Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (1956)

New York, New York
HW #13

As one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most famous structures, the Guggenheim is definitely one of a kind. The circulation encircles the perimeter of the interior and creates an open, light-filled atrium in the center, allowing for truly dynamic displays of art. When I visited last Christmas for Maurizio Cattelan’s exhibition, all the artwork was hung at the center, with people revolving around it. (second photo) This time, artwork was hung along the curved walls.
