The Denver Public Library is known for its architectural beauty. It has books, of course, but it also has paintings, colors, and brilliant designs. Designed by Michael Graves in 1985, this building is a mishmash of old and new objects. In the Conference Room, a room which the Prime Ministers and Presidents came from all around the world, has a pyramid-like design. The table in the middle of the room has a design to represent the mountains and a sunset. This room, along with a lot of other rooms, has curly maple wood. this specific type of wood is supposed to last long and be hard to damage. The only exception to the curly maple wood is a reference room. It has an Eiffel Tower, water tower, silo look to it.Thats because the wood in there came from an old mine shaft, polished, and built into the library. Michael Graves said the design can be whatever you want it to be and it’s different for each person. The outside of the library was just as wonderful as the inside. It had much color and shapes as it did in the inside. The outside was made of bricks, granite and other manmade items. It is your imagination that makes this library an amazing work of art.
