The Guggenheim Museum is one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural masterpieces of the 20th Century. Something that everyone who has the opportunity to, should experience. 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.
At the J. Paul Getty Museum there is a fine collection of European paintings, drawings, sculpture, illuminated manuscripts, decorative arts, European and American photographs aside rotating special exhibits. However, they all take a bit of a backseat to the wonderfulPlatinum LEED certified, modernist complex that highlights both nature and culture. Designed by Natural light architect Richard Meier the “Getty” is a as much a park as it is museum. A haven in the sprawling smog that is Los Angeles.
