One of the New York Five, the famed group of progressive modernist architects, Richard Meier gained international recognition—not to mention a Pritzker Prize in 1984—for his abstract geometric designs, masterful use of light, and signature gleaming white buildings. After studying architecture at Cornell University, he worked for Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and then for Marcel Breuer before striking out on his own. He first attracted worldwide attention for the Getty Center in Los Angeles, the sprawling museum complex completed in 1997. Works such as the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art and City Hall for The Hague, Netherlands, as well as various residential projects, have affirmed his status as one of the most visionary architects of our time. Here, Architectural Digest rounds up some of his most celebrated projects, recognized for their inspiring designs and unparalleled contribution to the world of modern architecture.
