21004 Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is a LEGO Architecture set that was released in 2009. The set includes a model of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York and a booklet with information about the building's design and history and the building instructions. The model was designed by Chicago architect Adam Reed Tucker.

Description[edit]

This set is a miniature model of the Guggenheim Museum, located in Manhattan in New York City. It contains 208 pieces and no minifigures, like all sets of the Architecture line. The pieces are common LEGO System bricks and are mainly white and tan, with a black stand which reads "Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum".

Background[edit]

Wright was a man of strong opinions, not known to be easily persuaded when his mind was set. However, this time he agreed to take on the task, even if he initially had been opposed to the idea of creating the museum in New York, a city he characterized as already overbuilt and too populated.

From when he was hired by Solomon in 1943, Wright spent 16 years, drawing 700 sketches and six sets of working plans for The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, better known simply as The Guggenheim. Overlooking Central Park, located on the corners of 5th Avenue and 89th street. The Guggenheim rises as an expanding light-beige helix, implementing lines from nature as well as strict geometrical shapes. As one of the first users of Gunite (sprayed concrete), Wright was able to create the smooth, seamless curves. As he died the 9th of April 1959, Wright himself did not live to see the grand opening of his last masterpiece, it opened October 21 the same year. Solomon had by this time been gone nearly 10 years. Wright himself got his inspiration from the past, through his impressions of nature.
