This is an art museum in the USA, created by philanthropist and collector Solomon Guggenheim, located in Manhattan within the museum mile. One of the oldest and most visited collections of contemporary art in the world
creation of the Guggenheim Foundation
Guggenheim has created a special fund to support contemporary art. An exhibition space was required for the collection of paintings. So it was decided to build a museum.
The baroness, who manages the patron's collection, suggested architect Frank Wright to create an unusual building for storing unique treasures.
architect Frank Wright
To create huge, but "weightless" reinforced concrete structures, engineers had to use many new, incredible inventions
The architect decided that the works of art would be organically complemented by the mobility and variability of the building in the form of a spiral.
Both the Guggenheim and the architect Wright did not live up to this time.
Thanks to the project F. Wright, the museum immediately caused a furore. Some artists refused to exhibit there, as the building seemed very strange to them.
Today it is difficult to imagine a more popular place to showcase works of modern art.

In addition to the collections of Solomon Guggenheim, there are unique collections of his niece Peggy, K. Dreyer, D. Lanza di Bumo, K. Nirendorff, D. Tannhauser
three masterpieces from the collection
Strangely twisted sheets of weather-resistant steel, creating bizarre corridors, express the author's attitude to the variability of time limits.
