Frank Lloyd Wright
location New York, New York
function museum
contributed by MVar

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is located in a key site in front of Central Park, an oasis of tranquility in the big city. Wright took his inspiration from nature and organic forms. But the main innovation in his design was the new concept of 'circulation'. Visitors have to rise to the top of the building via an elevator, and then walk downward through the galleries on a continuous helical spiral ramp. The building was finished six month after Wright's death, it being his last major work. It is a masterpiece of Modern Architecture still now, even though it was finished in 1959.

Try and time your visit to the middle of an exhibition. When I visited in 1997, they were between exhibitions and the atrium was full of scaffolding which took the edge off things. Even so, still the work of an architectural genius!
