RMNP Building Has Frank Lloyd Roots

Beaver_Meadows_Visitor_Center_2This week marks the 100th birthday of Rocky Mountain National Park! To celebrate, Modern In Denver is taking a look at the built environment inside the park, specifically the RMNP Administration Building, also known as the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center. It was designed by Taliesin Associated Architects, an architectural firm founded by Frank Lloyd Wright to carry on his architectural vision after his death.

According to the park, “Nature was Wright’s most inspirational force. His respect for nature was expressed in abstract designs that were harmonious with the landscape.”

Because of the building’s connection to Frank Lloyd Wright, the building is listed on the National Historic Register. It was completed in 1967.
