Solomon Guggenheim Museum

Latitude: 40°46'58.90"N
Longitude: 73°57'31.92"W

This remarkable building defines form over function. There is something very calm about it. Though Wright's "Temple of Contemplation" (my term) was commissioned as a museum, it does not work as an art gallery (the walls are not flat and there is not enough natural light). The circle is the obvious design paradigm here.
