The Richard Meier. Architecture and Design exhibit gives a complete overview of the works of one of the leading figures in contemporary architecture, presented for the first time in Italy. Fondazione Bisazza pays tribute to Richard Meier through a representative selection of his influential works including models, technical drawings, photographs and preliminary sketches and some lesser known design objects such as a tableware collection with Reed & Barton in collaboration with Swid Powell.
From the Smith House in Connecticut to the Getty Center in Los Angeles and the Neugebauer House in Naples, Florida; from the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, the project competition to build the World Trade Center Memorial and the Avery Fisher Hall in New York, to the Bibliothèque Nationale in France and the recently completed Arp Museum in Rolandseck, Germany, the works of the American architect are recognizable geometrical and spatial compositions. The Richard Meier. Architecture and Design exhibition also features some of his most famous projects in Italy: the Italcementi i.lab in Bergamo, the Ara Pacis museum complex in Rome and The Jubilee Church in Tor Tre Teste.
Fondazione Bisazza is also proud to be able to enhance its Permanent Collection with a site-specific installation, Internal Time, envisioned and created by Richard Meier especially for the Fondazione’s spaces.
