Photos from the Guggenheim
Paul and I ostensibly visited the Guggenheim Museum earlier this month for an exhibit on Frank Lloyd Wright.
And sure, we inspected the models and the architect's drawings. But the visit turned more into an inspection of the museum's building with my camera. That's not as unrelated as it sounds, since Wright actually did design the Guggenheim.
The Guggenheim isn't my favorite New York City museum (that honor probably belongs to the American Museum of Natural History), but it is my favorite museum building. The simple design means it's easy to navigate and difficult to miss a display. The continuous spiral ramps and large rotunda make for some sweeping views-- albeit a queasy stomach if you look down from the top.
