Denver is experiencing an unprecedented construction boom, but developers are putting profit before vision and civic pride, says the city’s renowned architect Jeff Sheppard. (Image via Wikipedia)

It’s a big deal when Denver’s top architect publishes an essay that says this city fails in downtown design. That we are building one secular house after another. That we are missing out on the opportunity to become a national leader and ruin the urban landscape by putting profit above civic pride.

Jeff Sheppard said all of that […] in a guest editorial at the Denver Post last Sunday. And we’d be wise to hear him and do what he suggests: stop right now. –

Sheppard’s opinion piece “Denver is a great city so why the bad buildings?” see the Denver Post here.
