ICON: Richard Meier...and he's taking over @interiordesignmag today! Richard will share, from his own words, what inspires him and reveal a few new projects! We were delighted to recently publish @seamarqhotel in Gangneung, South Korea—Meier’s first project in South Korea, first ground-up hotel, and first large-scale commission to encompass architecture AND interiors!!!! “The interiors relate to some of my early houses in the U.S. in terms of openness and transparency,” Meier says. “Many of the cues for the hotel’s design came from the site—its light, its topography.” We are excited to spend the day with Richard Meier. ENJOY this special day! @richardmeierpartners Photos: #Roland Halbe #goforthanddesign

Editor in chief @thecindygram is also celebrating the work of Richard Meier today! Follow her to see her favorite projects. @RichardMeierPartners: In thinking about the ideas that go into making architecture, one has to think about not just the context, the circumstances of the site, its history, the surrounding buildings, the topography, and the nature of the place in the public realm, but also about what it can be, what it will be, and how it will be meaningful for future societies. Models are a great tool to organize and clarify our ideas and with all of the changes that are taking place in the world today, it is important that architecture continues to move us aesthetically forward, as great architecture always has.

ICON: Richard Meier...and he's taking over @interiordesignmag today, so i'm celebrating alongside! When Italcementi, one of the top con­crete manufacturers in the world, enlisted Richard Meier & Partners Architects to design its new headquarters, iLab, what resulted is rock-solid but startlingly airy, too. Interior Design Hall of Fame member Richard Meier constructed the 250,000-square-foot building, which culminates in an arresting V-shape prow, primarily with a high-strength, low-maintenance reinforced concrete that Italcementi specifically developed for the project. The product reacts with ultraviolet rays to break down harmful automotive and industrial emissions—leading to one of the first LEED Platinum certifications in Europe. (This glassed-in gallery protrudes 20 feet through a precast-concrete screen supported by stainless-steel pipe)! Bravo Richard!

ICON: @richardmeierpartners…and he's been taking over @interiordesignmag today, and I’ve been celebrating alongside! Last post of the day, and certainly the luckiest!...introducing the Douglas house, referred to as Lucky number six: This 4,500-square-foot home designed in 1973, the sixth residential commission in Richard Meier’s career, was recently listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the architect’s first project to earn such status. It was 1971 when he began building the steel-reinforced wood-framed structure on 5½ steep lakefront acres in Harbor Springs, Michigan, commissioned by James Douglas, then president of Blue Arrow Douglas trucking company, and his wife after they spied a similar Meier house on a 1968 magazine cover. Outside, Meier and team were careful to spare as many of the site’s conifers as possible. Inside, they appointed the five floors with furniture by Le Corbusier, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and Meier himself. The current owners did a full-on restoration in 2011. Thanks Richard for moving design forward! ???? by @scottfrancesphoto #goforthandDESIGN

@RichardMeierPartners: We are fortunate to have so many projects in unique sites and also adjacent to water, such as the new Cittadella Bridge in Alessandria, Italy. Looking at the context has always been something that is very important in our work. We look at how that project not only fulfills the functional requirements of what it is, but how it responds to where it is and how it enlivens the community. As in many of our buildings, the Cittadella Bridge is a composition of volumes and forms, and at dawn and dusk, and with the change of seasons light will filter through the structure providing for particularly animated light conditions.
