The view from up top as the taxi drops me for checking in.   So the metal frame is the top arched covering shown in the next picture.
Here is a rendition of the completed arrival point at Denver International Airport of the East Rail Line that will go from Union Station in downtown Denver to DIA. The design is by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.  Completion is slated for late 2015/ early 2016.

Once I looked into the background of the train station/ plaza/ hotel complex that is under construction at Denver airport, I discovered that there had been a lot of trouble with its design.  Check out this cool animation from the Denver Post.   The original design from star Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava had to be modified somewhat after he withdrew from the project.
