This weekend I ventured out to the famous and very fabulous Solomon Guggenheim Museum in NYC. They have several museums throughout the world and thought it was worth taking a look. Known for its modern art, the museum attracts architecture and art nerds alike because of its unique construction.
Built in a reverse pyramid-like style on the outside, the inside is a gradual and winding pathway to the top. This exclusive format allows for amazing views, of art, people, light, and structure throughout the entire building. The walls may be lined with art, but the building is a piece of art in itself.
Designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1956, the construction of the building was actually petitioned against by artists and politicians. Now that it’s a historical landmark and regular tourist NYC hot spot, it’s not going anywhere!
Has anyone else visited the Guggenheim? What’s your favorite art museum? Let me know in the comments! 🙂
