Concrete dancing with light

The new Clyfford Still Museum in Denver by Allied Works…

…uses concrete as structure, finish, and screen.

Natural concrete in mid-tone gray is the perfect background to display art.

The delicate corduroy texture of the walls is subtle enough as an interior finish, but strong enough to catch sun and shadows outside.

A lattice of concrete modulates natural light in the upper level galleries.

The pattern of the ceiling screen seems to imitate the marks and dashes of the art work…

…following its rhythms…

…as if the paintings and concrete are dancing with the light.
