TOPIC 04: Museums (part 1)
The Guggenheim is central to the late work of Frank Lloyd Wright, to mid-century Modernism, and to New York City’s architecture. Review your reading and the SmartHistory video, in which one of the hosts asks:
Should a museum be a neutral container? Should paintings be hung in simple white boxes, or should the architectural design contribute to the aesthetic experience?
In your post, explain if in this special functional building type, the art museum, the architecture should have a combative or complementary relationship to its contents.
Your response comments on at least two colleagues’ posts due by the following Thursday.
