Known for “uncompromising linearity, precise use of natural light, and stark white facades,” Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier is the latest subject to be highlighted by NOWNESS as filmmaker Barbara Anastacio was recently invited by the renowned modernist to take a look inside the newly opened Richard Meier Model Museum. Home to a research library, rotating exhibitions and Meier’s own personal art studio, the museum – which occupies the second floor of Jersey City’s Mana Contemporary – is highlighted by more than 300 of the architect’s models – a display that has more than doubled since it opened with just over 150 models back in January. Comprehensive in scope, the collection spans the entirety of Meier’s career and includes everything from 1965’s Smith House in Connecticut and Los Angeles’s Getty Center to the glass towers that call Perry Street home along Manhattan’s West Side Highway. Said Anastasio of the space:

It’s a wonderful feeling to hover over a lifetime of Meier’s work. You get a real insight into the process of making architecture, how it evolves from an abstract idea to an actual building. It’s like the Ariadne’s thread into Meier’s mind and creative labyrinth.
