The Solomon R.Guggenheim Museum is amnog the most famous buildings in the world, and widely acknowleged as the crowning achievement of architect Frank Lloyd Wright's late career. The spectacular winding structure, rising unexpectedly from the regular grid of New York City's streets, is emlamatic of Wright's unique vision of an organic architecture.
This book celebrates the Guggenheim from its inception to the present.
In a highly informative essay, Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer, Vice President and Director of the Frank Loyd Wright Archives, traces an odyssey that began in 1943 with letter imploring Wright to build "a temple of the spirit" for a small museum of non-objective paintings. The project endured delays and upsets for sicteen years before construction was completed in 1992, the architect's original vision has now truly been fulfilled. This beautiful volume also includes fascinating photographs taken during the museum's construction, a portfolio of photographs interpreting Wright's structure as work of art, and images of exhibition installations within the newly restored buildnig.
