I just finished reading Dan Brown's "Origin". The Guggenheim plays a big part in the book and it seemed to fit the bill for the trivia question. I thought it was an interesting read.

Sometimes lost is where you need to be. Just because you don't know your direction doesn't mean you don't have one.
