The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Architect: Frank Lloyd Wright
"The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the collection it houses are a memorial to my uncle, Solomon R. Guggenheim, industrialist, philanthropist and patron of the arts.
More than sixteen years ago he commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to design an original building for the display of the growing collection of contemporary art which he had bequeathed to the public. In creating the building this inspired American architect again demonstrated his genius. In composition, in beauty and in majesty, the building will long live among the architectural treasures of man.
This book is about that building. In it are illuminating statements by a man whose architectural genius knew no bounds. He struggled for the right to create as he saw fit, and this struggle has become legendary."
