Richard Meier Houses and Apartments

One of today's most influential and widely emulated architects, Richard Meier began his career by designing private homes in a modernist style. A decade ago, Rizzoli published Meier's first fourteen masterful houses; this companion volume, with an in-depth essay on the early houses, picks up where the first volume left off and documents Meier's most recent residential projects. Meier's style has evolved over the years, becoming increasingly complex spatially and more structurally daring. Included here are not only single-family homes, such as beach houses in California and Florida, but also sleek apartment buildings, such as the three renowned towers on Perry and Charles Streets in Manhattan, and a luxurious getaway, the Playa Grande Resort and Artists' Colony in the Dominican Republic. More than 250 color photographs, drawings, and plans give insight into these very significant additions to Meier's international oeuvre.
