Video: Architecture Tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum was the last major project designed and built by Frank Lloyd Wright between 1943 until it opened to the public in 1959, six months after his death, making it one of his longest works in creation along with one of his most popular projects. Completely contrasting the strict Manhattan city grid, the organic curves of the museum are a familiar landmark for both art lovers, visitors, and pedestrians alike.

The Guggenheim Museum has created this video along with an interactive time line documenting the design and construction of this monumental building. Keeping Faith with an Idea: A Time Line of the Guggenheim Museum, covers the years of 1943-59 and includes stories, audio, and video.
