Item description for Richard Meier (Electa's Modern Masters) by Richard Meier...

This new title in the Modern Masters series is dedicated to the distinguished American architect, and includes an introductory essay by Kenneth Frampton, one of the most prestigious names in the field of architecture history. This complete monograph presents 89 of Meier's buildings, documenting the principal stages of Meier's career in chronological order, from his early private homes and residential buildings - such as the two large complexes of Twin Parks, Bronx, New York, and the Bronx Development Center - to recent major projects in the United States and in several European countries, including Italy. Among the well-known works in this volume are the Getty Center in Los Angeles, the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art, and the church of Dives in Misericordia, Rome. In the early 1970s, Meier was one of the "New York Five," an informal group of East Coast architects who shared a preference for new and original contributions to the modern tradition and shaped an alternative to the "gray" architecture that dominated highrise East Coast buildings at the time.

Reviews - What do customers think about Richard Meier (Electa's Modern Masters)?

Richard Meier Houses  Jan 9, 2007
What a great synopsis of the work of Richard Meier. Fantastic book. Beautifully done. A must have for any architecture lover.
Beatifully designed but not in English  Feb 6, 2001
Beautifully designed by Taschen, the book covers the major works by Meier from 1965 (Smith House) to the Getty Center (1997). Published in 1995, the later works (such as the Getty) are presented only in models or sketches. The text is not in English but Spanish, French, and Portuguese, so many U.S. readers may have find the book of limited value despite that it among the least expensive books about Meier's works.
Good book for Architects.  Jul 26, 2000
