Due to the recent torrential rains and flooding in New York, The Guggenheim was recently moved to higher ground... Details here:

I would have left the Gwathmey-Siegel bit behind in NYC....the composition looks better without it, particularly from the back (east).

Meanwhile, transport Rafael Uribe Uribe to the vacated plot on Fifth Avenue. That wouldn't be as much of a shock; there are places in NYC where such a contrast is not all that unusual.

I assume there's some sort of political point to the exercise, but I am not sure what it is.

I think it's just art. There are a couple of photographer/designers who play with buildings and Photoshop (or whatever). I like them all. A couple of them are available on the same designboom page . . .

The last photo here required some extra work, creating the backside of the Guggenheim tower as if torn away from its neighbors ?

That's my favorite (at least as far as art goes...) Exposing the ugliest backside.

I expect the multiple views of the museum were acquired by drone; matching the perspective for each shot took a lot of time at the "new location," no doubt. One doesn't easily relocate the vanishing points digitally !
