Description:
Architect Richard Meir was once asked to choose one building type he preferred to do for the rest of his life. One look through Richard Meier: Building for Art is all you need to guess. This large format monograph—an elegant blend of photographs, plans, drawings, and sections—presents seven of Meier's most interesting museum projects. Short texts address each project's specific design challenges as well as the way each building addresses Meir's ideas about the relationship between art and architecture. 

Museum projects include:

The New York School Exhibition, Albany, N.Y.
The Museum of Modern Art at the Villa Strozzi, Florence
Frank Stella/Richard Meier Collaboration
Museum für angewandte Kunst Frankfurt, Germany
The High Museum of Art, Atlanta, Georgia
The Des Moines Art Center Addition, Des Moines, Iowa
The J. Paul Getty Center, Los Angeles, California
