For the building’s 50th anniversary, the Guggenheim invited scores of artists, architects, and designers to leave practicality or even reality behind in conjuring their proposals for the space. In this exhibition of ideal projects, certain themes emerge, including the return to nature in its primordial state, the desire to climb the building, the interplay of light and space, the interest in diaphanous effects as a counterpoint to the concrete structure, and the impact of sound on the environment. Conceived as both a commemoration and a self-reflexive folly, Contemplating the Void confirms how truly catalytic the architecture of the Guggenheim can be. [From https://www.guggenheim.org/exhibition/contemplating-the-void]

Our proposal grows organically to occupy this void by fragmentation; bifurcations in growth create very loose zones to be activated by visitors, light, shadow, and reflection.

We were excited to sell one of our drawings for benefit at the event's auction!
