Richard Meier - Artist's Edition

Limited edition of 100 copies worldwide, clothbound in a clamshell box, each numbered and signed by Richard Meier in 1996. The artwork is a silkscreen print (20 x 30 cm / 8 x 12 inches) on mould made paper.

The trademark of celebrated architect Richard Meier (born 1934) is his use of white structures. He began his career building numerous private homes, and then moved on to administrative buildings, museums and residential complexes notable for their complex groundplans and axial twists - features that have had a decisive influence on contemporary architecture. The Getty Center in Los Angeles, scheduled for completion in 1996, gave Meier the opportunity to tackle the most ambitious project of the decade.
