Guggenheim Description - Outside, it looks like a giant toasted popover....
Outside, it looks like a giant toasted popover. The diameter at the summit is 123 feet and only 100 feet at the base. Inside a libbon of wall and inclined floor circles upward from the main central court, with pictures hung only on the outside wall. Stand on the ground floor and look up and you see a great expanding bowl rising in soft white spiraling stripes to a glass dome.
