|Personal Fact of Richard Meier|
Richard Alan Meier is an American architect whose work of architecture is noted for its geometric patterns, rich spatial exposures with emphasis on light and a dominance of the use of white colour that gives the structures a pristine look. His works exemplify his variations and refinements on the principles of classic modernist architecture. The white sculptural pieces that he created initiated a new language of designs in the1980s.
He is the preeminent figure of the New York Five, a group of five architects of New York City that include Charles Gwathmey, John Hejduk, Peter Eisenman and Michael Graves. One of his earlier works that received critical acclaim was the Smith House in Darien, Connecticut and later he drew attention for his spectacular work of Douglas House.
His successful endeavours in building private residences earned him several commissions like the the Museum of Decorative Arts in Frankfurt, Germany; the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona, Spain; Atheneum in New Harmony, Indiana, US and Getty Center in Los Angeles, California. He has received several awards from various architectural associations including many from the American Institutes of Architects (AIA).
