Let there be light. This title presents the work of celebrated American architect Richard Meier. As one of the most important contemporary architects, Richard Meier (born 1934) is a key figure in "TASCHEN's Basic Architecture Series". His brilliant career ranges from elegant family homes to dazzling institutional buildings like the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art. This work gives an insight into the development of his oeuvre starting with the early designs and ending with his latest buildings, exploring the combination of precisely calculated proportions and high quality materials resulting in exquisite structures and light flooded spaces.
