contemplating the void: interventions in the guggenheim museum solomon r. guggenheim museum, new york february 12th to april 28th, 2010 architecture turned into enjoyment and participation. instead of contemplating the void of the guggenheim museum‘s central space, JDS architects have proposed an experience which sees a trampoline net spiraling down the institution’s rotunda. this idea plays on frank lloyd wright’s original scenography for the guggenheim in which he envisioned patrons visiting the exhibition from the top, downwards.
