed. The facade helps to tell the gradual story of the transitioning reveals.
