The Louise T Blouin Institute is currently celebrating the retrospective exhibition of Richard Meier: Art and Architecture. The solo exhibition presents Meier’s extraordinary versatility as artist, designer and architect and comprises an overview of Meier’s outstanding international architectural creations together with an exploration of his sculpture, collages, drawings, photographs, furniture and product design over 45 years.

Richard Meier remains the youngest recipient of the Pritzker Prize (1984) which is considered to be architecture’s highest accolade. He is renowned internationally for cultural projects which include The Getty Center, Los Angeles; the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, Georgia; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Barcelona; and the Jubilee Church, Rome, amongst others.

Meier has over the years developed his own distinctive and dynamic style of architecture to become one of America’s most influential and widely emulated architects. His work celebrates natural light and space in response to the environs in which it stands, thereby creating sublime spaces of aesthetic illumination and enlightened cultural values.

Parallel to 45 years of architectural practice, Richard Meier has been making sculpture and collages and ceramics. The sculpture and collages, which he has created from papers, tickets and cuttings collected on his travels, express space and pivotal moments that are explored and articulated in his buildings.

Meier’s furniture, ceramic, glassware and silver objects have become iconic designs and marry a minimalist tradition with beautiful simplicity. To highlight his extraordinary versatility as a designer we are exhibiting a unique grand piano designed by Richard Meier and built by IBACH.

Louise T Blouin MacBain, Chairman of the Foundation, comments: ‘We are delighted to be exhibiting Richard Meier. Art and architecture are central to the expression and collective enjoyment of creativity and fundamental to our sense of well-being. The individual aesthetics of architecture shared in cities across the world is one of the positive aspects of globalisation and adds to our growing cultural exchange.’

There will also be an extensive programme of lectures, education work and public events to explore architecture and the environment, well-being, art and light within an architectural space.
