Richard Meier: Artistic Conscience
Richard Meier: Artistic Conscience explores the relationship between art and architecture as seen through the artistic conscience of Cornell alumnus and Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier (B.Arch. '56). This exhibition offers a glimpse into the creative processes behind the architecture, through works in four mediums: collage, sculpture, architectural drawing and scale models. Examples of Meier's personal artistic explorations are presented alongside drawings and models of two unbuilt projects proposed for Cornell University's campus: Cornell Undergraduate Housing (1974) and Alumni & Admissions Center (1988). This installation integrates the abstract and seemingly chaotic nature of Meier's artwork with the order and geometry characteristic of his architecture.
