"To house Solomon Guggenheim's collection of modern art, Frank Lloyd Wright envisioned a powerful spatial experience, one that would revolutionize the relationship between people and art. The result, the iconic Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, utilized stunning innovation in form and Wright's concept of organic architecture to radically transform the museum experience. It has often been said that the greatest work in the collection of the Guggenheim Museum is the building itself. What makes the Guggenheim an architectural and cultural icon? How did Wright conceive of and develop his ideas for the building's coiling ramp and magnificent rotunda? And how does it continue to challenge our collective understanding of art museums even into the 21st century? Neil Levine, world-renowned architectural historian and professor at Harvard University takes us on an engaging and personal tour of the building and its history."--Container.

Loaded with interesting facts but the narrator is very dull. This film could have used a better means to convey the information presented.

The history of the building, and of the intent/plan vs the actual construction, is very interesting and would definitely rate an above-average rating. The narrator is no doubt quite learned but I didn't care for his manner, and he's on-camera quite a bit so that dragged down the overall rating.
