Mary Voelz Chandler knows her structures. An art and design critic for the Rocky Mountain News until it folded in 2009, Chandler now works directly in the building field, as a communications specialist with G.H. Phipps Construction. She shared her knowledge in 2001's Guide to Denver Architecture; now she's back with a new and improved version that covers fresh architectural developments of the last decade as well as long-gone structures of the past.

Chandler is a master at surveying and assessing the changing Denver skyline. In advance of her speaking engagement at Tattered Cover LoDo tonight, we spoke with her about the city's booming development and the architectural marvels of Denver's past that have been lost to demolition.
