Facts, informations and history of Guggenheim Museum

Initially, other locations of the structure were considered, among others 36th Street, 54th Street, Park Avenue or the Riverdale section of the Bronx, but in the end the Museum was built between 88th and 89th Street.

The Guggenheim Museum is an attempt by Wright to restore the plasticity of organic forms in architecture.

The building has the shape of an inverted Babylonian pyramid or a diaphragm or a spiral.

Visitors to the gallery are first transported by elevators to the top floor, and then watching the exhibits go down the gentle slope.

The building is a combination of different shapes, triangles, ovals, arcs, circles and squares. We find here oval columns, repeating shapes of fountains and stairs, and round and spiral patterns on the floors.

Some people, mostly artists, criticize Wright for his museum, whose shape outside can overcome art inside, and for combining the static regularity of geometry with plasticity of nature.

In the museum there is a huge collection of paintings, among others such masters as Picasso, Miro, Klee and Kandisky. Due to the constantly expanding collections, in 1992 the second, named Guggenheim Solo Muzeum, was opened.

In 1986, the building was awarded by the American Institute of Architects.

projekt dla niektorych kontrowersyjny ..dla mnie niezwykle jak na tamte czasy nowatorski. Z silna piramidalna dominanta, tworzaca spojna calosc z reszta kubatury. Kolor- strzal w 10-tke. Muzeum idealnie wtopione w otaczajaca przestrzen. ...czyli mnie sie podobie

od przegranych procesów z inwestorami za nie funkcjonalnośc budynków F L Wright'a uratowała smierc(chodzi o ten projekt powieś na scianach po łuku obrazy...i dom nad wodospadem reumatyzm mieszkańców...) mimo to FLW dla mnie jest postacią nowatorską wśród architektów

odp.dla PABLOTKA - projekt był bardzo przemyślany........chociaż na pierwszy rzut oka na to nie wygląda.jego organiczna forma współgra z otoczeniem jednocześnie się od niego odcinając.jest wystarczająco niski zatem nie dominuje, jest inny zatem zwraca uwagę, znajduje się obok parku więc współgra(jakby wyglądajo otoczenie z dużą ilością szklano-żelaznych budynków?),poza tym ciekawy jest środek-sam cię prowadzi(i nie trzeba wchodzić pod górę...co ułatwia życie i pozwala skoncentrować się na sztuce)pzdrw
