Architect Without Limits :: Frank Lloyd Wright

If you happen to find yourself in New York City, the Guggenheim Museum is celebrating its 50th anniversary. In commemoration of this event, the Guggenheim is featuring an exhibit on Frank Lloyd Wright, "Frank Lloyd Wright: From Within Outward," which opened Friday, May 15, 2009, and will run through August 23rd.

From the New York Times, Nicolai Ouroussoff:

"The show offers no new insight into his life’s work. Nor is there any real sense of what makes him so controversial. It’s a chaste show, as if the Guggenheim, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary, was determined to make Wright fit for civilized company.

The advantage of this low-key approach is that it puts the emphasis back where it belongs: on the work. There are more than 200 drawings, many never exhibited publicly before. More than a dozen scale models, some commissioned for the show, give a strong sense of the lucidity of his designs and the intimate relationship between building and landscape that was such a central theme of his art.
