Have you ever wondered how the Guggenheim Museum in New York looks like under its skin of white paint? Here’s the answer, that’s how the Guggenheim Museum looks like naked. The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York is one of the most iconic buildings in the world. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the cylindrical building that is wider at the top than at the bottom is a landmark work of 20th-century architecture. Built in 1959, the building underwent a significant exterior restoration from 2005 to 2008. The paint of the original surface was removed, cracks due to seasonal temperature fluctuations were repaired, and systems were modernized.
