Frank Lloyd Wright famously designed the controversial Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City 50 years ago, and in celebration of the Wisconsin-born designer some of his works will be displayed in an upcoming exhibition at the Guggenheim museum''s location in Bilbao, Spain.
Running through February, the exhibition will display 63 of the late designer''s projects including private homes, civic and government buildings, religious venues, performance spaces and a few unrealized designs.
The title of the program is From Within Outward, a phrase which effectively describes Wright''s architectural style.
"The building is no longer a block of building material dealt with, artistically, from the outside," writes Wright as quoted from Artdaily.org. "The room within is the great fact about building - the room to be expressed in the exterior as space enclosed."
The museum will present an assortment of blueprints, photographs and 3d models representing the various stages of Wrights career, as well as 3d rendered graphics that will allow viewers a more intimate look at nine of his most personal projects including one of his homes and several unbuilt structures.
Academy of Art University, founded in 1929 by artists for artists, is the nation's largest accredited, private art and design university with over 18,000 students.
