A tourist in New York City with photo camera. The Guggenheim Museum. People, spectators

Una de las imágenes  más conocidas de Nueva York es el Museo Guggenheim, próximo al Met.
Su arquitectura le diferencia de su entorno y se ha convertido en icono del siglo XX.
La distribución en espiral como una escalera ascendente marcó, y marca, un concepto de museo, de sus salas, abierto. El espectador, a la vista de otros muchos espectadores, llega a ser parte propia de la visita al museo.

In June 1943, Frank Lloyd Wright received a letter from Hilla Rebay, the art advisor to Solomon R. Guggenheim, asking the architect to design a new building to house Guggenheim's four-year-old Museum of Non-Objective Painting. The project evolved into a complex struggle pitting the architect against his clients, city officials, the art world, and public opinion. Both Guggenheim and Wright would die before the building's 1959 completion. The resultant achievement, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, testifies not only to Wright's architectural genius, but to the adventurous spirit that characterized its founders.
