The Denver International Airport passenger terminal was inspired by the nearby Rocky Mountains. The roof structure, supported by 28 masts reaching heights of up to 150 feet, can safely shift up to 24 inches at its peak point during high-wind storms. The fabric roof provides considerable daylighting, requiring less artificial light. At night the translucent roof emits a soft glow.
