A Retrospective of Guggenheims

There are now enough Guggenheims, real or imagined, for a full-scale retrospective. And now there will actually be one: Architecture of the Guggenheim, Aug. 25 to Nov. 12 at the Federal Art and Exhibition Hall in Bonn, Germany, will display “architectural models and plans of 23 projects and completions [that] illustrate the radical development of international museum architecture and exhibition design as reflected in the Guggenheim’s own pioneering past and present.”
The all-star line-up of architects includes: Asymptote, Shigeru Ban, Coop Himmelb(l)au, Frank Gehry, Richard Gluckman, Vittorio Gregotti, Charles Gwathmey, Zaha Hadid, Hans Hollein, Arata Isozaki, Rem Koolhaas, Enrique Norten and Jean Nouvel.
Oh yes, and Frank Lloyd Wright.
So many projects, so little built.
