It’s simple and clear: Switch/Replace the Guggenheim Museum in New York with your interpretation of the museum. What? Why? How? Yes. You heard that right. The competition offers a chance to re-create the iconic museum in NYC by the legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright at the same exact site but with an entirely new perspective by the participants. The aim of this competition is to re-design the museum created by the master himself, with a similar intent to break from the prevalent conventionality in designing a museum and gallery space and create an innovative and extraordinary built form.
