Sculptured House of Genesee
A beautiful rendering of the Sculptured House of Genesee, or the “Flying Saucer House”
as it is referred to by passerby on I-70.
Designed 1963 by Charles Deaton, it was the focal point of Woody Allen’s futurist comedy Sleeper from 1973. It was never quite finished until Denver’s John Huggins completed it and added the Deaton-designed addition in 2003.

Denver Firestation #12
Many old Denver-area firestations are being replaced these days, and sometimes the
modernist designs are underappreciated.
Denver Firestation #12 on Federal was designed 1967 by Austin Siegfried and is
one of the most unique local modernist firestation designs.
I don’t really know if it is considered more Expressionist or Formalist. What do you think?
I’d like to hear.

This rustic modern home in Boulder was built in 1966.
I believe this home is part of the Expressionist movement in architecture.
