Sept. 6, 1957: Frank Lloyd Wright with an assistant assesses his latest creation, a museum to house Solomon R. Guggenheim’s growing modern art collection.”Mr. Guggenheim came to me twelve years ago and said he wanted a museum specifically for the advanced type of paintings he collected,” Mr. Wright said. He went on, in an absorbing piece for The Times magazine: “ ‘This is the only organic building in New York,’ says Wright. ‘Each part is the consequence of the other, as things are in nature.’ ” Photo: Sam Falk/The New York Times

So apparently there are pieces of the Berlin Wall in various NYC locations.

Feral House #13 and Feral House #7 by James Griffioen

“As the city of Detroit disappears, nature is flourishing. I am interested in the duplicity of plant life in Detroit as both blindly innocent and somehow deeply sinister. The two feral houses selected here stood within three blocks of the border between Detroit and the old-money suburbs of Grosse Pointe: more than a municipal border, it is one of race, class and social order. In Grosse Pointe, meticulously groomed and maintained ivy walls of homes and institutions are a symbol of social elitism. In Detroit, ivy also flourishes as a symbol of the indomitable spirit of nature.”—Artist James Griffioen
