Review - Exhibition - Richard Meier: Art and Architecture

The AA’s director is taken round the American legend’s first exhibition in the UK
Richard Meier: Art and Architecture, at the Louise T Blouin Institute, London W11,
until February 2008.

AJ 25.10.07

Brett Steele Tell us about the exhibition.

Richard Meier Well, it’s a little bit of everything; something old and something
new. Here, of course, is the Getty Center – I must have 50 models of it.

BS I remember one you had at the Netherlands Architecture Institute a few years ago, like the size of a room. [Points] Wow, I haven’t seen these ones. Are these recent?

RM Yeah. These are three-dimensional collages. These are pieces that are discarded from Getty models (pictured above, foreground left), which were made in wood, and then cast in stainless steel. It’s like a collage sculpture.

BS A lot of materials, a lot of models. It’s seriously reworking the history of a project. Have you done that before?

RM No.

BS So which is your favourite?
