It is New York City's first ever design week, NYCxDesign. Fifty years ago, when Richard Meier established his architecture firm in New York it was a different world. Since opening his doors in 1963 Meier has become one of the most prolific and well-known architects practicing today.
He is simultaneously an architect's architect—he is one of the celebrated New York Five—and known around the world for building iconic and accessible buildings.
