Richard Meier Houses
by Richard Meier with Paul Goldberger
Rizzoli, September 15th, 1996
Richard Meier is one of the most renowned architects working today. His works are characterized by their rationalism, their rather detached purity, and their large expanses of reticulated forms masterfully articulating voids and solids. An architect obsessed with visual effects, Meier is known for such large-scale projects as the Getty Center in Los Angeles. This oversize book, however, concentrates solely on Meier’s residential works. Fourteen houses are featured through dramatic color photos of both interior and exterior side by side with drawings, plans, and reflections of both the architect and his clients. A bibliography and a chronology of all of Meier’s residential projects, both built and unbuilt, complete this visually stunning volume.
