the guggenheim

the outside, from across the street.  designed by frank lloyd wright.  

inside the center of the rotunda, looking up towards the skylight

inside the rotunda, looking across the atrium, art and museum goers on the other side.

while the art in the museum wasn't my favorite type of stuff, the guggenheim itself is easily the coolest museum i've ever been to.  when I arrived there, I watched a 27 minute film about the history of the museum and its constantly changing exhibits.  after that, I took the elevator to the top of the museum and proceeded to look at the current work on display while walking down the 7 story spiral ramp.  while the frank lloyd wright design was initially controversial, it has proven itself as a lasting icon of modern architecture.
