The Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey (MARCO) presents a retrospective exhibition of some of the most emblematic works of renowned architect Richard Meier. The works on display included in the exhibition make it possible to view his design philosophy as a whole and in depth for the first time, with examples of nearly every type of work.

The retrospective includes a selection of models, original sketches, renderings, photographs, and product design. Some of the iconic projects exhibited on the show include the Smith House, The Getty Center, The Neugebauer Residence and the Jubilee Church. Other projects on view in the retrospective are well-known architectural projects such as the Perry Street Towers, the High Museum of Art, the Ara Pacis Museum, and the recently completed Arp Museum in Germany.

In addition, some of the current projects in Mexico are displayed along the unbuilt competition proposals for the World Trade Center Memorial, the New York Avery Fisher Hall, and the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. One of the galleries in the show is exclusively dedicated to Meier’s product designs where one can appreciate a series of objects and sketches created for Knoll International Inc., Swid Powell, and the recent designs for Markuse Corporation and When Objects Work.
