The BAW Totem

At the BAW office in Denver, Colorado one of the central architectural features is a colonnade of white columns of considerable mass, the first of which has been affectionately dubbed the Totem. While neither Doric, Ionic nor Corinthian in style, the column nonetheless possesses a sense of classical gravitas that is echoed in BAW’s timeless architecture.

The Totem transcended its purely functional weight-bearing architectural role to become something of a cherished office object once visiting clients were invited to sign it. Their indelible signatures on the Totem express the longstanding relationships that BAW cultivates and nurtures over time. The Totem thus serves as an emblem of a far-flung group, one that shares the same values and business ethic.
