Guggenheim Extension Story by Oiio Architecture Office via Dezeen

Oiio Architecture Office of New York and Athens has come up with a concept to extend Frank’s Lloyd Wright’s famous Guggenheim Museum in New York by extending its spiralling form up into the sky.

“What if we decided we needed a little more of Guggenheim?” question the architects, whose plans show a structure with almost three times as many floors as the iconic museum that was designed by Wright during the 1940s.

The tapered extension would continue the path of the Guggenheim’s ramped rotunda gallery through an additional thirteen floors, finishing with a complete circular floor on the uppermost level. The domed glass roof would be removed from its current position and reconstructed over the new roof.
