contemplating the void: interventions in the guggenheim museum solomon r. guggenheim museum, new york on now april 28th, 2010

instead of dealing directly with the guggenheim museum‘s central ‘void’ some artists, designers and architects have chosen to explore the space between frank lloyd wright’s spiraling ramp. imagined proposals include screens, decals and extensions from the winding levels, emphasizing the circular structure of the museum.
