The new Clyfford Still Museum, by Allied Works, is located next to the Daniel Libeskind-designed Denver Art Museum.
Brad Cloepfil walks through the second-floor galleries of Denver’s Clyfford Still Museum, taking it all in. It’s the first time the founding principal of Portland, Oregon-based Allied Works Architecture has seen his building since construction was completed, and clearly he likes what he sees. In a few weeks, the walls will be covered with Still’s paintings and drawings, in time for the museum’s November 18 opening. But for now, the building is empty, a blank slate. Cloepfil seems to relish the moment. Every now and then, he snaps a photo with his black Lumix camera.
