Richard Meier is one of the world's leading architects, whose formidable contribution both to private and public architecture, has been recently recognized by the Royal Gold Medal. This book presents a comprehensive selection of buildings and projects to date, together with speeches given by David Carson, Kenneth Frampton and Richard Meier himself at the RIBA Gold Medal presentation ceremony in 1988. A unique series of interviews between Richard Meier and Charles Jencks, conducted over a number of years, sets the work of Meier in an historical context. "Essentially Meier belongs to the Modern tradition of Enlightenment thinkers and Le Corbusier's white architecture, even though I would argue his is a late-Modern version of this movement. By contrast, the Post-Modern tradition emphasises creation within convention, public comprehensibility, ornament and symbolism and the reader will see that Meier has attacked this in the interviews and his RIBA Gold Medal Address": [Charles Jencks].
