I'm in.
Exhibit to include: "the model of the Guggenheim museum"
... that alone would be worth the price of admission.
It's got a glass chignon on top!

Okay, enough with the chignons !

If ever an online piece ought to include the term, it's this one:

Apparently the writer is too young to have heard of a chignon ? Or perhaps "Brandy Dean" just likes the word "spiral" . . .

The Guggenheim would have looked terrible with a flattop.

For an early example of the building's influence (unless the influence flowed in the opposite direction), note the hat:

Is an architectural feature significant to the appearance of a building if said feature cannot be seen by an observer ?

SDR, technically what you posted is a French twist. Of course, with today's sloppy use of the language, I suppose chignon could refer to anything that involves hair over an inch long.

I agree, Tom, the Johnson Wax skylight design FLW intended for Guggenheim would have been superior. Faye Emerson would have approved.
