About the Guggenheim Rotunda
Since its opening in 1959, the Guggenheim Museum has served as an inspiration for invention, challenging artists and architects to react to its eccentric, organic design. The central void of the spiraling Rotunda has elicited many unique and innovative responses over the years, which have been manifested in both site-specific solo shows and memorable exhibition designs.
