From glass mansions to wood-and-steel ski chalets to sprawling modern ranches, Aspen is home to some of the world’s finest architecture. But behind the glitz and glamour lies a storied history, which set this mountain town on a uniquely innovative and modern path. So we paid a visit to learn the story—through the design lens—and along the way, tasted, tried, and toured to bring you the best modern projects in Aspen, profiles of the key players, and even a map so you can plan your next adventure. But it’s too much to cram here, so we invite you to download our 20-page guide below along with our custom city map, packed with curated design-centric spots from food to architecture and shops!
This 20-page download contains a story on the design history of Aspen, architect profiles, and a custom-curated city guide.
This PDF contains just the two-page city map and guide to Aspen. We tasted, tried, and toured recommendations from architects and designers to whittle down a design-centric list.
