The sixth volume in Rizzoli's best-selling series of monographs on the work of Richard Meier, one of America's most important and acclaimed architects. Richard Meier Architect: Volume 6 comprehensively documents the architect's work since 2009. This extensively illustrated presentation, designed by renowned graphic artist Massimo Vignelli, vividly conveys the purity and power of Meier's unique and celebrated vision. Thirty residential, commercial, and civic projects are featured, including new residential complexes in Italy, Japan, Israel, and Turkey; private homes in the United States, Switzerland, Italy, and Luxembourg; a public plaza in Germany; a U.S. courthouse and a clubhouse in China; and other projects in Mexico, Canada, Brazil, India, South Korea, and France.

The development and significance of Meier's work is discussed in an essay by the distinguished architectural historian Kenneth Frampton.

A biographical chronology and selected bibliography complete this lavish monograph on a modern American master.
