The completion of Denver Art Museum’s (DAM) ambitious North Building project coincides with the building’s 50th anniversary in 2021. Designed by world-renowned Italian architect Gio Ponti and Denver-based James Sudler Associates, the North Building opened to the public in 1971. When renovations are complete, it will house the majority of DAM’s permanent collection galleries.

As part of the project, a new elliptical two-story welcome center is being constructed and visually connects the Denver Art Museum campus, which also includes the Hamilton Building. Measuring in at 50,000 square feet, the welcome center will feature visitor-centric amenities such as a restaurant, quick-service café, improved ticketing, state-of-the-art event space and more. Among other key facets of the North Building project are expanding gallery spaces for growing design and Western American art collections and completing Ponti’s original design for visitor access to seventh-floor views.

So far, webcams and Zoom meetings have been an essential part of 2020. While digital options are functional placeholders for meetings, chatting with a coworker over Skype doesn’t always set up a team for success. Human connection is vital to team building, and hosting safe, small meetings is a great way to revitalize teams after months of working from home.
