architecture turned into enjoyment and participation.

instead of contemplating the void of the guggenheim museum's central space,

JDS architects
have proposed an experience which sees a trampoline net spiraling down

the institution's rotunda. this idea plays on frank lloyd wright's original scenography

for the guggenheim in which he envisioned patrons visiting the exhibition from the top,

downwards.





looking up at the spiraling trampoline net





people can walk, rest and play on the net
