“In “Frank Lloyd Wright: From Within Outward,” an exhibition currently on view at the Guggenheim Museum, the models of Wright’s designs are attracting as much attention as the exhibition itself. This and five other models in the exhibition were designed and made by Situ Studio. The Guggenheim curators chose Situ because they were determined not to go the usual architectural-model route and they even put a clause in Situ’s contract forbidding the use of those fuzzy little hobby-shop trees.”
JDS Architects thought that this trampoline net spiral—which would allow people to bounce from the top floor to the bottom of the Guggenheim Museum rotunda—could be the funniest thing ever.
Unfortunately—or fortunately for the people who may have broken their necks—it is just a concept, part of the “Contemplating the Void: Interventions in the Guggenheim Museum” exhibition. The exhibition explores different formulas to fill the open space inside the famous Frank Lloyd Wright’s building.
Built in Los Angeles, California, the Ennis House is one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s largest example of “textile block” design. The concept for the residence is based on the design of Mayan Temples. This is reflected in the relief patterns on the concrete facade and the shape and layout of the building.
