Fifty years after it was completed, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum celebrates its anniversary with an exhibition that brings together 64 projects including privately commissioned residences, civic and government buildings, and religious and performance spaces, as well as unrealized urban mega-structures. Including more than 200 original Frank Lloyd Wright drawings, many of which are on view to the public for the first time, as well as newly commissioned models and digital animations (including six analytical models by Situ Studio) this exhibition illuminates Wright’s pioneering concepts of space and reveals the architect’s continuing relevance to contemporary design.
