"Richard Meier, one of America's most influential and widely emulated architects, began his career in the early 1960s designing private houses and residential projects whose elegant modernist style and white facades have become icons of modern architecture. Renowned as the designer of large projects throughout the world, such as the Frankfurt Museum for the Decorative Arts, the Getty Center in Los Angeles, and The Hague City Hall and Central Library, Meier set a style all his own in such memorable houses as his exquisite Smith House of 1967, on the coast of Connecticut in Darien; his spacious country house in Old Westbury, on Long Island; and his spectacular Douglas House facing Lake Michigan in Harbor Springs." "This beautifully photographed volume is the first ever to document Meier's complete residential oeuvre, showcasing fourteen of his built houses in the United States with stunning color interior and exterior photography, drawings and plans, and the clients' personal reflections as well as Meier's own insightful commentary on each house."--BOOK JACKET.
