Let there be light. This title presents the work of celebrated American architect Richard Meier.
As one of the most important contemporary architects, Richard Meier (born 1934) is a key figure in "TASCHEN's Basic Architecture Series".
His brilliant career ranges from elegant family homes to dazzling institutional buildings like the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art.
This work gives an insight into the development of his oeuvre starting with the early designs and ending with his latest buildings, exploring the combination of precisely calculated proportions and high quality materials resulting in exquisite structures and light flooded spaces. Every book in "TASCHEN's Basic Architecture Series" features: approximately 120 images, including photographs, sketches, drawings, and floor plans; introductory essays exploring the architect's life and work, touching on family and background as well as collaborations with other architects; the most important works presented in chronological order, with descriptions of client and/or architect wishes as well as construction problems and resolutions; and, an appendix including a list of complete or selected works, biography, bibliography and a map indicating the locations of the architect's most famous buildings.
