Denver Museum of Nature & Science
HHPA’s planning called for four huge perforated aluminum rings in the West Atrium of the renovated museum. The soaring rings needed to link the Museum’s nature and science exhibits, and provide a compelling setting for the dramatic views to the city and mountains beyond.
Spitz designed meshing rings from 31 to 60 feet in diameter that cut through the multi-floor atrium. With low-profile framing and clean fasteners and supports, the cylinders carve through the space creating balanced motion and crisp curves.
