Meier is one of the greatest modernist architects of our time and this is a great reference of his work.

Now i might be a little biased considering Meier is my favorite architect, but this book is amazing. Pictures are top notch and all the drawing displaying plans, sections and elevations are really well done. I would recommend this to other aspiring architecture students like myself. However, as much as i like Meier's work, the buildings can be a bit repetitive. But that's just coming from the fact that he likes the color white.

Format: Hardcover
Richard Meier's work is so gorgeous and this book captures in perfectly, in vivid, crisp images and insightful text. Personally, I love all of Meier's work, but his Museums are where he guilds the lilly, but in a good way, because of the massive budgets, he can indulge, and he does. In the breathtaking Getty, he had a benefactor with unlimited resourses and he created, what most consider his signature building, which is given its due in this book. Meier's work is unique and so clean, he is known of course for his stark white moderne exteriors and generous use of glass and light, and to walk into one of his buildings is exhilarating. He is a singular architect and this book does his work justice. Highly recommended..if you where not a Meier fan before this book, I assure you you will be one after. Uh, whoever gave this review an unhelpful..has obviously never seen this book..or is an idiot with dubious taste.
