One of the greatest buildings on Earth, New York's Guggenheim Museum opened in 1959 as a mutilated version of Wright's original vision--parts of his wonderful spaces were turned into offices and storage, and much of the natural light was blocked off. Architect Sir Richard Rogers delves into the planning disputes, money problems, and personality clashes that plagued the museum during its inception, as well as the recent restoration to its intended glory. Wright's own correspondence, read by Claire Bloom and F. Murray Abraham, vividly reconstructs the 17-year drama that led to the Guggenheim's birth.
