Book review: Richard Meier Artist’s Edition

Limited edition of 100 copies worldwide, clothbound in a clamshell box, each numbered and signed by Richard Meier. The artwork is a silkscreen print (20 x 30 cm / 8 x 12 inches) on mould made paper. The trademark of celebrated architect Richard Meier (born 1934) is his use of white structures. He began his career building numerous private homes, and then moved on to administrative buildings, museums and residential complexes notable for their complex groundplans and axial twists – features that have had a decisive influence on contemporary architecture. The Getty Center in Los Angeles, scheduled for completion in 1996, gave Meier the opportunity to tackle the most ambitious project of the decade. This limited edition monograph traces the development of Richard Meier, one of the foremost architects of our times, and affords a generous overview of his projects to date, including: Smith House, Darien (CT), 1965-1967 Bronx Development Center, New York (NY), 1970-1977 Douglas House, Harbor Springs (MI), 1971-1973 The Atheneum, New Harmony (IN), 1975-1979 Hartford Seminary, Hartford (CT), 1978-1981 Museum for Decorative Ars, Frankfurt/ Main, 1979-1985 Giovanitti House, Pittsburgh (PA), 1979-1983 High Museum of Art, Atlanta (GA), 1980-1983 Des Moines Art Center Adddition, Des Moines (IA), 1982-1984…
