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?
