Richard Meier, Architect Volume 5 by Richard Meier Pdf

Richard Meier, Architect: Volume 5 comprehensively documents Meier’s work since 2004. This extensively illustrated presentation vividly conveys the purity and power of Meier’s vision. Thirty residential, commercial, and civic projects are featured, including the Ara Pacis Museum in Rome, the Burda Collection Museum and Arp Museum in Germany, San Jose City Hall, the Broad Art Center at UCLA, apartment towers in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and master plans for Newark, New Jersey, and Manhattan’s East Side. Richard Meier received his architectural training at Cornell University and began his career in the early 1960s designing private residential projects whose elegant modernist style and white facades have become icons of modern architecture. Since that time, his international practice has included museums, courthouses, city halls, corporate headquarters, educational facilities, and public housing, in addition to private houses. He has received numerous awards for his work, including the Pritzker Prize for Architecture and the Gold Medal of the American Institute of Architects.

Five Architects by Museum of Modern Art (New York, N.Y.) Pdf

Five Architects, originally published in 1975, grew out of a meeting of the CASE group (Conference of Architects for the Study of the Environment) held at the Museum of Modern Art in 1969. The purpose of this gathering was to exhibit and criticize the work of five architects -- Eisenman, Graves, Gwathmey, Hejduk, and Meier -- who constituted a New York school, and who are now among the most influential architects working today.The buildings shown here have more diversity than one might expect from a school, but share certain properties of form, scale, and treatment of material. Collectively, their work makes a modest claim: it is only architecture, not the salvation of man and the redemption of the earth.Providing complete drawings and photographic documentation, this collection also includes a comparative critique by Kenneth Frampton, an Introduction by Colin Rowe that suggests a still broader context for the work as a whole, and two short texts in which individual positions are outlined. Now back in,print, Five Architects serves as a reference to the early work of some of America's most important architects and provides us with a glimpse back at the direction of architecture as they saw it over twenty years ago.

Richard Meier by Silvio Cassarà Pdf

Beginning with his ascent in the late 1960s, the work of Richard Meier has been identified with a careful but decisive reflection on modernity, its origins, and its potential as a continuing source of innovation. Collected here for the first time in paperback are the large-scale projects Meier developed during the last decade–mature works that coincide with his celebration as one of the world’s foremost architects. His reflections on being heir to an abstract modernist ethic meld together with his concepts of the city and the contemporary landscape. Meier’s architecture privileges large public works above others, using their monumentality to imagine the possibilities of contemporary civic spaces. The recent Church for the Jubilee in Rome demonstrates the conjunction of modernity with simplicity and emotion of form, light, and material. But Meier also uses smaller-scale private commissions–such as the celebrated 173/176 Perry Street residential towers in New York–as an opportunity to explore the limits of his unique and immediately recognizable brand of modernism.

Details by Werner Blaser,Richard Meier Pdf

In this book Werner Blaser presents the most important buildings and projects that Richard Meier has produced and designed in recent years. They include Canal Plus, Paris; Royal Dutch Paper Mill, Hilversum; Hypolux Bank, Luxembourg; Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art; The Hague City Hall and Central Library; Museum of Television and Radio, Los Angeles; Euregio Office Building, Basel; Rachofsky Residence, Dallas; and the Court House, Long Island. All the buildings and projects are presented from the same aspects: situation, program, circulation structure, texture, layers. This permits an effective comparison of the various buildings, and brings out their aesthetic individuality and the guiding principles behind their construction. Thus, through the example of key details, this monograph shows that the latest works of Richard Meier are also commited to the idea of the classical work of art, in that they combine the simple with the noble in a contemporary way and into a harmonious whole.
