This year world renowned architect I.M. Pei turned 100, and his last Denver design, the 16th Street Mall, turned 35. The Mall has been called “public art of the highest international quality” and likened to a Swiss watch due to its intricate interconnected design. The 16th Street Mall was ambitious and visionary, intended to revitalize Denver’s most important street with a world class design to bring pedestrians, residents, commuters, shoppers and workers together in a place that is unmistakably western, unmistakable Denver, and unmistakably memorable.

In March of 2017, the City of Denver and RTD announced a new planning process for the Mall, evaluating what changes might be necessary or desirable, and whether the Mall as we know it and as Pei intended, will last beyond a generation.

Join a panel of speakers to understand the intricate design elements of the Mall, from its carpet-runner of granite pavers, its distinctive twinkle lights to its carefully cultivated trees, and hear debate and discussion about its future as the spine of downtown Denver.
