About this title


Richard Meier, one of America's most influential and widely emulated architects, began his career in the early 1960s designing private residential projects, whose elegant modernist style and white facades have become icons of modern architecture. Renowned as the designer of large-scale works around the world, including the Jubilee Church in Rome and the Getty Center in Los Angeles, Meier has set an international style all his own based on the purity and power of his unique vision. This beautifully photographed volume is the first to document Meier's complete catalogue of museum and gallery projects, including the seminal High Museum in Atlanta (recently featured on a U.S. postage stamp in a series that includes the Guggenheim Museum and the Chrysler Building), the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona, the Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills, the Getty Center, and the Ara Pacis Museum in Rome. Richard Meier Museums presents these and other celebrated projects in stunning full-color interior and exterior photography and extensive drawings and plans to give the fullest understanding of this modernist master's remarkable contribution to the art of museum design.
