Designed by Richard Meier & Partners Architects, The Ulm Stadthaus presents a new exhibition of some of the most iconic and current projects by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier. The works on display explore the development of the work of Richard Meier with some of his early residential projects in contrast to some of the more recent urban and large scale projects all around the globe in New York City, Hamburg, Prague and Mexico City.

The exhibition includes a selection of models, original sketches, drawings and photographs. Some of the projects exhibited on the show include the house designed by Richard Meier for his parents in Essex Fells, New Jersey, the Ulm Stadthaus, and the iconic Smith House in Darien, Connecticut. Other projects in the exhibition are some of the more recent and large scale developments such as the Reforma Towers, the East River Masterplan, Coffee Plaza, the Charles & Perry Street Condominiums, ECM City Tower and the unbuilt competition proposals for Madison Square Garden and the New York Historical Society.

HPP Architects has won a competition to extend the campus of Cologne's University of Music and Dance. Chosen over 13 entries, the winning design will enclose a site in the Kunibertsviertel, close to Cologne’s railway station, and transform it into an "attractive" urban area. The plan, deemed by the jury to be a "clear example of a successful urban remedy," also calls for the conversion of an existing building into an animated concert and dance hall.

The opening of the exhibition American Perspectives: From Classic to Contemporary presents the hand-drawn worlds of prominent American architects and architectural draftsmen. The art of architectural representation in the USA, particularly at the beginning of the 20th century, reached heights of originality and perfection, which still stands out today. On show will be works by Frank Lloyed Wright, Richard Neutra, Lebbeus Woods and Achilles Rizzoli.

The Rise Of Private Art Galleries

In an article for The New Yorker, Ben Mauk examines the rise of the private art 'museum.' In the centre of Berlin there sits a "heavy, grey, and shrapnel-pocked" bunker, designed by Nazi architect Karl Bonatz under the direction of Albert Speer which, in 2003, was transformed into a private gallery. Having been bought by Christian and Karen Boros in order to display a portion of their sizeable collection of contemporary art, the only way for a member of the public to gain admittance is by registering online for a group tour. For Mauk, however, this is not necessarily a bad thing. Read the article in full here.

All good things must come to an end, and Guardian Cities' excellent "History of Cities in 50 Buildings" series is sadly no exception, with only a few more left to be published before they hit 50. The whole series is definitely worth the read, bringing in the best of academic and architectural writing from guest authors and the Guardian's own Cities team, but if you're strapped for time - and if you're an architect, it's fairly likely that's true - we've rounded up 10 highlights from the list to get you started.
