Guggenheim Museum
The Guggenheim Museum is located across from Central Park in New York City. It was founded in 1939 as the Museum of Non-objective Art. Its permanent collection includes many modern works.
 
In 1939, the museum commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) to design the perfect space in which to view an art collection. Building the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum occupied Wright until its opening in 1959.
 
As a child in Wisconsin, Wright spent a lot of time playing with geometric blocks. He believed that this early play shaped much of his approach to design.
 
Wright studied at the University of Wisconsin, but did not stay to get a degree. Instead, he learned his craft by apprenticing to a builder and working under other architects. In 1901, he opened his own office.
 
Wright practiced “organic architecture,” designing structures that evolve naturally from their surroundings. During a 72-year career, he produced over 800 designs; about 400 of them were constructed.
 
The Guggenheim is probably Wright’s most well-known masterpiece. The building coils around a space topped by a glass dome. The plan allows visitors to view art exhibits as they slowly walk along a spiral ramp.
