The cutting lines and sweeping circles of New York’s Guggenheim Museum give us one of Frank Lloyd Wright‘s architectural masterpieces of the 20th Century.  If you find yourself in New York, even for just a brief visit, go.

There were 15 years of discussions on the design of this jewel, and sadly Mr. Wright was not alive to attend the opening in 1959.  However his ability and deftness with lines and space gives us a museum that is as much about the structure itself as it is viewing the collection inside.

Although there is an ‘almost free’ entry on Saturday afternoons when it is donate-what-you-wish, we highly recommend visiting the museum on a sunny morning. On these magical New York days, when the light is crisp and the air pure, one feel to the fullest how the design was meant to be experienced.  The natural illumination filtering through the skylights and the geometric shadows it creates.  Wander around the exterior to the secret corners on every floor, and the stop to relish the varied views from every angle,

Upon entering, take the elevator directly to the top floor and wind your way down through the spiral path of galleries.
