No structure is more beautiful to visit than the Guggenheim Museum in NYC. Solomon and Rebay Guggenheim commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to design the permanent structure to house the ‘Museum of Non-Objective Painting’. It took over 16 years, and several construction delays to complete the structure. In 1959, the museum opened to a waiting public, only six months after Frank Lloyd Wright’s death. “From the beginning, the relationship between the breathtaking architecture of the building and the art it was built to display inspired controversy and debate. One critic wrote that the museum “has turned out to be the most beautiful building in America . . . never for a minute dominating the pictures being shown,” while another insisted that the structure was “less a museum than it is a monument to Frank Lloyd Wright.” More History
My family and I were amazed how the interior views changed as we walked up the various floors. It was also interesting how the preferred artwork viewing is to walk UP, not from the top Down. The artwork was beautifully tucked into lit corners on each floor in open areas that were unusually intimate.
