Richard Meier

Richard Meier portrait banner

Part of the renowned New York Five group of Modernist architects, Richard Meier (b. 1934) has led his own practice since 1963. Over the course of his fifty-year career, the Pritzker Prize-winning architect has consistently placed formal clarity, light, and abstraction at the center of his work. Equally committed to pedagogy, Meier also advocates for the role of architecture in government, education, and community. He is best-known for the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art, the Getty Center in Los Angeles, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia and the Jubilee Church in Rome.
