Contemplating the void: JDS

During 2009 the Guggenheim Museum celebrated its 50th anniversary. And now, the museum commissioned nearly 200 artists, architects and designers to imagine their dream interventions on the most significative space of Frank Lloyd Wright’s building, the central void. “Contemplating the void” will be on exhibit at the Museum from Feb 12th until Apr 28th. We are going to present you some of the interventions proposed by the architects, starting with “Experience the void” by danish practice JDS. JDS/Julien De Smedt Architects proposal is architecture turned into enjoyment and participation. Instead of contemplating the void we propose to experience it by letting a trampoline net spiral down the rotunda space.  The experience plays with Wright’s original scenography for the Guggenheim: to visit the exhibition downwards.
