Italian architect Gio Ponti was one of the most imaginative and innovative designers of his time. Over the course of his sixty-year career, Ponti was a tireless inventor of numerous concepts and realities, from designs like the spoon to the skyscraper. These diverse and prolific achievements led to Ponti’s hiring in 1965, at the age of seventy-four, to collaborate with Denver-based James Sudler Associates on the design of a new home for the Denver Art Museum, completed in 1971.
