Each year, I give a number of 2-hour “City Transformed” walking tours of different parts of Downtown Denver that are fundraisers for the Denver Architectural Foundation. I serve on the Board of Directors of the DAF and the money we raise through these walking tours helps us put on Doors Open Denver and a variety of other programs and events for the public.
The focus of my walking tours, as the “City Transformed” title suggests, is on how the urban fabric of Denver—its streets, blocks, buildings, and public spaces—were formed and subsequently transformed over the decades by various physical, economic, cultural, and technological forces. Cities—and downtowns in particular—are dynamic places, and no where else is that better exemplified than in Downtown Denver. The tours cover a mix of architecture, urban design, city planning, and Denver history while taking a pleasant stroll through a part of downtown.
Tickets are $20 for Denver Architectural Foundation members and $25 for non-members and all proceeds benefit the Denver Architectural Foundation. Each tour is capped at 20 people maximum, so REGISTER TODAY!!
