This book documents the complete architectural work of Richard Meier from Neo-Purist – or neo-Cubist or neofunctionalist – projects of the 1960s to Meier’s much-admired public buildings and art museums of the mid-1980s. The book has been edited by Joan Ockman and published by Rizzoli in 1984. The introduction has been written  by Joseph Rykwert, distinguished architectural historian. There is also an intriguing postscript by John Hejduk, Meier’s collaborator in the famous Team Five, or the New York Whites, in the 1970s.

The book features Meier’s built and unbuilt projects in a chronological order. The lavish illustration consists of both colour and black-and-white photographs, architectural drawings and sketches.
