    It's part of the Denver Art Museum in Denver, Colorado. It's famous for it's collection of American Indian art. This is the Frederic C. Hamilton building.

    Here's the architect (Daniel Libeskind):

    Thats correct. The DAM received a Presidential Award for Excellence from the American Institute of Steel Construction - Innovative Design in Engineering and Architecture with Structural Steel awards program in 2007.

    It was formed in 1990 and opened its first permanent galleries in 1993. It has over 12000 pieces of art ranging from the 16th C to the present.
