MAPEI was recently selected to supply materials used in the restoration of the exterior of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City, designed by legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

Since the famous spiral building opened in 1959, the exterior has been beset by cracks, affecting its aesthetic qualities and risking corrosion within its steel reinforcements. In 2004 the Guggenheim initiated a four-year restoration process that included extensive monitoring and product testing.
