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.

The work celebrates natural light and space in response to the environs in which it stands, thereby creating sublime spaces of aesthetic illumination and enlightened cultural values.

Richard Meier comments: “Building the Ulm Stadthaus and the Münsterplatz in Germany has been a rare and uniquely gratifying experience. Twenty-two years after completing this project it is an honor to have our work on display at a building and civic space that we designed and represents the design philosophy of our Firm.

The changes that we can see in the forms that buildings have taken over time are not only a reflection of technological progress, but of the progress of society, of morality, of civilization itself. So, while Architecture is forever providing us with volumes about where we have been, it is at the same time offering us clues about where we may still be able to go. It is an honor to have some of our early and current projects on display in a country where we are about to start several new architectural projects.”

The opening reception will be on July 8, 2015, and the exhibition will be on display from July 8, 2015 to November 22, 2015. Picture, Tower, Building. Richard Meier and the Ulm Minster is organized by Dr. Sylvia Claus, Prof. Dr. Matthias Schirren, the Stadthaus Ulm and Richard Meier & Partners Architects.
