Officials of New York's Guggenheim Museum have scaled back a controversial plan to build a high-rise addition to the 1959 Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Fifth Avenue landmark. According to plans unveiled Tuesday, the new museum wing will be 10 stories high instead of 11 and will not feature a much-criticized overhang jutting out above the low-slung, circular Guggenheim. Officials said the new design is based on plans that Wright himself made in the '50s for an addition to the museum.
