Abstract: The design of Denver's Landside Terminal Complex for the new Denver International Airport, called for some far reaching vision coupled with imaginative building technologies. Because of its location, a dash of western spirit of adventure was added. The roof, made of the latest achievements of high technology--glass fiber,polymer coatings, high strength steel, machined stainless steel, and aluminum connections-- together with its glistening white undulations, mimicking the snow capped Rocky mountains to teh west, will become that certain symbol, much like the Eiffel Tower, that identifies Denver as an international port of entry.
