Few designers have articulated a meeting ground for contemporary art, design, and architecture as brilliantly as Richard Gluckman. His projects pursue simplicity and repose yet never fail to yield a strong sense of pleasure. A graduate of the Syracuse University School of Architecture, Mr. Gluckman sailed a small boat from Scotland to Cape Town and Rio de Janeiro before establishing his New York office in 1977.
He began to develop his approach for converting industrial buildings into exhibition space in his work for New York's Dia Center for the Arts, and has gone on to complete numerous important contemporary arts spaces, including the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Site Santa Fe, the Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin, and the expansion and renovation of galleries and administrative offices for the Whitney Museum of American Art.
His commercial gallery designs include the Mary Boone Gallery on Fifth Avenue, the sublime Paula Cooper Gallery on West 21st Street, and the Gagosian Gallery on Wooster Street. Mr. Gluckman has worked with numerous artists on their installations, including Walter de Maris (Broken Kilometer, 1979), and Dan Flavin and Jenny Holzer (several projects with each); he has also collaborated with Richard Serra and Robert Wilson.
His retail projects--including the New York boutiques of Helmut Lang, Gianni Versace, and Yves Saint Laurent--are elegant, intelligent, and sexy. In 1999, he designed a spa facility and resort in Arizona, exhibition galleries for Sotheby's New York, and Gagosian's gallery on 24th Street. Other projects include the Mori Museum in Tokyo, renovations and additions to the North Carolina Museum of Art, and the Picasso Musuem in Spain.
In the continuing evolution of Mr. Gluckman's practice, the architect's longtime associate David Mayner became a partner in the firm in 1998. The work continues to dazzle. A master of proportion, texture, and light, Mr. Gluckman shows us again and again the extraordinary power of design that knows when to hold back, and when to give.
