In 1992, #ZahaHadid
became the first architect tasked with designing a special exhibition in the Guggenheim rotunda. The bold design for "The Great Utopia: The Russian and Soviet Avant-Garde, 1915-1932," at that point the largest exhibition the Guggenheim had ever mounted, alluded to the Russian avant-garde by incorporating sharp geometric shapes, including angled vitrines and a striking red wall that zigzagged down one of the ramps.
Since opening in 1959, our Frank Lloyd Wright-designed museum has served as inspiration for invention, challenging artists and architects to react to its eccentric, organic design. Follow #Guggenheim60
