Ongoing: Frank Lloyd Wright's Usonian House & Pavillion
This exhibit is about two Frank Lloyd Wright-designed buildings which were constructed on the site where the Guggenheim now stands. The buildings included a temporary pavilion made of glass, fiberboard, and pipe columns & a 1,700-square-foot, fully furnished, two-bedroom, model Usonian house representing Wright’s organic solution for modest, middle-class dwellings.
Two generations of Thannhausers, who opened the Modern Gallerie in Munich in 1909, and a second in 1917 in Lucerne, promoted the arts in a manner comparable to Guggenheim. Due to the Nazi purge of 'degenerate art' they closed in 1937 and left for Paris, eventually settling in NYC.
