Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art
Jim Olson, principal architect at Olson Kundig, opted for an eye-catching golden-colored terracotta exterior at Denver’s Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Arts. The museum, which is aptly located in the city’s Golden Triangle Creative District, features NBK’s terracotta, glazed vertical baguettes in an array of yellows that complement the colorful art housed inside. Meanwhile vitrines, which are mounted to the façade, spotlight decorative objects, and literally bring the art to the street.
