Richard Meier: Artistic Conscience explores the relationship between art and architecture as seen through the artistic conscience of Cornell alumnus and Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier. The exhibition offers a glimpse into the creative processes behind the architect, through works in four mediums collage, sculpture, architectural drawing and scale models. Examples of Meier’s personal artistic explorations are presenting alongside drawings and models of two unbuilt projects proposed for Cornell University’s campus: Cornell Undergraduate Housing (1974) and Alumni & Admissions Center (1988). This installation integrates the abstract and seemingly chaotic nature of Meier’s artwork with the order and geometry characteristic of his architecture.
The exhibition is organized by Richard Meier & Partners Architects and the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning, Cornell University.
