Wright in the Bayou?

As the Southeastern Architectural Archive begins its advance planning for a new exhibition, The Wright Stuff: Frank Lloyd Wright's Influence in New Orleans, we came across Saunders Architecture's Guggenheim fantasia (image above). Since the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is celebrating its 50th Anniversary, on February 12th it launched its own self-focused exhibition, Contemplating the Void: Interventions in the Guggenheim Museum. You can read Roberta Smith's NY Times review here.

Guggenheim Museum's online exhibition. BTW, I've mentioned Wright's preference for Louisiana cypress in an earlier post. And for redwoods too?
