I do have one major criticism of the Graves library from the point of view of urban design--there are simply too many colors. Buildings in multiple shades are a Graves signature, but couldn't he have stuck to the established tones of the Civic Center, using the many shades that lie between gray and buff?

"The Big New Library" is an instant landmark, or, to be exact, two landmarks: Hoyt's old classic and Graves's new one. The complex can already be said to constitute one of the most significant public buildings in the state. For a change, Denver got the project it should have, even if, given the selection process, we probably didn't deserve it.
