“Richard Meier. Architecture and Design” A Retrospective Exhibit
Bisazza Foundation, Montecchio Maggiore
May 17 - July 28, 2013
Viale Milano, 56 - 36075 Montecchio Maggiore

On the 50th Anniversary of Richard Meier & Partners Architects, the Fondazione Bisazza is hosting the European debut of “Richard Meier. Architecture and Design” exhibition, a retrospective of the American architect’s iconic work and the unveiling of a site-specific installation, titled “Internal Time”, especially conceived for the Foundation’s Permanent Collection.

The exhibit – a curatorial project developed in collaboration with Richard Meier & Partners Architects in New York – 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 this great architect through a representative selection of his most 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.
