FROM FRONT FLAP:
Over his thirty-five-year career Richard Meier has produced an internationally recognized body of work that reinterprets and recovers the ideals of modernism. With the completion of the landmark Getty Center in Los Angeles, Meier's distinct vision has emerged as architecture that is truly for our time. This catalog, accompanying a major exhibition organized by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (and traveling throughout the world), beautifully documents Meier's career with exquisite duotone photographs and the architect's own drawings, most of which have never been published.
Twenty-five of Meier's masterworks are featured, including the Smith House in Darien, Connecticut; the Douglas House, on the shores of Lake Michigan; the Museum for Decorative Arts in Frankfurt; the Canal+ Headquarters in Paris; the Museum of ISBN 1580930611 (PB), 1580930441 (HC) from Monacelli (304 pp) as an exhibition catalog. Each work presentation is headed by a short description on 1/4 of its initial page containing also usually the site plan. Then comes a b&w photo on 1 or 2 pages, and subsequently hard-line b&w plans, sections, elevations, more b&w photos, sometimes hard-line b&w 3d axonometric view, various schematics, or even conceptual hand drawings - all of the top quality. Everything is very well graphically designed, printed on semi-glossy paper, and soft-/hardbound.Read more ›
