The great American architect's career to date

From his early days as one of the "New York Five," Richard Meier has been a central figure in contemporary architecture. With the Getty Center and more recent buildings such as the Jubilee Church in Rome, Meier has established a reputation for expanded the horizons of contemporary American architecture while maintaining his rigorously rational approach to design and detailing. Known for carefully conceived grid plans and frequent use of white, Meier is a master of light, space and volume, able to adapt his style to very different circumstances and locations.

The entire span of Meier’s career, right up to his most recent designs for New York and Shenzhen, is included in this exceptional volume, created in close collaboration between the architect, the author, and the eminent graphic designer Massimo Vignelli. This spectacular monograph displays Meier’s work in unprecedented size and brilliance, and features a preface by the noted Spanish architect Alberto Campo Baeza.
The author:
Alberto Campo Baeza (b. Spain, 1946) studied in Madrid, where he obtained his PhD in 1982 at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura (ETSAM). He has taught at various universities worldwide, including ETSAM as Head Professor of Design. Among his most important architectural works are the BIT Center in Mallorca (1998), the Caja General de Granada Headquarters (2001), the Guerrero House (Cádiz, 2005), and various private residences, such as the De Blas House, Sevilla de la Nueva (2000).

The editor and author:
Philip Jodidio (born 1954) studied art history and economics at Harvard, and edited Connaissance des Arts for over 20 years. His books include TASCHEN’s Architecture Now! series, and monographs on Tadao Ando, Norman Foster, Richard Meier, Jean Nouvel, and Zaha Hadid.

"Architectures sans frontières. Les éditions TASCHEN nous font voyager entre New York et Tokyo... Nouvel, Hadid, Calatrava, Meier, Ando, Piano... Le défilé des poids lourds de l'architecture contemporaine se poursuit à presque 100 euros le volume de quelque 600 pages. Voici maintenant, pour mieux martyriser votre bibliothèque, deux nouveau solides percherons dans l'écurie des éditions TASCHEN: Shigeru Ban, l'auteur du Centre Pompidou Metz, et Coop Himmelb(l)au, agence de Wolf Prix... Poids lourds et percherons ne sont au demeurant pas les seuls à occuper la vitrine de TASCHEN. S'engageant dans la publication des œuvres complètes de Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959), l'éditeur avait pris le parti paradoxal, et un peu frustrant, de commencer par le tome 3, qui couvre les années 1943 à 1959... Voici maintenant le tome 2, qui nous emmène au cœur d'une période plus tourmentée (décès, divorce, faillite) mais très riche et plus difficile à comprendre."
