FR Review:
Since he's an architectural deity himself, it's fitting that the Vatican is one of Richard Meier's clients. While museums, high-tech medical facilities, commercial buildings, and major civic commissions exemplify Meier's work, he still blesses residential clients with his renowned talent. We hear the Cornell-educated Meier only selects serious projects with doubly serious budgets.

Recognized worldwide for his emphasis on light, geometric precision, and extensive use of glass, Richard Meier's modern work exemplifies the architect's own definition of his profession: "Architecture is the thoughtful making of space." His work shows the influence of Le Corbusier in the balance, mathematical rhythm, and cubic forms it employs, but focuses on creating volumes of space within a building. Meier's predominantly white palette highlights vertical and horizontal elements and shifting grids, and porcelain panels often lend luminosity to otherwise monochromatic surfaces. Meier is famous for many buildings, but arguably his most acclaimed projects are the Getty Center in Los Angeles, the Jubilee Church in Rome, and the iconic Charles and Perry Street Towers in New York City.

The firm is led by Meier and six partners – Michael Palladino, James R. Crawford, Bernhard Karpf, Vivian Lee, Reynolds Logan, Dukho Yeon – and sustains an international practice with offices in New York and Los Angeles. Aside from beauty and elegance, the firm aspires to create structures in a reasonable time frame, and sustainable for future generations. Recent projects include one of the most sustainable office and research buildings in Europe for Italcementi in Bergamo, Italy, and the first office project in the Czech Republic built on a speculative basis to receive the highest LEED certification. Richard Meier & Partners have received 30 National Honor Awards from the American Institute of Architects and over 50 from the New York AIA and other regional chapters. AIA Fellow 1976. AD 100, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2010, 2012, 2014. ID Hall of Fame.

Representative Client Comments:
"As good as it gets." "The Itzhak Perlman of architecture." "On the Perry Street project the design was gorgeous, but some of the practical details fell through the cracks." "The most serious architect working today." "Probably the most well-known architect of our time."
