Photos: Why the greater Civic Center area is one of Denver's architectural treasures

Thousands of professionals in the fields of architecture, planning, design and related occupations, along with many vendors, are meeting in Denver June 20-22 for the American Institute of Architects' annual convention, this year titled "Building Leaders." In honor of the event, Westword art critic Michael Paglia gave over his column to a walk through Denver's treasure chest -- the greater Civic Center area.

Read that column, "Why Civic Center Park is a cherished urban treasure," and then read Paglia's list of ten other fantastic buildings elsewhere downtown. But first, here are photos by Westword photographer Trevor Andersen of the greater Civic Center area.
