Artists fill the Guggenheim's rotunda with ideas 

As the grand finale to its year long 50th Anniversary celebration, the Guggenheim Museum invited more than 200 artists, architects and designers to propose imaginative interventions for the museum’s iconic void. Those ideas form the museum’s current exhibition, Contemplating the Void: Interventions in the Guggenheim Museum, which opened last Friday and runs through 28 April.

Among the works on view are projects from Alice Aycock, FAKE DESIGN (Ai Weiwei), Anish Kapoor, Sarah Morris, Wangechi Mutu, Mike Nelson, Paul Pfeiffer, Doris Salcedo, Lawrence Weiner, and Rachel Whiteread; designers such as Fernando and Humberto Campana, Martí Guixé, Joris Laarman Studio, and Studio Job; and architects such as Álvaro Siza Vieira Arquitecto, BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), Greg Lynn FORM, junya.ishigami+associates, MVRDV, N55, Philippe Rahm, Snøhetta, Studio Daniel Libeskind, Toyo Ito & Associates Architects, and West 8.

As an accompaniment to the exhibition, the museum has launched a comprehensive Web site, where the proposals can be viewed online. To visit go to guggenheim.org
