Completed in 1959, the Guggenheim Museum is a masterwork by the world-renowned architect Frank LLoyd Wright (1867-1959). The fame of Wright's design rests on its unconventional rotunda shape and sloping spiral ramp that curves around the building's interior. This circular conception enables the continuous and unimpeded viewing of art works, either through movement along the ramp, or by looking across the open rotunda at several bays on different levels simultaneously. Another defining architectural feature of the museum is Wright's monumental skylight at the top of the rotunda that allows natural light to flood the exhibition space.
