Guggenheim Museum, 1964

Fifth Ave. and 89th St. Frank Lloyd Wright, architect.

Yes, people once dressed for the theater and museum-going. Click image to see what I mean. Love the old-fashioned baby carriage.

Inside, the museum is stunning; some critics say the structure outshines the collection.

 A tower addition in 1992 gave the museum more space for art, but also had the unfortunate effect of making the museum look like a toilet when approached from certain angles. It is an amusing sight that never fails to make me smile!

  1. It is a great space. The question for me is whether or not it is a good space to display art. I think it's really tough to design spaces that do a good job of displaying art.
