- Architecture&Criticism -
The Gravity Force is always shown in the face of architecture through the weight of materials a building is constructed with. But there are singular buildings as Gughemggeim Museum of New York, designed and constructed by F.Ll.Wright in 1.959, where the gravity is not only something static and motionless, but something as well dinamic and able to generate the movement of visitors inside the building.
When somebody enters inside the Gughemggeim contemplates the Hall, a magnificent centralized space covered with a glass dome that illuminates the whole museum with light from above. Without a doubt, this is the only sign of classical architecture that can be found in the Gughemggeim. Another reason to consider the building as a master piece: the dome conects it directly with architecture history. When the visitor is in the Hall, he has to take the elevator to go up to the upper floor. From this point is the gravity which takes the people and move them by inertia through the spiral ramp until the exhibitions halls and finally to the bottom floor. The gravity force takes visitors throughout the visit, but the architecture stops it for a gentle descent for the people that arrive to the Hall safely, just in the point where gravity started to be their tourist guide.
