Building the Getty.
Item Number: 1911
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1997.
First edition. Oblong quarto, original cloth. Signed and inscribed by the author on the title page, “with best wishes Richard Meier.” Fine in a fine dust jacket.
Richard Meier won both the Pritzker Prize (1984) and the AIA Gold Medal (1997). He has built the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art, the City Hall and Central Library, and The Hague Getty Center, Los Angeles. Meier builds onto the style of the mid-20th century architects. The early work of Le Corbusier is a particular inspiration, and most of Meier's work has been inspired by Corbusier's idea, more at least, than anyone. Of course, Meier expanded from his predecessor. Some examples are the Villa Savoye and the Swiss Pavilion.
