August 21, 2009


For Spy Vibers interested in architecture and Frank Lloyd Wright, a reminder that the Guggenheim exhibit ends on August 23rd. The image below, and the interior of Roux Library on the museum's site reminds me a lot of Ken Adam and his use of contrasting spherical ceilings and triangular, sloping walls in his James Bond and Dr. Strangelove sets (influenced by his work on bomb shelters early on). From the Guggenheim: Fifty years after the realization of Frank Lloyd Wright’s renowned design, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum celebrates the golden anniversary of its landmark building with the exhibition Frank Lloyd Wright: From Within Outward, co-organized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. On view from May 15 through August 23, 2009, the 50th anniversary exhibition brings together sixty-four projects designed by one of the most influential architects of the 20th century, including privately commissioned residences, civic and government buildings, religious and performance spaces, as well as unrealized urban mega-structures. Presented on the spiral ramps of Wright's museum through a range of mediums -including more than 200 original Frank Lloyd Wright drawings, many of which are on view to the public for the first time, as well as newly commissioned models and digital animations -Frank Lloyd Wright: From Within Outward illuminates Wright’s pioneering concepts of space and reveals the architect's continuing relevance to contemporary design.
