Meier & Partners: Complete Works 1963–2013
By Philip Jodidio
From his early days as one of the “New York Five,” Richard Meier has been a central figure in contemporary architecture. With the Getty Center and more recent buildings such as the Jubilee Church in Rome, Meier has secured his reputation for expanding the horizons of contemporary American architecture while maintaining his rigorously rational approach to design and detailing.
Known for carefully conceived grid plans and frequent use of white, Meier is a master of light, space, and volume, able to adapt his style to very different circumstances and locations. Celebrating his firm’s 50th anniversary, this monograph spans Meier’s complete career to date in stunning scale and brilliance. With a preface by the noted Spanish architect Alberto Campo Baeza.
