The Guggenheim Fills the Void

Since it opened in New York City in 1959, Frank Lloyd Wright's Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum has captivated the world--and its imagination. To celebrate the building's 50th anniversary, the museum invited artists, designers, and architects from around the globe to design their dream intervention for the iconic void of the central rotunda.

Submissions came in from today's top designers--including modernists and Dwell favorites like BIG, JDS Architects, Terunobu Fujimori, MVRDV, and others--and range from the void as a forrested swamp to the void as a state fair.

The work is being showcased in the exhibit Contemplating the Void: Interventions in the Guggenheim and is on display from February 12 until April 28, 2010. If you can't make it--or if you're like me and can't wait to see some of the designs--view our slideshow of images from the exhibition.
