Guggenheim Museum Model Kit by Frank Lloyd Wright
The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is one of Wright’s most iconic projects. It has now become a staple of New York City architecture for its unusual spiral shape. However, this unique design has made it a controversial museum. Critics have claimed that the new Guggenheim Museum prioritizes architecture over art, as the artwork is not placed on flat, even flat walls. Instead, visitors would experience the art as they ascend the massive ramp system. Although it was not equally appreciated by all, many visitors today appreciate the innovative design of the museum.

Usonian House by Frank Lloyd Wright Scale Model Kit
Usonian house was not just any Wright house. It was a prototype of affordable American housing. The design of Usonian houses represents many of the qualities that define Wright’s architecture: horizontality, long horizontal roof planes, ornamentation inspired by natural forms, efficient use of living spaces, and other ideas that would become even more defined later. in Wright’s life.
There were around 60 Usonian homes built, all for middle-income families who were perfect clients to test Wright’s ideas. Many of these houses were built on difficult-to-use sites and required special variations of the Usonian architectural type. Each of these projects helped define the “rules” of Wright’s architectural style.
