  1. Current Work
    Richard Meier
    Recorded: January 23, 2014
    Running time: 28:38

    Richard Meier founded his New York City-based firm in 1963. His practice has completed commissions worldwide that range from civic structures, museums, and corporate headquarters, to housing and private residences. From early projects through today, Meier and his partners continue to embody the accolades of the Pritzker Prize citation given to him almost thirty years ago: that in his “single-minded pursuit of the essence of modern architecture … he has broadened its range of forms to make it responsive to the expectations of our time.”

    On the occasion of his 50th anniversary in practice, Meier gave a special lecture as part of the League’s Current Work program. The Current Work series invites significant international figures who powerfully influence contemporary architectural practice and shape the future of the built environment to present their work and ideas to a public audience.

    In his lecture, Meier presents a survey of his first 50 years of practice, touching on the following projects: Lambert Beach House (Fire Island, NY); his offices at 56 East 53rd Street, 136 East 57th Street, and 475 10th Avenue (New York, NY); Smith House (Darien, CT); Douglas House (Harbor Springs, MI); Museum for Applied Art (Frankfurt, Germany); Grotta House (Harding Township, NJ); Museum of Contemporary Art (Barcelona, Spain); The Getty Center (Los Angeles, CA); Neugebauer House (Naples, FL); United States Courthouse (Islip, NY); 173/176 Perry Street (New York, NY); 165 Charles Street (New York, NY); Jubilee Church (Rome, Italy); Arp Museum (Remagen-Rolandseck, Germany); Weill Hall, Cornell University (Ithaca, NY); Coffee Plaza (Hamburg, Germany); OCT Shenzhen Clubhouse (Shenzhen, China); Italcementi i.lab (Bergamo, Italy); Jesolo Lido Condominium (Jesolo, Italy); City Green Court (Prague, Czech Republic); Luxembourg House (Luxembourg); Teachers Village (Newark, NJ); HH Resort & Spa (Gangneung, South Korea); Rothschild Tower (Tel Aviv, Israel); Vitrum Residential Towers (Bogota, Colombia); Taichung Condominium Tower (Taichung, Taiwan); Reforma Towers (Mexico City, Mexico); and The Surf Club (Surfside, FL).
