Richard Meier, Architect: v. 3 : Architect. Richards Meier Monographs. By (author) Joseph Rykwert, By (author) Kenneth Frampton. The third in a series of Rizzoli monographs on Richard Meier, this volume comprehensively documents the numerous and varied works created since 1992 by one of America's most important architects and a winner of the Pritzker Prize for Architecture.

One of today’s most influential and widely emulated architects, Richard Meier began his career by designing private homes in a modernist style. A decade ago, Rizzoli published Meier’s first fourteen masterful houses; this companion volume, with an in-depth essay on the early houses, picks up where the first volume left off and documents Meier’s most recent residential projects. Meier’s style has evolved over the years, becoming increasingly complex spatially and more structurally daring. Included here are not only single-family homes, such as beach houses in California and Florida, but also sleek apartment buildings, such as the three renowned towers on Perry and Charles Streets in Manhattan, and a luxurious getaway, the Playa Grande Resort and Artists’ Colony in the Dominican Republic. More than 250 color photographs, drawings, and plans give insight into these very significant additions to Meier’s international oeuvre.

While this is a good book, many of the houses in this monograph were covered in the previous Rizzoli publication of Meier's Residential work - 1962 to 1997. Was this just to make the book thicker?

Richard Meier's work is world renouned of course, but he is known mostly for his museums, like the Getty in L.A. and the High in Atlanta, but were he really shines is in his houses, this setting is more intimate and you see his virtuoisty of his work and observe his architecture evolve. His apartment buildings in Manhattan are known for their clean beauty and unfortuinitely also for their miriad of problems, but in this book the focus in rightfully placed on the architecture not the practicality or the durability, and since i have neither the capitol nor the desire to live in one of his apartments the point is moot to me. Suffice to say if you have any interest in Meier or of beautiful modern architecture then I highly recommend ths book.

I recieved this book as a gift and was very surprised. Its giver told me she had read a great review of it in the WSJ, and, judging the book by its cover (as all such books may well be sampled) I was excited. I am a great fan of Mr. Meier, so that may make me a little biased, but to Rizzoli's credit, this book is very well done. While I am more interested in his civic buildings, Meier's residential work is so rich that I will concede that it deserves its own volume.
The writings (there are a few essays included) are a nice accompaniment for a relative outsider in the Architecture world, such as myself. The photography is stunning and captures the use light and materials quite nicely. My only complaint is that some of the photographs do not seem to focus so much on the architecture as much as the surrounding environment: stunning views from apartments and private homes as well as a throuroughly modernist approach to siting the structures. Also, some work gets less attention than I would prefer, especially some of the early houses that could be seen as touchstones in the arhictect's career.
But, in toto, this book does a good job of describing and documenting a great swath of Richard Meier's storied architecure and it is well worth exploring.
