Guggenheim Museum's new cone-shaped building extension may cause some stir around the arts community. The Guggenheim Museum in New York is one of the most iconic works of American architect Frank Lloyd Wright and is highly cherished by the visitors and art lovers.

While icon building extensions are usually built around as a separate element of the building, OIIO Architecture's new extension idea involves the current building's form completely.

The architects are hoping to spiral out the museums current half cone shape in making it suitable for a full scoop. The idea will add a third floor to the building and, in my opinion, will make it look quite nice while also extending its functionality.
