Facts

  • The museum is centered around a central atrium stretching from the ground floor to the skylight in the ceiling, with a ramp spiraling around the atrium.
  • One of the most famous works of Frank Lloyd Wright who is, in turn, perhaps the most famous architect of the Modernist movement.
  • According to the architect's original plan (and it is still the suggested route), a visitor would ride up an elevator to the top of the ramp and then descend back to the lobby as the viewer passes the exhibits on the ramp.
  • The width of the spiral ramp is 3 metres (9.8 feet).
