famous nyc building

You notice Frank Lloyd Wright’s name is not on the front of this Lego package. Would the old codger ever be throwing a tantrum if he saw his museum turned into a child’s toy, especially one that bears little resemblance to the actual building! To me, it looks like an urban hotel.

At the Guggenheim this month, they are partying up the 50th anniversary of the museum’s completion. It’s only fitting that MOMA is displaying a bit of Frank Lloyd Wright’s genius with a model of Falling Water in the ongoing Architecture and Landscape show (up until mid-January 2010).

One of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most famous buildings, the Guggenheim Museum, is on upper Fifth Avenue. In preparation for its 50th anniversary this year, numerous cracks in the cement were patched and some structural work was performed. The building looks great, but it will always be controversial; the spiral that defines the interior is an undeniably tricky venue for art.
