Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

Solomen R.Guggenheim museum is the first permanent museum (rather than converted from a private house) built in USA.
Frank was commissioned to design a building to house the museum of Non-Objective Painting.
The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum was the last major project designed and built by Frank Lloyd Wright between 1943 until it opened to the public in 1959, six months after his death, making it one of his longest works in creation along with one of his most popular projects.
Completely contrasting the strict Manhattan city grid, the organic curves of the museum are a familiar landmark for both art lovers, visitors, and pedestrians alike.


Petronas Towers

Once considered the tallest building in the world from 1998 to 2004.
Completed in 1998, the Petronas Towers are a reflection and homage to the dominant Islamic culture of Malaysia.
To create a uniquely Malaysian design, Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects drew from Islamic culture, Kuala Lumpur’s climate and light, and Malaysian craft and design.
The plan of the towers is generated from two overlapping squares that form an 8-​pointed star, a pattern frequently found in Islamic design called Rub el Hizb.
