Boggling Guggenheim

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Gerald Lim

Did you (nearly) stumble over the "G's" in the title whilst reading it aloud? That was the exact feeling that greeted me as I entered the rotunda of the Guggenheim Museum. The scale of the people relative to the building exerts a monumental impression to this futuristic, modernist edifice. The visitors can be found gazing in almost every direction - upwards, downwards and into the building - as they paused momentarily from viewing the artworks to embrace the metaphysical spatiality around them, with a little help from some natural lighting, naturally.

Location: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York
