The objective of this exhibition is to illustrate the development of the work of Richard Meier and in doing so, to examine the philosophy, the process and the vision of a celebrated architect and artist.
Richard Meier’s international body of work is acclaimed for its timeless, classical, iconic design from the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art to the Getty Center in Los Angeles to Rome’s Jubilee Church. By showcasing a variety of architectural drawings and sketches, original photographs and study models, this exhibition will explore the diversity of the challenges inherent within each project: social, environmental, aesthetic, technological and economic. Several of the firm’s newest projects will be featured including the Leblon Offices, Rio De Janeiro; Reforma Towers, Mexico City, Mexico and Rothschild Tower, Tel Aviv, Israel. Several of Meier’s original collages will also be featured within this exhibition, inviting audience members to explore the relationship between the two disciplines.
