Details concerning function requirements, client tastes, and materials are included throughout, and the guide serves as an educational resource about design and the building of our great city.

By singling out examples of well-designed buildings and problematic ones, the guide strives to help people see what is good, and sometimes not so good. It shows architecture in a larger context, and offers a better understanding of how individual structures combine to create a different or total environment. This book is not only a guide for the neophyte but also a source for the architecturally aware who are seeking to expand their knowledge. This is THE book if you want to discover, look at, and appreciate the influence of architecture and design in Denver!
