More on Brad Cloepfil

The architect slated to design the new Clyfford Still Museum in Denver gets the Metropolis treatment.

“I think it is changing. The cultural shift of the last ten years that has elevated architecture so high is now becoming more diverse. The culture is becoming more confident about architecture, and demanding more. And I think the next ten years will be really interesting.” - Cloepfil

Canadian Architects well on the Green Path

This ambitious plan, developed by architect Edward Mazria, advocates three major points: 1) that all new buildings and developments be designed to use half the fossil fuel energy they would typically consume; 2) that at a minimum, an equal amount of existing building area be renovated annually to use half the amount of fossil fuel energy currently being consumed; and 3) that the fossil fuel reduction standard for all new buildings be increased to 60% in 2010, 70% in 2015, 80% in 2020, 90% in 2025 and carbon- neutral by 2030. When we discuss the term "carbon-neutral," we are referring to buildings that do not use fossil fuel greenhouse gas-emitting energy to operate.

Clyfford Still Museum - Art Preview in Denver

"I can't get too specific, but it's starting to come together," said architect Brad Cloepfil, who in November 2006 won the commission to design a home for Still's work on Bannock Street next to Daniel Libeskind's Frederic C. Hamilton Building.

"It's the most exciting building I've ever worked on," Cloepfil, of Allied Works Architecture, said recently from his office in New York. "It's a big dynamic time. We haven't pinned down materials, but we're getting ahold of the quality of space the work will inhabit."

Clyfford Still Unveiled: Selections from the Estate opens on Saturday with a gallery talk at 11am by Dean Sobel, Director, Clyfford Still Museum at the DAM HAM Building and will showcase some of Still's work. Denver residents enjoy free admission to the museum this Saturday and Sunday!

The new Still Museum will open in 2010 right next to Dozen's for breakfast or grab a drink across the street from Pint's Pub .
