Guggenheim Lets Architects Experiment With Its Insides

New, 3 comments

For an exhibition opening in February called Contemplating the Void, the Guggenheim asked over 200 artists, architects and designers to "imagine their dream interventions" in the museum's spiral space. Shocker: The results are kind of wacky! BLDG BLOG has singled out some favorites, including the early leader for most mind-melting, Koren architect Minsuk Cho's Art Trap. Seen first in the gallery above (more renderings here), the concept is to stretch a membrane across the space, adding cutouts and protrusions that allow museum visitors to dangle out over Frank Lloyd Wright's rotunda. Er, look out below?
