Firm Description


Richard Meier received his architectural training at Cornell University and established his own office in New York City in 1963. He has received the highest honors in the field including the Pritzker Prize for Architecture, the Gold Medals of the American Institute of Architects and the Royal Institute of British Architects as well as the Praemium Imperiale from the Japan Art Association.

For over five decades, Richard Meier & Partners has been selected to create important works in both the public and private spheres. We aspire to thoughtful, elegant contemporary architecture that exceeds our clients’ expectations for beauty and form, and fulfills complex programmatic and operational needs.

The work of Richard Meier & Partners is instantly recognizable and internationally respected. Our projects have received 30 National Honor Awards from the American Institute of Architects and over 50 from the New York AIA and other regional chapters.

Our offices in New York and Los Angeles employ a multicultural staff of talented professionals that has produced construction documents, and supervised construction, in 18 countries and 16 languages. The firm is led by Richard Meier and six partners – Michael Palladino, James R. Crawford, Bernhard Karpf, Vivian Lee, Reynolds Logan and Dukho Yeon.

Our practice has extensive experience across a broad range of building types and sizes: cultural facilities, government offices, libraries and educational buildings, media production facilities, industrial research complexes, corporate headquarters, hotels and private residences.

The firm is well known for the The Getty Center in Los Angeles, federal courthouses on Long Island and in Phoenix, the Jubilee Church in Rome, and the iconic Charles and Perry Street Towers in New York City.

We have produced important office buildings and headquarters in the United States and across Europe in Germany, France, Switzerland and the Netherlands for clients including Canal+, Siemens, KNP, Daimler Benz, Olivetti, Renault and SwissAir.
