Item description for Richard Meier: Details by Werner Blaser...
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.
