Guggenheim Museum - New York

In 2005, some 12 layers of paint applied over the past 46 years were removed and the building’s concrete surface has been revealed, allowing for close analysis of the building’s surface. Detailed monitoring of the movement of selected cracks over an entire year, laser surveys, and other studies will be used by the restoration team to formulate an appropriate methodology to repair the cracks and ensure the building’s long-term health. Scaffolding will remain in place through spring 2008. The museum is expected to remain open throughout the restoration process.
