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
