Drawings and architectural renderings by Frank Lloyd Wright reveal his pioneering concepts of space. This drawing, made with graphite pencil and colored pencil, illustrates Frank Lloyd Wright's plan for spiraling ramps inside the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Wright wanted visitors to discover artwork gradually as they slowly moved up the ramps.
